Kelli is originally from Shreveport, Louisiana and grew up in a church that taught her God loves us and wants the best for us. This message (God loves us!) is what called her into ministry. She wants everyone to know about that love! Kelli went to Texas Christian University in Fort Worth earning a BA in Religion (Christianity and World Religions). She went to seminary at Brite Divinity School at TCU. Following seminary she moved to Kansas City in service of Community Christian Church. There, Kelli met her husband, Nick Crews, a Tulsa native. Kelli and Nick have a daughter, Charlie. They also have 2 bird dogs that are more interested in earning treats than retrieving quail.
