Kelly Borst
Ministry Support


I have been married to my best friend, Troy, for 17 years. I absolutely adore him. We have three beautiful, crazy kids. Troy is a pastor at another South Tampa church. I hope that the best way to describe me is striving and learning to be more like Christ every day. Sometimes I miss the mark, but I am running the race.

I came to Bayshore realizing that Jesus was asking me to serve His church. Psalm 84:10 has become my heartbeat. It says “Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere; I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked.” So, here at Bayshore, I hold doors praying for those who minister to this congregation. I love it!
