Kelsey's parents and maternal grandparents were missionaries in Japan for many years. Kelsey was born in Turlock, CA during World War II. He went with his parents to Japan after the War and spent the next 14 years there.
He struggled with many questions about life, how he could be sure of heaven, and how he could have victory over sin in his life. He came to have assurance of salvation when he was in his second year of college. He attended Pillsbury Baptist Bible College in Owatonna, MN and later the San Francisco Baptist Theological Seminary from which he was graduated in 1969.
Janet's parents were in the pastorate for many years in Minnesota and her father was on Christian radio too. She was saved when she was six years old.
Kelsey and Janet Pietsch helped start a church in Pacifica, CA while Kelsey was in seminary. They then helped rescue a church in Southern California.
From there they went back to the mid-west for 25 years where they pastored churches in Wisconsin, Iowa, and Kansas. They came back to California in the fall of 1999 to start churches here.
Kelsey and Janet currently reside in Paso Robles, CA and have four grown children.
