Brian has been the senior pastor of Calvary Murrieta since 1989, and was the assistant for 4 years prior to that. Brian’s personal goal is to learn to love God completely, love people authentically, and to make disciples globally. He and his wife have a passion for justice and work alongside the local anti-human trafficking task force in obedience to Proverbs 31:8-9 that says, “Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves; ensure justice for those being crushed. Yes, speak up for the poor and helpless and see that they get justice.” They actively engage their church in ways that promote awareness, advocacy, and action, striving to make a difference. Brian’s hobbies include traveling, surfing, fishing, hunting, photography, and sushi. And of course, spending time with his family.
Kelly Bell is married to Brian, Senior Pastor of Calvary Murrieta. They have two children, Zach and Mical. Zach is married to a lovely girl named Caitlynn who just had twins; identical boys named Harper James and Owen Scott. Their daughter Mical got married this year to a wonderful young man named Tyler Andrews, so they added a son inlaw to their family this year as well. Kelly has been the Director of Women’s Ministry at Calvary for over 25 years and loves what she does. She has a passion to see women grow in their faith and become doers of the Word, not hearers only. She is a conference/retreat speaker, as well as a Bible Study teacher. She is the author of a Bible Study series called “Reasons to Rejoice.”
Concerning Human Trafficking and Modern Day Slavery, she has a passion to advocate for the rights of the oppressed and exploited, and to “Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves.” Kelly feels compelled to do whatever she can to help “ensure justice for those being crushed.” (Proverbs 31:8-9) Kelly is a regular volunteer for Riverside County’s Anti-Human Trafficking Task Force and oversees the Justice Ministry at her church, working to help people figure out how to use their gifts, talents, and finances in fighting this battle!
