Hebrew Nation Radio’s Renewed program has given me an opportunity to meet (even if sometimes it’s only virtual) some amazing people in Adonai’s Kingdom. Kelly Ferrari Mills is one of those precious ones. The story of how Kelly and I first connected is a neat testimony of just how creative Adonai is — He will even use our “mistakes!” Who is like Him?!
One day in May, I prayed that Abba would send us (Renewed Radio) a great marriage testimony to edify and encourage the Body. Meanwhile, Kelly sent an email to Grace in Torah thinking she was writing to Dr. Hollisa Alewine of The Creation Gospel. Dr. Alewine is my primary mentor and teacher. I tag and link to her material so often that Grace in Torah pops up in searches when she is Googled. I forwarded Kelly’s email to Dr. Alewine, but I couldn’t help but to marvel at this so-called “mistake.”
Kelly Ferrari Mills of Doorkeepers Ministries wrote a book chronicling her courtship and marriage to John Mills. Their marriage testimony is beautiful and poignant as it mirrors the betrothal, preparation, and marriage that we have with the Creator. The Mill’s modelled their betrothal and wedding ceremony after ancient Jewish customs to teach others about how Messiah Yeshua is the Bridegroom that will soon return for His Bride. It was filmed live and can be purchased on DVD at Doorkeeper Ministries.
Kelly mentioned her book, Chronicles of a Kingdom Courtship, in her email meant for Dr. Alewine. I knew that this couldn’t be a coincidence, so I wrote to Kelly and told her about Renewed and that I had been praying for a marriage testimony. As a new Hebrew Nation Radio (HNR) programmer, I was unaware that she was also on HNR. (It’s a very small world!) Kelly’s program is called “The Doorkeeper Hour.” It airs live every Friday at 4:00 pm PST and is re-broadcasted every Wednesday at 4:00 am PST. I’m still in awe of how Abba positions people to where He wants them, at just the right time – all for His glory!
Since this “accidental” connection, Kelly and I have continued correspondence and we were blessed to meet in person at the recent Women of Valor conference in November (2017). Kelly Ferrari Mills is a brilliant writer, author, teacher, and worship leader. I am grateful that Adonai had our paths cross so that I can share her talent with you.
Kelly has many free teachings (written, audio, and video) and worship music that you can enjoy at Doorkeeper Ministries. Besides her radio program and website, she also maintains a blog, does mission work, and takes frequent trips to Israel. Talk about a Woman of Valor! Kelly is a true builder of the House of Adonai and a minister that you need to know.
At the heart of all her service, Kelly is a worshipping prayer warrior! The name of her ministry captures this essence beautifully. She says, “I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God because a doorkeeper props open the door to the heavenly realms, helping others to gain access into the heartbeat of the Father.” (Ps. 84:10)
I like to call Kelly a “Mother in Israel.” At a time when many are arguing over minutiae, names and spellings, calendars, and conspiracies, Doorkeeper Ministries is focusing on intimacy with Yeshua and the preparation of the Bride for the Bridegroom. Her gentle and nurturing spirit is a breath of fresh air to the Body.
Here is a sampling of some of Kelly’s work. I do hope you will share this Woman of Valor with your friends.
