If you call or visit the office of Messiah Lutheran Church, you will be greeted with Kelly Mitchell’s sunny disposition! However, being the first point of contact for our church is only a sliver of what Kelly manages. Her responsibilities extend to Payroll, contributions, keeping church supplies stocked, and all things Accounting. She received her BBA in Accounting from the University of Oklahoma and her MSA in Taxation from the University of Houston.
Kelly and her family first became a member of Messiah in May of 1993 and has been serving Messiah as the Office Manager for over 25 years! Her beloved husband, Jim, is a retired Attorney and together they raised two beautiful children, Kelsey, and Dakota. Over the years, her family has grown to include both a son and daughter-in-law and two precious grandchildren, Charlie Rose, and Wyatt.
It is no secret that Kelly loves the outdoors, reading, and playing with her grandchildren. One thing you would not know though is that she was a member of the Apache Belles Dance Team her freshman year of college. Her team not only performed at Dallas Cowboys games but in the Whitehouse Rose Garden for the one and only President Carter. Talk about a hidden talent!
