About Me

My name is Aaron O’Kelley.  I grew up in East Texas, graduated from East Texas Baptist University in 2002, and earned a Master of Divinity degree from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in 2006.  I am currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Systematic Theology from Southern while teaching at Augustine School in Jackson, Tennessee.  I married my high school sweetheart in 2001, and we welcomed our first child, a boy, into the world in 2006.  God blessed us with another boy in April of 2009.

I enjoy talking theology, philosophy, and politics, watching good movies, playing the guitar, walking, and playing with my sons.  I am conservative both theologically and politically.  The name (Re)Publican is actually a reference to the “publican” (tax collector) of Jesus’ parable in Luke 18, of course with the double meaning of a reference to the Republican party (to which I belong, though I have been disappointed in the party recently).  The etymology of the name “fenderpooh” is the Fender guitar brand combined with “Pooh,” as in “Whinnie the Pooh,” a random combination of two things that I like.  I chose that name for its uniqueness several years ago when trying to decide on an email address.  It seems to have stuck with me.
