Say you’re one of the biggest stars in the world. You’re making hit TV shows and huge movies. You’re influencing millions upon millions of people.

And you’re a kid.

How do you deal with the challenges, and how might you seize the opportunities? Is it possible to be deeply mission-driven in such a world?

This week, Rabbi Ari speaks with Kel Mitchell, the two-time Emmy-nominated actor and comedian who starred in massive shows like Kenan and Kel and All That, and hit films like Good Burger. And who now, in addition to his continued success in the entertainment business, is the youth pastor at Spirit Food Christian Center in Winnetka, California. They talked about Kel’s story; how you balance between inspiration and consistency in faith; why kids’ TV in the 90s had a lot more depth than it does today; why the Bible sees young people as capable of heroism; why social media is so important; and much more! Listen here:

About Good Faith Effort: The Hebrew Bible is every bit America’s moral founding document as the Constitution is our political founding document. Every week, Rabbi Dr. Ari Lamm speaks with thinkers, writers, artists, and faith leaders to explore how the Bible continues to inform our lives today, from politics to psychology to pop culture, bringing Americans of different traditions and persuasions closer together as so much else threatens to pull us apart.
