Azusa Pacific alum Tamala P. Kelly ’09, M.Div. ’14, co-pastors a church with her husband, runs a women’s ministry, and is a mother of four. Throughout her journey, she’s learned the importance of the question, “How did you get here?” And she asks it to help understand the stories of those she interacts with, people who are hurting, broken, lost, or otherwise in need of what only Jesus can provide.
