While serving in the Philippines, he married his wife, Kristyn, and they now have 3 grown children. Since 2003, Kel has served as YWAM’s Assistant Field Director for Asia and the Pacific – overseeing 2,000 missionaries, many in restricted or remote areas. Their goal is help mobilize the body of Christ to become increasingly strategic with its resources in order to effectively target the remaining unreached peoples of the world.
