Rev. Rio Kelley is committed to helping others see their own Divinity, the best in themselves no matter what situation or circumstance they are in, and realizing that they have within them all they need. She is an Agape Minister and is the Director of Admissions and Registrar at Agape University. She is also the Director of the Agape Association of Communities, which is a Global Community based in Relationship. 
Rev. Rio was first introduced to Agape in the Fall of 2000 and immediately entered into classes and sacred service. She continued her studies and became an Agape Licensed Practitioner in July 2004. As an Agape Practitioner she served in the Prayer Ministry, and also began assisting in the University classes. Her journey through Agape Ministerial School allowed her to deepen even further, opening to God's vision as her life. She was among the Inaugural Class of Ministerial Graduates in June 2008. She became an Agape Minister in 2012 and her path as a minister
continues to emerge as she strives to embody the qualities of Authenticity, Enthusiasm and Elegance. 
Rev. Rio's heart called her to ministry and she remains true to this calling. Her ministry and vision is to bring the world together through loving relationships (or as she calls it “Loving Out Loud”) realizing that the first relationship, is the one we have with ourselves and Spirit. She is committed to assisting others to remember that we need each other, and that despite the 'high tech' society, it is only through Relationship and Love that we Truly meet ourselves in the 'other'. She teaches from the knowing that as we learn to fully Love ourselves Out Loud, we become available to love others in the same way. We begin seeing the 'other' in ourselves, and 'ourself' in the other, and in this way we can truly have a realization that we are in fact One. One Community, One Heart, One Love.
