EBC Leadership Team


  • Wally Kelly, Senior Pastor

    Pastor Wally is deeply devoted to the Word of God and to Christ.  Wally's first love in ministry is disciple making - the biblical model of multiplying God's image bearers through the proclamation of the Gospel to the people of all nations.  He has personally engaged in teaching the Bible internationally in Haiti and India, as well as throughout the various parts of the United States.


    Wally is passionate about global disciple making that starts in our community and moves outward. He believes, “We, like the Apostles in the book of Acts, have been instructed, entrusted and empowered to be Christ’s witnesses in concentric circles around our place of origin. For the Apostles it started in Jerusalem and moved outward to Judea, Samaria and to the ends of the earth. Purcell is our Jerusalem, Oklahoma is our Judea, the United States is our Samaria, and like the Apostles we must go to the ends of the earth, where no one else is willing to go, making disciples. God desires to be known among all peoples.”


    Wally and his wife, Wendy, their two daughters, Mackynzie and Kiley and their son Emmaus have come to Emmanuel from Buffalo Junction, VA and look forward to serving alongside the people of Purcell!
