Cynthia Keel Ministries (CK Ministries, CKM) is a marketplace ministry in Chicago, Illinois reaching outside of the brick-and-mortar church to provide practical application of Biblical principles in everyday life. We provide a no-judgment zone where the love of Christ is paramount, revealing who we are as individuals so that we are more purposeful in living. 


Conversations with Cynthia is a platform where topics are discussed that are not always addressed in traditional church settings. We meet in coffee shops in Chicago, pay for food and refreshments for those in attendance while answering emotional, spiritual, relational, financial, personal concerns with the scripture. It’s a conversation. 


We have taken our Conversation and message to the virtual platform using social media platforms to broaden our reach to help empower and encourage as many as we can.


We also provide philanthropic support to positively impact the neighborhood and the community in inner-city high schools and recovery homes. 


We empower while being empowered! Unbelievers and those struggling with faith pursue their spiritual growth in these non-traditional settings to get tools for living the life God planned for them. For those requiring the church setting, we make recommendations so that the discipled life in Christ continues with the necessary infrastructure.


Pastor Cynthia Keel, the Servant Leader, has served as formal and informal speaker for church services, seminars, workshops, symposiums, power talks for high school students, empowerment/meditation sessions for residents in recovery homes, and much more!

She currently resides in Chicago Illinois with her husband, Thomas Keel, and a blended family of six adult children. Cynthia is the firstborn of six siblings, with a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and extended family. She also serves as an Associate Pastor at New Life Covenant Southeast, while working as a full-time administrator at the University of Chicago and building her businesses and ministry.
