  Assistant Chaplain

Kalie Kelch has a passion for youth ministry and helping teens find their true identity in Jesus and develop a lasting relationship with Him. She moved to Calhoun in 2012 and quickly became involved in the church and school, serving as a worship coordinator and children’s ministries director and helping with the praise and worship program. What began as a God-sized dream to minister to the students in an official capacity, culminated when she was offered the position as assistant chaplain in 2016.

Kalie is married to Randy, who works as the IT director at GCA, and they have two children, Katelyn and Ryan. In addition to spending time with God and nurturing those He puts in her path, Kalie has a variety of interests outside of ministry, including reading, cycling, traveling, playing the piano, woodworking, and gardening. A perfect day for her is spending time with her family or GCA kids playing together or engaging in meaningful conversations.

 Kalie graduated from Highland View Academy and Southern Adventist University, and she is a certified Christian life coach.
