Connections Pastor/Youth Pastor

Kelly Fjestad is the Connections Pastor and the Youth Pastor at 7 City Church. Kelly is an ordained minister with the Assemblies of God. She graduated from Trinity Bible College in Ellendale, ND with a BA degree in Biblical Studies and a Church Ministries Minor. Kelly has served in different areas of church ministry for the last eighteen years. Her willingness to serve wherever needed has given her experience in many types of ministry. Kelly has written a Bible study, Paused: Protecting Your Faith When God Says “Wait” and blogs at www.kellyjoy.org. Kelly has a passion for the Word of God. She desires to help others grow in their understanding of Scripture and to fall in love with the God who wrote it! 

Kelly and her husband, Brad, have five beautiful children: Jesse, Asher, Maverick, Remington, and Cabella. Kelly has the privilege of homeschooling them and she enjoys every (ok, not every) moment. In 2011, God called Kelly and her family to move from Minnesota to Texas. So, they sold half of their belongings, packed up their five kids, and moved across the country. Moving away from family was hard, but God has been faithful. Kelly enjoys spending time with her family, shopping, going for walks, and watching NASCAR (Go Kyle!).
