Courageous Conversations

Mike Kelsey

Pastor Michael Kelsey, Jr. currently serves as a Lead Pastor at McLean Bible Church. He is the proud son of Bishop Michael V. Kelsey, Jr. and First Lady Sheila Bowens Kelsey, and a grateful product of the New Samaritan Baptist Church in Washington, D.C. Mike grew up with a strong foundation in the gospel and by God’s grace, he fully surrendered himself to Christ as a student at the University of Maryland, College Park. After receiving his Bachelor of Arts in Rhetoric and Political Culture in 2004, Mike went into full-time ministry with the Luis Palau Association, helping organize evangelistic festivals in strategic U.S. cities, and eventually accepted the call to join the pastoral staff at McLean Bible Church in 2007. He has a passion to advance the Gospel in multiethnic contexts and longs to see emerging generations invest their lives for the glory of God. He is married to his college sweetheart, Ashley, and they have three young children, Ava; Michael, III; and Jackson.
