Kel Mitchell Urges Giving God ‘Whatever Situation You’re Going Through’

By Movieguide® Contributor 

Actor Kel Mitchell took to Instagram to remind his followers to trust God and give him their problems.

“Imagine whatever situation you’re going through is falling off of you right now in the name of Jesus. See, sometimes you got to just take that thing off. Take it off. Because sometimes people put things on you that wasn’t supposed to be on you,” he said. 

“This is spiritual warfare…and you got to understand that it might be something that’s in your family that was put on you. Somebody praying against you, but that stops right now,” Mitchell continued. “You got to trust Him.” 

He also declared, “Everyone will know it was God,” and “Prayer is in my business plan.”

Mitchell became a licensed pastor in 2019 after God helped him through mental health challenges. Screen Rant shared a past statement from Mitchell about these challenges.

During “times of going through depression, suicidal thoughts, all these different things, and working on shows at the same time, God was there,” he said, per Screen Rant. “Similar to Robin Williams when he was doing characters and bringing happiness to us all, right, same way with the characters that I was doing. I was bringing happiness within it but going through my own battles, you know?” 

The actor now serves as a youth pastor at the Spirit Food Christian Center in Winnetka, California.

“When Kel is not acting, writing or directing, he speaks to youth on a weekly basis across the country encouraging them to Love God and follow their dreams,” the church writes. “Kel also has been faithfully involved in Helps Ministry for over 10 years at his church, and in 2019 became the Youth Pastor of Spirit Food Christian Center in Winnetka, Ca after his Pastor, Pastor Garry D. Zeigler, saw God’s calling on his life to reach & teach the youth.” 

Movieguide® previously reported on Mitchell:

Actor and comedian Kel Mitchell, known for his role in 1997’s GOOD BURGER, recently opened up about how he felt the call to become a pastor. However, Mitchell said that it was not easy to surrender his secular call as a comedian…

“There was a time where I felt like how will it be accepted? You know? How can I do this? I even searched around, like ‘Lord, send me people that have done this’ and I had no other actor or someone in the entertainment business that I could turn to that I knew was a youth pastor but also currently on television,” Mitchell said. “So I was trying to figure that out.”

However, after many years of contemplation, Mitchell said his wife, Asia Lee, encouraged him to step into the new occupation in faith.

“I remember I went to my wife and I said, ‘Babe, I’m trying to find someone to talk to about this,’ and she said, ‘Well, what’s wrong with being the first? What’s wrong with being that? Just being the first and trusting in the Lord? He told you to do this so trust in Him.’ And so that just spoke to my heart,” Mitchell recalled.
