If you watched TV in the ‘90s, you probably remember Kel Mitchell well. Alongside Kenan Thompson, who has gone on to become a long-running star of Saturday Night Live, Mitchell starred in Nickelodeon series including All That and Kenan and Kel, as well as the movie Good Burger, based on the duo’s sketch comedy.
However, this month, Kel has announced a new career.
In a Facebook post, Kel said that he “officially became a Licensed Pastor.” According to the post, he is now the youth pastor at L.A.’s Spirit Food Christian Center church. Along with the announcement, he posted Romans 8:28-29, which reads, “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.”
Last Sunday , Mitchell announced on his Twitter page that the Spirit Food Christian Center in California officially ordained him as a pastor.
Officially became a Licensed Pastor last weekend. Blessed and thankful for my @spiritfood Food Family and thank you Pastor Zeigler for seeing the calling of God on my life and trusting me with your Youth Department ?? #SoulfulSunday #AllGod pic.twitter.com/ERXUefiUsT
