Pastor Carolyn was born and raised in Sacramento, California. She grew up in a Spirit filled Christian home, attending an Assembly of God Church. She was dedicated to the Lord as a baby and received Jesus as her Savior at 9 years of age. All she ever knew was the Christian life until she turned 13. At 13 she backslid from the Lord, started drinking, doing drugs, going to wild parties and listening to rock music, all the while attending church. By the age of 17 she quit going to church altogether. In October of 1983, at the age of 20, she came back to the Lord through the ministry of Evangelist/country singer Penny Baker who was holding Revival Meetings and exposing the occult and rock music. This ministry completely opened her eyes to the unseen world and the devil's lies. She totally rededicated her life to the Lord and had the privilege and opportunity to travel with this wonderful lady evangelist as her assistant. After her season of travel was over she submitted herself to a local church in Tacoma Washington, By His Word ChristianCenter, pastored by Jann Butler. For three years she served in various areas of the Ministry Of Helps and eventually met and married Donald Kielley. While under Pastor Jann's ministry Don and Carolyn were ordained as Elders and then were ordained and sent out as Pastors over the church Pastor Jann started in Bremerton, WA. Don and Carolyn are currently the Senior Pastors of this work, Word & Spirit Church. Pastor Carolyn serves as Pastor with her husband, preaches and teaches the Word of God, leads worship, sings with the worship band for services and oversees every ministry in the church. Pastor Carolyn also devotes much of her time to raising their two lovely daughters, Dawn Lauren and Jennifer Leeanne.
