Graham and Rachel Kell planted cpcc in 1998. Their primary occupation is to be parents of Josh and Brad, and although ministry is important, their family remains their highest priority.
The Kells have been married since 1992. They moved to Dallas in 1993, where Graham studied Masters in Theology (majoring in Pastoral Ministries) at Dallas Theological Seminary. He received experience in pastoral work, counselling, youth work, and teaching in North America, before returning to Australia in 1997 and starting Chancellor Park Community Church.
After seeing spiritual and numerical growth in the Sippy Downs area of Chancellor Park and raising up qualified leaders, Graham received an additional Masters of Clinical Psychology at the University of the Sunshine Coast. In September 2019 Graham stepped down from his role as Lead Pastor to work full time at Flourish Psychology. He and his wife Rachel are still members at Chancellor Park and active in the discipleship ministry on the Sunshine Coast.
