Bill Mills

Founder

Bill Mills is one of the founders of Leadership Resources International. His ministry began in youth work, where God gave him a heart for encouraging young people by teaching them the Bible. That same vision has remained through the development of our church conferences, pastoral training, and work with missions. Bill’s passion is still to bring the encouragement of the Scriptures to God’s people in order to equip them for ministry, and God has graciously allowed him to fulfill that passion through many hundreds of conferences throughout the world. Bill studied at North Park College, Northern Baptist Seminary, Luther Rice Seminary, and Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. Two of Bill’s great joys are sharing this work with his life partner, Karen, and fishing with his two sons, Peter and Joel.

Todd Kelly

International Director

Todd oversees the direction of all of Leadership Resources’ pastoral training venues around the world as well as LRI’s staff of international directors and teachers. Todd came to Leadership Resources in 2002, after 15 years of pastoral ministry in churches in Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Illinois. Todd brought his appreciation for expository preaching and a conviction of the life-giving power of God’s Word to his task of shaping Leadership Resources’ curriculum early on. Since then, he has encouraged and equipped pastors in Africa, Asia, and Latin America and has played a key role in forming crucial partnerships with other missions organizations in our common effort of training national pastors. Todd enjoys spending time with his family and catching King Salmon in the Kenai River of Alaska.
