Rob Kelly’s concern that churches in Charlotte were divided and declining led to the 2015 launch of FORCLT (ForCharlotte), a ministry working to connect local pastors and open their eyes to the mission field God has given them in their own backyard. As founding President and CEO, Rob leads the FORCLT network, engagement platform, Movement Day Charlotte, and annual State of the City Report.
Prior to FORCLT, Rob served as a pastor for 13 years, co-founded the CLT/ONE young adult ministry, and lectured at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. He also coaches city networks, both locally and globally, on how to build a healthy, sustainable backbone organization to support gospel-centered city transformation. Rob has been a member of Leighton’s Charlotte mentoring community for several years.
