Eric Kelly - Program Director

Eric is a home grown, grass fed, free range, Bozeman native. After graduating from Bozeman High School in 2013, Eric betrayed his Bozeman roots and fled to Missoula for a degree in Elementary Education. Eric is married to Megan Kelly and has a wonderful one-year-old son Theodore. Eric, Megan and Theodore just returned to Bozeman from a two year sting in the beautiful country of Nicaragua where he worked at Nicaragua Christian Academy International. While they both hope to return to the place their son was born, Eric and Megan are incredibly excited to care for the students in Bozeman. Eric is the Program Director here at the Rock and is excited to work in a place that is fully invested in supporting and caring for the youth in Bozeman. The Kelly family loves to be outside in God’s creation, eat tasty food, and spend time with friends and family. They are excited to see how God uses their time back in Bozeman.
