Richard Kelley

Director of TableKIDS and Discipleship

Richard heads the TableKIDS and discipleship efforts at the Table.  He has been engaged with youth ministries since 2000, when he began as a leader-in-training for an AWANA program in his hometown of Carpinteria, CA.

Richard continued pursuing his passion for building others in South Africa, where he began an educational ministry in 2010 called the Mamelodi Initiative.  While not originally from DC, he moved here in 2011 to teach high school (and for the museums).

He now has transitioned from teaching to legal work on behalf of youth.  In his free time, he is always trying to find new coffee shops to spend his time in, so if you need a recommendation, he’s glad to provide them to you.
