Speakers and Worship Leaders at Teen Quest Camps and Events:

We prayerfully choose speakers who challenge and connect students to His Word and worship leaders who love the Lord and engage students in attentive worship. Throughout the year Teen Quest is dedicated in recruiting the best to speak to young and old alike during camps and events at the Teen Quest Ranch.   While not relying on slick sermons, funny illustrations or catchy choruses, the Truth is given in a way that is totally relevant to today’s teen while emulating Christ.    Listed below are some our speakers and worship teams.

Stephawn Lindsay, at a young age, having the opportunity to be apart of a Sony signed rap group and performing as the leader for one of the most well-known local “go-go bands” in the DMV called “X.I.B”, Stephawn performed at major arenas.  But one Sunday afternoon, in the year of 2009, life changed for Stephawn unexpectedly.  At a time where he was at one of the most trivial points in his life, Stephawn realized he was missing a genuine relationship with God and was led to watch video sermons on YouTube in the basement of his parents home. Completely inspired, God changed the trajectory of his entire life.   He wants to share that with you!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sean Kelly is originally from Penn Hills, Pastor Sean graduated from Geneva College in 2004, where he majored in student ministries. Sean has a love and passion for sharing God’s word with young people and has been doing it for 17 years.

With everything this world is throwing at our youth one of the most important things a teenager needs to understand is that their identity is not found in material things, relationships/friendships, occupation, or the sports they play. It is found in Jesus and I believe the more we realize that now as an adolescent, the more prone they are to living a life of purpose and glorifying God no matter what their calling may be. Sean resides in the North Hills of Pittsburgh with his wife, Melissa, their awesome son Kayden, and dog Bailey.
