Kelita, Speaker, inspirational singer, keynote, Northpointe Church“We had a packed house at North Pointe, Edmonton with over 300 women for Kelita. She had us laughing with the characters and comedy. But it was when she shared her story through song and testimony that I watched women weep and find hope in Jesus for their lives. Kelita compassionately and patiently ministered to women for a good while after the event. Two weeks later women are still coming to me, thanking me for having Kelita share. Her story is powerful because it tells of how great God is! Kelita communicates empathetically through comedy, testimony and story. On top of all this, she made it a pleasure with her.”
~Pastor Bob & Jocelyn Jones- North Pointe Community Church, Edmonton, AB Canada

“Kelita was such a great choice for our district ladies retreat.  She ministered in such a unique way, as her methods of communication were so effective and engaged all those in attendance.  In one session alone, we found ourselves experiencing every emotion possible.  Through vulnerable, personal story-telling, Kelita reached the hearts of women and directed them to the grace and healing she experienced through Jesus Christ her Lord!  Kelita’s story of restoration from brokenness and pain, was used to bring healing and restoration to the women of our province.  I would recommend Kelita to any group of women who are looking for real, life giving ministry, regardless of where you’re at in the spiritual journey.”Lori Patrick WM Director for the AB & NWT District of the PAOC, Canada
