Our Name. Our History.

Living Out Loud Youth Ministry, or LOL for short, was founded by Keiada Holmes and Carmen Jackson in December 2014. A non-profit 501c3 organization with a focus on maximizing worship through the arts, LOL was well-known. 


In 2015, LOL expanded quickly, adding 75 members and 16 churches. The LOL youth were exceptionally gifted and committed to their ministry. Musicians, singers, dancers, poets, rappers, artists, and musical engineers made up the group of young people involved. 


LOL Youth Ministry made significant progress and traveled a lot. Their lengthy resume has left a lasting impression on our community. A number of opportunities, including singing with recording artist CaseyJ and working closely with Grammy Award winner Kelontae Gavin, were accomplishments made possible by this ministry.
