She accepted Christ as her Savior and was baptized at 8 years old under the pastoral leadership of her father and she later answered the call to proclaim the Gospel under the leadership of the legendary Rev.

In her effort to enhance the work of ministry, she has trained ministry leaders at all levels including ministers and youth leaders, guided ministry leaders in creating and realizing their visions, organized ministry conferences, retreats, worship services, and other community events. She is clear that the work of the Kingdom of God extends far beyond the walls of the local church building. Thus, she has led in the community by forming faith based partnerships between church and public schools, served on the boards of the BaSix Knowledge Academy, Operation Xposure Youth Foundation, Judah Praise Cheer and Dance, Inc.

In 2017, Delesslyn became a FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) reservist which has created opportunities for her to support citizens in crisis after natural disasters.
Dr. Kennebrew has excelled academically. Upon completing a Bachelors of Arts degree in Mass Communications at Loyola University in New Orleans, LA, she went on to earn two professional degrees – a Juris Doctorate from the University of Arkansas School of Law and a Master of Divinity from Emory University in Atlanta, GA. Delesslyn has maintained her connection to Emory University by working as an Adjunct Professor in the area of Preaching various semesters since 2005. In 2016, she graduated from the Doctor of Educational Ministry program at the Columbia Theological Seminary.
Her motivation for pursuing excellence in all areas of her life is found in Colossians 3:17, “And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” This is her primary motivation as she continually pursues opportunities for training and development, embraces diverse activities and relationships, and empowers others through teaching, preaching, consulting, listening, singing, acting, and writing.
