Kelli Kosuda Tingen


Kelli has served as the Children’s Ministries Director at Wesley Memorial since 2016. She is passionate about the United Methodist church and helping children and families experience God in fresh, creative ways. Her ministry includes directing our Sunday School program, leading our children’s choirs, teaching Godly Play, and the coordination of all programs for children and families.

She and her spouse, Larry, have one daughter and LOTS of cats, and in her free time, Kelli enjoys knitting, making music, and watching Duke beat UNC (in any sport).

Because I’ve experienced God’s love and generosity at Wesley Memorial, I’m joyful about the opportunity to share that same love and generosity, not only within these walls, but also within the community of Wilmington and beyond.

After moving to Wilmington, we wanted a church that had a good worship service, friendly members, and a strong youth program for both of our children… after visiting Wesley, our kids said, ‘This is it. This is the church for us. We don’t need to go anywhere else." We knew it was going to be our new church home.

We’ve spent more than twenty years of marriage searching for the right church home – we’ve found it at Wesley Memorial. The people are genuinely warm, and they will meet you wherever you are on your faith journey.
