Rev. Kelly Crissman, Pastor

Newlyn Street United Methodist Church

Rev. Kelly Crissman has loved the Lord and the church all his life.  He is a native of Graham, North Carolina and was a profoundly active and faithful member of First UMC in Graham.  It was there Kelly also found the love of his life, Beth.  Both Rev. Kelly and Rev. Beth are Elders within the WNCCUMC, with Beth serving as senior pastor at West Market UMC.  Their son, James and his lovely wife, Priyanka, reside in Boston, Massachusetts, and daughter Maddie resides in Winston Salem.

After living and working throughout the United States, both Rev. Kelly and Rev. Beth heeded the call into full time ministry and have served several appointments and ministries.


The B-i-b-l-e, yes that’s the book for Rev. Kelly…and us!

Rev. Kelly leads us in inspiring, engaging worship through scripture, music, prayer, and delightful humor. His inspirational leadership empowers us to become more of a community of believers and prayer warriors as he encourages us to bond to each other in love.  His message of God’s grace and peace to us all weaves throughout his sermons, his prayers, and indeed, his personal life.

Come as you are to worship with us as we are.

Come grow with us.

Together, we’ll praise the Lord with Rev. Kelly Crissman leading the charge!
