Who We Are

We are a community … We are committed to becoming a healing community engaged in the work of reconciliation between race, culture, gender, and social classes.

We are people who desire to experience God … We are convinced that growing in our relationship with the Father is central to our faith and our Christian life.

We are a kingdom, people … We are committed to the proclamation of the kingdom of God and to bearing witness to the deeds of the kingdom through signs and wonders.

We are a compassionate ministry … We desire to lean toward the lost, the poor, the outcast, and the outsider with the compassion of Jesus.

We are a missional people … We seek to plant churches that are culturally relevant in a wide variety of settings locally, and internationally.

We Are. . .

George & Carolyn Kelly


Pastors George and Carolyn Kelly came to the Atlanta Vineyard Church in 2015 after serving for many years in ministry at various churches in various capacities.

The two have been married since 1996 and are equal partners in life, family, relationships, and ministry.

George was previously Pastor and Minister of Christian Education for many years at Bethel Family Church (now called Bethel Family Christian Church). Carolyn has ministered faithfully and fruitfully to children and youth of all ages for more than 40 years; she is singularly gifted in the area of Childrens’ ministry.

They both became part of the Atlanta Vineyard Church council in 2016. Within a few months of their new leadership roles, George was officially recognized and set forth as a Pastor in the Vineyard Association of Churches.

In August of 2019, George was installed as the Lead Pastor of the Atlanta Vineyard Church. The Kelly’s see their roles as helping to prepare the next generation of leaders to assume their roles as Servant-Leaders within Christ’s Kingdom.

George and Carolyn are blessed to be the parents of two adult children: Briana and Stephen.

The Kelly’s enjoy joyously celebrating life with family, friends, and with all of those that they are fortunate to meet.
