John P. Kelly brings a wealth of wisdom, knowledge and experience to train God’s End Time Warriors. The Lord uses his background as an educator, bridge builder, businessperson, sportsman, ministry developer and many other experiences to inspire and equip men and women to fulfill their destinies.
During the 1960’s, he was a high-steel iron worker on the Verrazano Narrows Bridge in New York and many other prominent bridges; foreshadowing his calling to bridge the gap between God and mankind and people to people. After his dramatic salvation experience with Jesus Christ, he began to minister as an evangelist in prisons and jails and organized The Bridge Ministries, the largest prison ministry on the East Coast until 1985.
In 1980, after establishing several successful local churches, God told Evangelist/Pastor Kelly to “Go wash the feet of the young men and women who would be the End Time Warriors of my Spirit.” He then discovered many non-denominational church leaders who believed God was leading them in a new direction. A network of churches and ministries began to form with John Kelly’s leadership that spread across the United States and into several countries.
As a strong advocate of world missions, he also began training and leading international mission teams. His anointing for reaching, leading and training people in Haiti, Central and South America, Africa and other nations revealed the gift God had given him to be an apostolic leader.
Throughout the years, Apostle Kelly’s reputation as an expert coach on leadership development, vision, missions and various strategies became well known to ministry and business leaders. To advance his pragmatic and biblically principled training, he established John P. Kelly Ministries, Inc., also doing business as LEAD. LEAD is a two-fold acronym: Leadership Education for Apostolic Development (for ministerial leaders) and Leadership Education for Advancement and Development (for Christian entrepreneurial leaders).
