Jacqueline O'Neil Kelley, born and raised in Fresno, California, began singing at the age of 5 years old with her brothers. Raised in a family of 10, all of them musically and artistically inclined, she was encouraged by her parents to pursue her music and art. Jackie was called to the ministry of music at a very young age. By the age of 7 she was playing piano and singing in church, many times ministering through song before her father preached his message. At the age of 12 she began teaching and directing children, youth and adult choirs.
Jackie's dynamic vocals and extraordinary gifts have taken her throughout the United States and around the world, ministering with ACOP ministries to countries such as; Rome, Germany, Egypt, and Dubai. Touching many lives from young to old with her musical versatility and dynamic ministry, she is reaching souls like never before!
In the past 20 years God has opened the doors for her to teach vocal techniques and beginning piano. Jackie has served as Music Director and Worship Leader at several of the fastest growing Central Valley Churches.
