Rev. Roy Beth Kelley is the pastor of Atkins First United Methodist Church and Bell’s Chapel United Methodist Church. She appreciates the chance to know, love, and learn from a diverse group of people who all love God.

Rev. Kelley is passionate about creating an experience that intentionally focuses on the outsider who doesn’t yet know Jesus Christ. She witnessed this in past appointments when she served alongside groups of people who saw how God wanted them to love and serve the least of these around them.

Rev. Kelley has a B.A. in English from Arkansas Tech University, a J.D. from the University of Arkansas School of Law, and is currently pursuing an M.Div. from United Theological Seminary in Dayton, Ohio. She lives with her husband Ed in Russellville and has two grown sons, Jonathan and Mark.
