Together Kelly and Barbara Caywood live a life of faith. God has blessed them through the years. They owned a successful construction company, evangelized full-time for 4 years, and now are pastoring at LifePoint Sanctuary in Moorhead, MN. Their faith has always been in God as they trusted in Him to provide for their every need. As they evangelized and now as they pastor, their passion is for the many men and women that are hurting, who are living a life sentence and don’t even realize it. God has given them a burden for lost souls. Everywhere they go, no matter what they are doing, they always try to let others see the love of Jesus inside of them. To let others know that they truly care about them and love them, right where they are.

The Lord has given Kelly Caywood an incredible testimony. It is available on a 23 minute DVD and in the book From Prison to Pulpit. He was born and raised in Baytown, Texas, and was adopted as a baby by parents who were Pentecostal. He was kidnapped by his biological mother and found in Dallas, Texas, with cigarette burn marks and bruises. At age eleven years old he found out he was adopted, and then began to rebel. Kelly started out by breaking into a coke machine, and then quickly turned to drugs and alcohol. He went from juvenile detention centers to prison. He was doing 60 shots of cocaine a day; drugs had taken everything from him. He ended up with 134 misdemeanors and five felony convictions. He knew about God, but didn’t know if He was real. On Kelly’s last time to jail, he was facing a life sentence. At this time, he turned to God and the Lord filled him with the Holy Ghost in the Harris County Jail in Houston, Texas. Kelly went from a life sentence to one year. This is just a brief story of what God has done for Kelly Caywood.
