Pastor of Children and Youth
In July 2021, Kelli Harrison joined Trinity’s ministry team as Pastor of Children and Youth. Her ministry became a clergy appointment in October 2023. She graduated from Saint Mary’s College, Notre Dame, Indiana with a bachelor’s degree in Religious Studies and a minor in Women’s Studies and Justice Studies. In 2020 she graduated with a Master of Divinity from Chicago Theological Seminary. Before attending seminary, Kelli worked in social services focusing on families with children ranging in age from infants to teens. Kelli grew up in the cornfields of Indiana where she ran in the woods and pretended to be a minister by preaching sermons on her Mr. Microphone. She is an animal lover, who previously had a volunteer pet therapy dog. She is an amateur artist, who enjoys painting, sculpting, and whittling. Kelli still loves being in the forest and often goes hiking in the Chicago area and in Southwest Michigan. She feels called to share a ministry focused on grace and God’s love reaching out to us.
