Best known for his comedy roles on Nickelodeon, Kel Mitchell is very serious when it comes to faith.
Hollywood actor Kel Mitchell says one thing has been consistent in his career: his desire to share his Christian faith.
“I always speak about my faith when I’m on set,” says Mitchell, who is best known for his comedy roles on the Nickelodeon channel.
In an interview with Movieguide® he said, “When I’m working, I’m always praying with others. Now when I go on set, my main thing is, I feel like you meet everybody for a reason – who can you pray with in this moment?”
In addition to his career in the entertainment industry, Mitchell is also a youth pastor at a church outside Los Angeles. He uses his media experience to reach this generation for Christ.
“I was trying to figure out how to juggle the entertainment business with also being a youth pastor, and I heard the Lord so loud and clear during one of my prayers. He was like, ‘Fine, Kel, this is the time now to do it.’”
Mitchell then began to use his platform for ministry.
He explains, “I’ve always spoken at schools, travelled all around the world, given advice to youth groups in juvie homes and all over. The main topic within these messages was love and God’s love and what God can do in a child’s life.
“Me being on Nickelodeon and being in these family shows, I really understand teenagers. I bring that same energy and fun and comedy to the church, as well. It’s that same energy, you still feel it. I’m super excited and unashamed, and I love the Lord, and the Lord is cool, the Lord is awesome, too!”
