At one time nationally recognized as "Americas fire chief," Kelvin unexpectedly found himself caught in a fireball of controversy over his orthodox Christian beliefs, for which he ultimately was fired by the citymaking him a focal point in a national battle over religious freedom.
Misrepresented by activists and the media, Kelvin relied on his faith to bring him through. In due course he emerged from the flames of scandal unscathed, like the friends of the prophet Daniel who were thrown into the burning furnace.
Kelvins story is a sobering warning of how Christians faithful to biblical teachings are increasingly at risk of persecution in todays culture. It is also an inspiring example of overcoming racial prejudice and adversity, and finding the courage to take the heat and stand for the truth.
Prior to that, he had a distinguished 30-plus-year career as a firefighter, which included serving as "Americas fire chief," the President Obama-appointed United States Fire Administrator. In 2012, he was named Fire Chief of the Year by the International Association of Fire Chiefs.
In addition to overseeing ministry operations at Elizabeth Baptist Church, Kelvin is a sought-after speaker to mens groups and on religious liberty issues across the country.
Born and raised in poverty in Shreveport, Louisiana, he earned a bachelors degree in organizational management from Wiley College (1998), a masters in industrial and organizational psychology from Louisiana Tech University (2004), and a doctorate in interdisciplinary leadership from Creighton University (2018).
Kelvin and his wife, Carolyn, have been married for thirty-seven years and have three children and one grandchild. They reside in Atlanta, Georgia.
