Their Ministry Focus
Ken and Keli serve Cairo Christian Fellowship, providing pastoral leadership. Keli facilitates children’s programs, discipling young followers. Both serve extensively in the wider region of Europe and the Middle East as members of the Three Worlds team, supporting and developing healthy church leaders. Ken provides connection with the Church of God in Lebanon, is an external member of the consultation team for the congregation in Rome, and is the Three Worlds point person for all refugee relief in the region, including partnerships with the Church of God in Germany and France.
Few of our global personnel have had such an influence on the younger generation of emerging leaders as Ken and Keli Oldham, inspiring them to think about missions and in shaping them through discipleship. That alone is testimony to the way that God has and continues to use them to shape lives for service to the Kingdom.
Both their families share a rich heritage of dedication and service. Ken was born in Anderson, Indiana to Bill and Lucy Oldham. His father met his mother on an Anderson College Tri-S trip to her native country of Guyana, South America. His father went on to pastor churches in Indiana, Alabama, Louisiana, and West Virginia. Ken’s grandparents, Ed and Meriam Oldham, served as missionaries in Guyana as well as serving churches in Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Indiana, and Colorado.
Keli was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan. Her parents, Frank and Pat Camper, served in pastoral positions in Michigan and Ohio. Keli grew up with a tender heart toward urban ministry, originally planning to study social work.
Ken and Keli met and married as students at Anderson University. Before their appointment with Global Strategy, Ken and Keli pastored congregations in Tennessee and Alabama, congregations with deep connections to and a passion for the work of God internationally.
