Camp Pastor: Rev. Jeremy Kelly

Jeremy Kelly is the Pastor of Community Care at Pearce Memorial Free Methodist Church in North Chili and an ordained elder in the Genesis Conference. He graduated from Roberts Wesleyan College with a B.A. in Religion and Philosophy in 2007 and has a Masters of Divinity through Northeastern Seminary. After a career of 15 years at Wegmans Food Markets, Inc., Pastor Jeremy felt called to serve God’s Church in full-time ministry where he enjoys coming alongside of those facing difficult times in life and helping others find joy in experiencing deep intimacy with Jesus. He and his wonderful wife of twelve years, Michele, are the proud parents of Emma (9) and Joshua (7) and two new kittens (Skittle and Henry). In his free time he loves to fish, read classic novels, go on nature walks, or play basketball with his family.

 

Worship Music: Sense the Call with Trevor & Christina Leach

For over a decade, Trevor & Christina have been playing music together and leading the church in worship at camps, conferences, youth retreats, and their home churches. In 2009 they officially formed the band, Sense the Call, which has released two albums, toured across the midwest and northeast, and experienced the true joy, that comes with seeing God’s plan in action, along with the restlessness that occasionally happens naturally when we don’t know what tomorrow holds.

The pair got married in 2013 and moved to Illinois for a few years, where they continued to play music and lead in church on a weekly basis. Today, Trevor & Christina are back in upstate NY where Trevor is the music director at Webster Bible Church and, together, they raise their two boys and run a coffee roasting business. Their music can be described as acoustic, energetic, lyrically edifying, and genuine.
