Kelly Spencer



Lake Fellow in Parish Ministry

(317) 253-6461 | KSpencer@SecondChurch.org

One of Kelly’s greatest joys is listening. This passion for listening creates a relational style of leadership, which greatly informs the way she pastors. Because God’s love is steadfast, unconditional, and radically inclusive, Kelly strives to engage a ministry that honors these incredible and life-changing characteristics of our Creator. This work looks like preaching justice, practicing mercy, and walking humbly with Jesus Christ.

To best prepare for well-rounded and thoughtful ministry, Kelly studied Business Administration and Music Performance at Furman University in South Carolina before she graduated from Princeton Theological Seminary with her Mdiv. Kelly met her now wife, Katie, while studying at Princeton, and greatly delights in the opportunity to build her marriage on the foundations of love, grace, and hospitality with a fellow pastor. They were blessed to be married in May 2020.

In her free time, Kelly finds life and rest in music, books, bike rides, and trying new things with her wife.
