Jade De Kelaita
With a life given to the red-letter text of God’s Word, Jade De Kelaita's heart has been captured by the world’s rejected – the orphan, the widow, the poor, the prisoner, the homeless, the sick, and the forgotten. The presence of God she carries has opened doors for her to speak nationally and internationally in prisons, schools, universities, nursing homes, under bridges, churches, and nations such as Africa, Asia, Central America, UK, and more. She is birthing a “2:6 Movement” in the earth where true disciples are rising up to live out 1 John 2:6. “Whoever claims to live in Him must live as Jesus did.”
Nate encountered God at the young age of 4 years old. For over 12 years he has served in children's ministry at a local church. From volunteer, camp counselor, curriculum developer to Children's Pastor. Nate has a burden for the next generation to encounter Jesus and to truly know the God they serve. He graduated from Christ for the Nations where he met his wife Rebecca. They now serve at Trinity Church in Dallas, TX as both Children's Pastors and Campus Pastors.
