Jeff and Kellie Anderle
Jeff and Kellie met when they were students at Texas A&M University (Class of ’91). During this time Jeff was the head Young-Life leader at Allen Academy High School and the youth pastor at A&M United Methodist Church. Kellie was a volunteer youth counselor at A&M UMC. Jeff thought she was the most beautiful thing he had ever seen and commenced to woo her. They married in 1991 and have been involved in ministry together for their entire adult lives.
Jeff was the Youth Pastor at Foundry United Methodist Church and Mission Bend United Methodist Church when he and Kellie were in their twenties. Kellie pioneered Foundry’s afterschool program, taught at St. Pius High School, and began to home school their children. They eventually ended up planting The Vineyard Church in Chattanooga TN where Jeff was the Senior Pastor and Kellie was the Children’s Pastor for 16 years. Jeff also served as the Southeast Regional Church Planting Coordinator overseeing all new church plants in a seven- state region and established a regional summer camp for Vineyard teenagers that is still going strong. Jeff and Kellie have four adult children and lovely daughter-in-law.
Jeff and Kellie bleed maroon and have returned to Aggieland to establish a strong Vineyard Church in the city of Bryan College Station with their friends Gary and Trisha Peil. They can be seen frequenting Aggie sporting events of all types
