Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men,
after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. (Colossians 2:8).

Welcome to my personal web site. Born, Kelison Richard Helms, Jr.,  in Berlin, Germany during the United States occupation following World War II, I was raised in the perfect American small town, Smethport, Pennsylvania, where I attended all twelve years of school and graduated with the SAHS Class of 1965. After High School I attended Bentley College in Boston, Massachusetts and then floated for a while before joining my father in the family accounting practice. I pretty much stayed in private tax practice for the next thirty-five years, retiring from accounting with the millenium.

For the past 20 years I have lived in the beautiful village of Wellsville in upstate New York. The Lord has blessed me with four grown children. Two fine sons, Kelison III and Jim (both living in Wellsville.) and two gorgeous daughters, Suzi (from Onieta, NY) and Lou (from Bridgeport, NY.) They have in turn blessed me with eight wonderful grandchildren, James, Aaron, Megan, John, Joshua, Katie, Nancy and Baily.

Retired and disabled at the age of fifty-one the Lord called me into His service. Now, an ordained Independent Evangelical Pastor, I am honored to minister in His Name to the world over the Internet and in the local community as residential Chaplain at various nursing homes and assisted living homes here in the Wellsville/Sco area and as a supply pastor when called. Preaching God's wonderful message of Grace and Love, near and far, through His Word and Sacraments.. God is so good!

Now as you surf this site it is my sincere prayer that you will be blessed as you learn more about us. May God bless you and yours exceedingly abundantly above your greatest expectations through Him who is able. Amen.
