Matt and Sarah Keller moved from the only home they ever knew in Indiana to Fort Myers, FL when they were in their early twenties. With a big dream in their heart, a small team and only $9200, they planted Next Level Church in 2002. Starting with 35 people in a movie theater, later moving to South Fort Myers High School, Next Level remained portable for nine years while consistently growing every year. After moving into their first permanent facility, God has used Pastor Matt and Pastor Sarah to lead the church from 35 people at its grand opening in 2002, to now over 3,000 people in three locations and a Dream Center.
The Keller’s have always had a heart to coach and train others. There has been a lot of learning along the way and they are continuing to take notes, so they can help others. Pastoring ministry leaders is just a part of their calling! They want to help pastors and their teams grow and learn how to become better leaders in the body of Christ! It can be a lonely road and the Keller’s desire is to come along side and assist ministry leaders by providing life-giving relationships, and ideas, concepts and principles that will help to take pastors and churches to the next level.
