Kel Mitchell is a Nickelodeon star who became a licensed pastor at Spirit Food Christian Center and has a new movie on the way. The Kenan & Kel star talks to the youths about the importance of talking to God during tough times. He was with the Helps Ministry for over ten years, and now his weekly teachings spread around the country.
In an interview with Fox News Digital, the 44-year-old actor disclosed that he has always known God because he grew up in a church. However, he pointed out that there’s a difference between knowing God and having a relationship with him.
According to Nickelodeon’s Kel Mitchell, he became a youth pastor after he got into several frustrating situations which resulted in depression. He tried to figure out everything by himself, but couldn’t get anywhere until God helped him.
It’s a relief to see the star doing alright after such an episode in his life. Hopefully, God helps others like he helped the actor who recently linked up with Kenan on SNL with Keke Palmer.
