Bruce Kellar was not raised in a christian home and came to be a Christian at age 19 in a very dark time in his life. He says that he was not looking for God in his life, however God was looking for him. Bruce, being a quiet bashful shy person was asked by a friend to go with her to a youth rally in London Ontario, after a lot of encouragement Bruce consented to go.
It was in this experience Bruce observed true happiness in people who seemed to have a joy that he had never seen before.The outing gave Bruce the opportunity to engage with kind people who cared and demonstrated a love and respect that was void in his life for a very long time. It was in this new setting that Bruce excepted Jesus as his Savior and quickly began his new journey following Jesus.
His journey lead him to the love of his life who became his wonderful wife on August 16, 1975. Bruce and Joan are blessed with four daughters, three son in laws and two grand children while Lydia the youngest finishes her studies still lives at home.
Within a short time, God had called Bruce to serve him in full time service. Bruce's heart was tugged with a challenge that he had struggled with for along time. While Bruce and Joan were involved in a successful building contracting firm built from the ground up that God had brought great success to their lives at this season.
Bruce questioned and fought the call for a number of years running from the commitment like Moses and Jonah , feeling incompetent with wondering what could God possible do with me?
Bruce answered the call on his life on March 3, 1999 in which God made it perfectly clear that this is what God was wanting. Bruce instantly felt the peace of God like no other time within his life . He began his long lengthy tracking having to start by going back to school at 44 years old driving 3 hours to Toronto for full time ministry.
Bruce was Ordained in 2011. He was appointed to his first charge as Sr Pastor in 2000.
The Kellar family remained in this charge just short of six years.
Bruce and Joan felt the call to plan a new work in their area with a non-traditional non-conventional Church for unchurched people in Flinton Ontario. Bruce remained in this charge for 11 years. He then served as a transitional Pastor to Frankford Community Free Methodist Church for just short of two years. And was appointed lead Pastor in late 2017 to what is now called Frankford Community Church.
Bruce and Joan love people, laughter and don't forget food.
