Officially became a Licensed Pastor last weekend. Blessed and thankful for my Spirit Food Family and thank you Pastor Zeigler for seeing the calling of God on my life and trusting me with your Youth Department 🙏🏾 #SoulfulSunday @mySpiritFood “And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them. For God knew his people in advance, and he chose them to become like his Son, so that his Son would be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters.” Romans 8:28-29 NLT
According to Spirit Foods, “When he is not acting, writing or directing, Mitchell speaks to youth across the country encouraging them to trust in the Lord and follow their dreams. Kel also has been faithfully involved in Helps Ministry for over 8 years at his church, and most recently became the Youth Pastor of Spirit Food Christian Center after Pastor Zeigler saw God’s calling on his life to reach & teach the youth.”
The bio continues, “Furthermore, He and his wife were honored with an award from the Carson Black Chamber of Commerce for providing a safe program for kids to show off their creative talents in their dance variety live show, The Back House Party. Mitchell is additionally the spokesperson for Black College Expo, which provides numerous scholarships for students throughout the year.”
Many people responded to his tweet with encouraging words.
@Iamkelmitchell, I could just see your favor from God and your beautiful, humble Spirit as I watched you on DWTS! Today’s my birthday and I feel like you’ve given me the greatest gift, which is knowing, without a doubt, you’re bringing souls to Christ! 🤗🙏🏽
