Biblical Counseling Discipleship Ministry Director
Kelly has worked with students and families since 1998: as a youth associate leading bible studies, planning recreational activities and organizing the youth calendar, as well as teaching youth Sunday School. She also served as a chaplain while in high school.
God began burdening Kelly for her own family in a new way as her second child was becoming a toddler by encouraging her to make sacrifices in her time to better serve her two children and her husband. From there God began to show her the importance of obedience and a submissive heart to His authority and how that influences the training and discipline of her children. God taught her to trust in His Word for guidance and direction in this ongoing task. God then turned Kelly’s heart toward other parents who are in the midst of this same battle for their children’s hearts. “Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.” Proverbs 4:23
Kelly is a certified Biblical Counselor, wife to Jay and mother to Deacon and Ruby.

Intercessory Ministry Director
Shirley is a widow and is retired from the public education system with thirty-two years of service. Her training under Doctor Beth Alves founder of Intercessors International, and eight years of ministry service with Cleansing Streams Ministry, along with other ministries that she has been involved in has given her a strong foundation in intercessory prayer.
Shirley’s role as Intercessor Ministry Director with Crazy8 Ministries provides the opportunity to be a “watchman” in prayer for the ministry, the staff, the residents in the home and the clients. She believes prayer is divinely ordained as the means by which all temporal and spiritual good are directed to us. Therefore, she believes if we ask, seek and knock the windows of Heaven will be opened and pour forth upon Crazy8 Ministries the blessings we need to share with others throughout our community. She says, “There is no other place I would rather be.”
Jennifer is married with 2 children. The greatest gift God has trusted Jennifer with is service, and it shows in her love for serving others with whatever needs they may have.

One of Jennifer’s favorite verses is Galatians 6:9 “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.’
