Meet our pastor

 


Pastor Dorian Kelly hails from the beautiful island of Jamaica and has been a Seventh-day Adventist Christian for the past 25 years. 

His early pastoral training began at Northern Caribbean University in Jamaica, where he obtained a bachelor’s degree in religion. He entered pastoral work as an evangelist/bible counselor in the East Jamaica Conference of Seventh-day Adventist in 2004.

During his tenure at the North Street and Arnold Road SDA churches, he met and later married the love of his life and best friend Jodi- Ann McLeod. This union has produced three children, son Dontae, daughters Jaida  and Janeik. Pastor Kelly later continued his pastoral work in the Central Jamaica Conference of Seventh-day Adventist in 2008 where he served in four pastoral districts as Associate and Senior Pastor respectively. Sensing the need for further preparation for pastoral ministry, Pastor Kelly enrolled at Andrews University in 2014 where he obtained a Master of Science degree in Administration, with the emphasis in church administration. After graduation, he joined the Pastoral staff at Walnut Street Community Seventh-day Adventist church in Pottstown, Pennsylvania in 2016, and served as a local church elder and evangelism missionary.  In 2017, he accepted the call to serve the Hillside SDA church in Harrisburg PA and Truth Tabernacle SDA church in York PA as senior Pastor.

Pastor Kelly is an ordained pastor, a family man, an evangelist, a gifted organizer, and a compassionate servant-leader who lives by the philosophy 'love in spite of'.

During his spare time, Pastor Kelly enjoys playing dominoes, basketball, engaging in healthy conversations and spending time with his family.
