The actor, of the 90’s hit comedy show “Kenan and Kel,” also shared the Scripture Romans 8:28-29 in the New Living Translation.
“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.”
According to his bio at the Spirit Food Christian Center, Kel is using his new title to speak “to youth across the country encouraging them to trust in the Lord and follow their dreams.”
“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,” the bio adds. “Mitchell is additionally the spokesperson for Black College Expo, which provides numerous scholarships for students throughout the year.”
