John & Kelsie Mullen
Prague Christian Fellowship has been led by John and Kelsie Mullen since the fall of 1996. John & Kelsie were among the founders of The International House of Prayer Prague (IHOPP) in 2002 and John was among the founders of the Christian International School of Prague (CISP) in 2004. John also served on the Board of Directors of both organizations for a number of years. Kelsie currently serves on the IHOPP & YWAM (CZ) board of directors.
John & Kelsie are both from Texas. John graduated from the University of Texas with a Finance degree and began working in the banking/real estate sector (later had his own commercial real estate appraisal/consulting company). John came to Prague on short term missions outreach in 1992. God’s calling on his life became more and more clear. He attended Dallas Theological seminary while a youth pastor, and did a pastoral internship at the Dallas Vineyard under John Wallace. He was then invited to come back to Prague and pastor PCF by the indigenous Czech church that planted PCF. He had just started seeing Kelsie when he received a formal invitation to move to Prague. One of the things that attracted John to Kelsie was that from the age of 16 Kelsie already felt a strong call from God to live overseas as a missionary. Kelsie had already studied sociology, nursing and had gone on many short term mission trips when they met. God had a plan,… and in 1996 they started dating, got engaged, got married and moved to Prague~ all in one year! They enjoy hospitality in their home with their grown kids and dog. Mitchell and Matthew were born in Prague and Ester Moriah was adopted from the Czech Republic at 3 months of age. John & Kelsie also enjoy hosting interactive worship services and seeing others released into their destinies in the kingdom of God.
Carolyn Maiden was raised in San Diego, California. After attending college in Kansas she became a physical education teacher, was married and had 2 children. Ten years later she was divorced. In 1975 Carolyn remarried Harold Maiden, a pastor in the United Methodist Church where they served together for two years. Then Harold retired from 28 years of pastoring, they moved to San Francisco and both began new careers. They continued to serve in churches throughout their 35 year marriage.
Carolyn enjoyed a 30 year management career in customer care and sales administration for an international medical device manufacturing company. She was uniquely positioned by God to mentor and minister to her employees and customers alike. Throughout her career she was able to influence corporate decisions with Christian ethics.
Shortly after her retirement at 68, Harold passed away. She felt led by God to move to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Her quest to know Christ intimately and serve Him exclusively became an all consuming desire. She was led by the Holy Spirit to learn to walk by faith as she was discipled by Cindy Riley (Breath of the Spirit Ministry). At 72 God called her and Cindy to the mission field in Prague where they have been serving in PCF since September 2015. Carolyn has served as an Elder at PCF since 2017. She is an intercessor and ministers in hospitality and discipleship. She has a passionate desire to see the captives set free and healed.
