Michael Kelley lives in Nashville, TN with his wife, Jana, and three children: Joshua, Andi and Christian.  With a passion for the local church, Kelley serves as the Director of Discipleship for LifeWay Christian Resources, in addition to being an author and speaker. As a communicator, Michael speaks across the country at churches, conferences and retreats and is the author of three Bible studies and the book, "Wednesdays Were Pretty Normal: A Boy, Cancer, and God."

One of the most notable facts about Kelley is his walk through life with a son diagnosed with leukemia when he was only 2 years old.  For three and a half years, the Kelley family dealt with their son's condition, which even reached to a point where 86 percent of his blood cells were affected by the cancer. Through the healing of the Lord, little Joshua was cured, and the Kelley family has a testimony to tell for years to come.  

Student Life is thrilled to serve alongside Michael Kelley at our events.  Check out his website for more information!
