A church for all ages.

Pastor Kelly has been in Ministry for 32 years and is the first Pastor of South BA Baptist.  He received his Bachelor's Degree in Business Management from Northeastern State University in 1983, and also attended Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.  He is a visionary leader, whose calling is evident, with a desire to impact the Broken Arrow Community.  He is an avid sports fan who loves watching the Dallas Cowboys, St. Louis Cardinals,  OKC Thunder, and all things OSU.  In his free time, you can find him on one of the many bicycle trails Tulsa has to offer or playing with his dog, Baxter.  He and his wife, Paula, love spending time together, especially traveling.  They have been married for 38 years and have three children; Luke, who lives in Tulsa; Mark, who lives in Denver, CO; and Katie who lives in Bozeman, MT.
