It has been my joy and privilege to know and work with Christine and Rick Kelley. Watching them work with the upmost confidentiality in their ministry while helping those who are hurting is refreshing. Their love for people and dedication to our Lord is clearly shown in their desire, and in all they strive to accomplish. Throughout the years of knowing and working with them, I have always found them to be humble, helpful, and willing to pray. I know that you will find the same in them and in Living In His Image Ministry. Pastor Joel A Smith, Summerville, Georgia
It is my privilege to know Christine and Rick Kelley and to engage them in our church as well as some special events. From the moment I met them, I knew this couple was truly good people who are honorable, steadfast, and obedient to all God has called them to accomplish. We have spoken on many occasions in regards to Living in His Image, and I can see their compassion and drive to assist pastors and their families in their everyday struggles in life.
