Kelly Kaufman

Kelly Kaufman is our Parish Associate for Children's Ministries.  The Reverend Kelly Kaufman began her work in ministry a little over 16 years ago serving as the Director of Christian Education at a church in Waynesboro. She is a graduate of Mary Baldwin College, now Mary Baldwin University and has a Masters in Divinity from Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary.  Before ordination, she served three churches, two as the Director for Christian Education and one as the Director for Youth Ministry.  Ordained in 2008, she has served two churches in Virginia as the Associate Pastor of Christian Education at a very large church and Solo Pastor at a very small church.  Recently Kelly was the Interim Director of Programs at Massanetta Springs Camp and Conference Center.  In 2016 Kelly joined the staff at GenOn Ministries as the Community Outreach Coordinator. Throughout her ministry she has spoken at youth retreats, provided leadership at the Massanetta Middle School Conference, led various training events, and has led workshops (and preached) at many Presbyterian Women gatherings.  Her favorite call is taking care of her family.  Kelly and her husband Evan reside in Charlottesville, VA. They have one son (5), Calvin (not named for John Calvin, but we love the humor of it!!), and a baby girl, Maggie Joy.
