Developing an authentic, passionate love for Jesus Christ that expresses itself through vibrant, active faith is the central goal from which springs all of Kelley’s teaching. Her contagious love for her Savior and her ability to express deep Biblical Truths in ways that are easy to understand, combine to bring Scripture to life and demonstrate how we can apply it to our lives today.
Whether for a one session special event or an entire weekend retreat or conference, Kelley will awaken your hunger for the Word and leave you wanting more of Jesus.
Some of her speaking topics include:
Living by Faith
Challenges believers to abandon religious complacency and commit themselves to actively believe God and live according to His will. Kelley examines the difference between possessing faith and living by it, and reveals what Scripture teaches about the cost of unbelief. Focusing on the goodness of God and His promises to His own, you will discover the joy of living a vibrant faith and be encouraged to trust God for His best.
Abiding in Love
Explores Jesus’ command to “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength” (Mark 12:30). Linking love to obedience through 1 John 5:3, Kelley demonstrates through Scripture how to have a personal, intimate relationship with an unseen God. Bringing faith to life through practical illustrations, Kelley reveals how faith demonstrated through obedience opens the door to His grace and positions us to see God move on our behalf.
Why does God call us to pray? Does prayer change God’s mind? Kelley explores the principles of prayer found in the Word and demonstrates how prayer is the conduit to release the will of God in your life. Learn how an active prayer life will deepen your relationship with the Lord, transform your thoughts to join Him in His will, and release the blessings of God to be poured out “on earth as it is in heaven” (Matthew 6:10).
A Fruitful Vine
Ephesians 2:10 teaches that through salvation, we have been “created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” John 15:16 adds that we were chosen and appointed to salvation by Christ, “to go and bear fruit – fruit that will last.” Kelley brings to light the distinction between producing works for Christ by our own hands and allowing Him to bring forth the fruit of God’s will from us. Learn how yielding to God’s plans, purposes and power yields a harvest of blessing.
Grace to the Humble
According to 2 Corinthians 9:8, “God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.” If grace is always available and provides all that we need, why do we have such difficulty accessing it in our circumstances? Using the story of Hagar and Ishmael’s near fatal journey through the desert in Genesis 21, Kelley explores the power available to us through grace and reveals why we often keep ourselves from becoming beneficiaries of it. Learn how to position yourself to have God’s will and power released in your life.
A Season of Hope
Explores the four names of Christ given in His birth announcement from Isaiah 9:6, “For to us a child is born, to us a son is given . . . and he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” Based on the Biblical principle that God’s names appear in Scripture as aspects of His character are revealed and experienced, Kelley reveals what the birth of Jesus opened up to us, and how we can encounter and know Christ personally by each of those names.
Victory in Jesus
(Most effective as a 3-4 session retreat due to the depth of content) Explores taking up the authority we have in Christ to rid the enemy of his power in our lives and walk in Biblical freedom. Recognizing that most believers don’t even realize how far they are living outside the inheritance Christ died to provide, Kelley reveals what is available to you in Christ and encourages you to press in for God’s best and start claiming ground in your own Promised Land.
Kelley will explain the concept of spiritual warfare, reveal the source of the enemy’s power, and celebrate how Christ overcame it through His work on the cross. Defining spiritual strongholds and exposing the root of what causes them, she offers practical tools through Scripture on how to get free and live in the abundance of Christ.
