Speakers

Jade De Kelaita

Jade De Kelaita

With a life given to the red-letter text of God’s Word, Jade De Kelaita’s heart has been stolen 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, and in churches. Jade spent over two months in Africa in the fall of 2016 under Heidi Baker’s ministry, IRIS Global – Harvest School where, through brokenness, she discovered one must go to the lowest to reach the highest, die to live, and surrender to win the war of Love. Jade has an M.A. in Strategic Communication, but she knows no level of education can ever qualify her for God’s work. He chooses, and He qualifies.
