Chelsi has appeared on national television and in various publications, yet above all, she seeks to please Jesus.

Since accepting Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior, she has been passionately sharing His Word to all those she meets. 

In college she was labeled, a "Jesus Freak" because of her zealous evangelism and desire to please God in every area of her life. She shared the message of Jesus, invited students to church, and witnessed the power of God in the lives of those around her. Looking back today, she clearly understands the importance of planting seeds in people's lives. Not everyone she ministered to surrendered their lives to Christ in college, however, many who she witnessed to are following Christ today. The testimony is that because of her obedience, students accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Glory!

During her second year of law school, she mentored and discipled over 20 female students at a local HBCU. This remains one of the greatest seasons in her Christian journey as she experienced God's grace, mercy, and love like never before. 

In 2013, Chelsi launched, AlwaysPraying.com, a site to encourage the importance of prayer. Share your prayer requests and keep watching as God does what He does best, touch more lives through our individual acts of obedience. 

In 2017, Chelsi launched "Life with Chelsi," an audio daily devotional for women who desire to grow more intimate in their relationship with Jesus while exploring everyday issues through a deep dive into scripture.

Chelsi and her husband, Jon, lead a thriving youth and young adult ministry in Richmond, Virginia. Jon has been a youth pastor for over 9 years. Their young adult ministry, The Return RVA, was birthed out of a passion for young adults to return to church. They launched this ministry in June of 2016 and in the first six months had over 96 young adults visit the ministry and six give their lives to Christ.

Chelsi continues to share her faith in the arenas of politics, community service, and law. She has spoken at numerous churches and faith-based events across the country.
