About Dr. Kelly Nelson Birks
A California native, Dr. Kelly Nelson Birks was born in Downey, California in 1957 and grew up in the quiet suburb of Montebello, located in Los Angeles County. Growing up in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), he was regenerated at about 10 years of age and water baptized at about the same time. After graduation from high school, a fact that still amazes him, Dr. Birks spent some time studying at East Los Angeles Junior College. A suggestion from his pastor was what sent him off to Bible College. He graduated with a bachelor of arts degree in pastoral theology from L.I.F.E. Bible College in Los Angeles. Several years as a Pastor in both the assistant and senior levels followed.
After moving to Denver, Colorado, Dr. Birks received a call from the Evangelical Friends Church in Omaha, NE to come and pastor. Over the years that followed, Dr. Birks earned a Th.M (Master of Theology) in Biblical studies, a D.Min. and a Ph.D in Biblical studies.
Over the years, Dr. Birks has had much interdenominational experience in Charismatic, Pentecostal and conservative circles. He was originally ordained into the ministry under the International Church of the Foursquare Gospel. He subsequently served in Pentecostal, Charismatic, Quaker and independent churches.
As a result of his coming into the truths of the reformed faith and later the preterist understanding of Biblical eschatology, he now serves as Pastor of Messiah Reformed Church in Omaha, NE.
Dr. Birks CD and book ministry extends across the country and abroad.
