I was born to serve and help others. That's what I've done as a pastor for the past 35 years. Through my work as a pastor I have, I have been able to be a part of many different missionary projects.  About 17 years ago, a group of youth from my church started talking about a type of  evangelism that would attract and allow me to work with other young people. We spoke of SOTAM and the idea behind it, but that was that. Then when I heard that SOTAM's dream was alive, my heart was overwhelmed with joy.  In 2017, we were invited to participate in our first ever trip to El Salvador to be part of the SOTAM Outreach Ministry staff. Working in that camp with those young people impacted my life in a great way. I could see how the church could fulfill the Great Commission that given to us. If SOTAM can be a way of serving our Lord’s will , then I too want to be a part of SOTAM, and serve God’s purpose.

Hello!! My name is James Tellez!! I have been directly linked to SOTAM since its inception in 2015, and I am really excited to be a part of a brand that is stepping into a new dimension!! SOTAM is a dream come true for me. From a young age, I have always wanted to be a part of an organization whose end goal is helping humanity both spiritually and physically. Here at SOTAM, it’s a double blessing because I have the privilege of building on top of a foundation that I have been a part of. Please keep SOTAM in your prayers!  😊

Kelly Feehely has been part of SOTAM since its inception in 2016. She believes in its’ core value of reaching children in a playful environment to allow them to feel valuable and enjoy their faith walk with God. Kelly is a native Baltimore resident for her whole life and a Christian believer from childhood on up. Kelly is a licensed clinical professional counselor (LCPC) and has been practicing for 10 years. Her areas of expertise are trauma, sexual abuse, anxiety and depression, couples work, women’s issues and spiritual issues. She believes that integrating her faith walk with her emotional, physical and the social aspects of her life keeps her whole and allows for a true sense of self to be lived out. She sees all people as having inherent value with unique gifts that one can only offer individually and encourages each person to live that out. Kelly is passionate about allowing children the freedom to learn, play and feel safe in a recreational environment. Kelly has been to El Salvador with SOTAM in 2017. She looks forward to seeing SOTAM International grow and reach hundreds of children around the world who don’t get the opportunity to be part of a sports team and experience teamwork that is founded in Christ-like principles.

Being a pastor’s wife for 24 years, I’ve been given many opportunities to give and plant into different mission projects.

When we truly look around in the world we live in, you can see there is such a big need to not just preach about Jesus, but to be like Him.

In 2017, I was able to be part of the team that went to El Salvador. The experience was amazing!

My heart has always wanted to make a difference, so becoming part of the SOTAM Outreach Ministry was something that felt right in the calling I felt that has been given to me. I know that with God, and this team, we can change and enrich lives! So honored and blessed to be part of this team.
