Kelly began her time at St. Andrew’s as a young child when her parents moved to the neighborhood and enrolled her in the Mother’s Day Out program. She was very active in the youth program and remembers fondly singing in the youth choir.

Kelly graduated from the University of Houston with a Bachelors of Science in Hotel and Restaurant Management. She worked in restaurants during college and upon graduation she took a position with the Four Seasons Hotel in Houston. It was there she met her husband Paul Lewis.

Paul and Kelly were married in Ireland and lived there for 2 years before returning to Houston to start their family. They have two daughters, Emma and Abby. Kelly felt the call to ministry in 2010 when she volunteered to be the interim director of children’s ministries. In 2011 she became the permanent director of Children’s ministries and oversees children from birth through 5th grade.

Kelly is very passionate about her work with the children and their families, encouraging them to include Jesus in their daily lives. She leads a Thursday bible study for women and is active on the Presbyterian Women’s council. Her favorite events of the year include Life Flight, Easter and Christmas services and Vacation Bible School.
