Pastor Mike Kelsey currently serves as Lead Pastor for Preaching and Culture at McLean Bible Church in the Washington, D.C. area. Born into a strong lineage of Washington, D.C. pastors that includes his father and grandfather, 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 major 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.
