Steve & Sharon Kelly
Pastors of Wave Church, Steve and Sharon came to Virginia Beach in 1999 to build a church of influence with a passion to help people live life well. Before their arrival in Virginia Beach, Steve Kelly served as Executive Director for the largest ministry college in the world, Hillsong College. As a world renowned apostolic preacher and leader, with a heart to pastor and influence future leaders, Pastor Steve founded Wave College with the intent to truly equip students for life and leadership.
Aligning with the DNA of Wave Church, we believe that ministry and community service through the work of a local church, is the best way to build successful, responsible citizens and community leaders. Our confirmation of this methodology is demonstrated by our uncommonly high retention and graduation rates. Through the HomeLink program, our students are encouraged to catch the vision and excellence of Wave Church and bring value from what they are learning, as a servant leader, into their local church.
