Living Praise Ministries
Les and Des Keller (LesAndDes.com)founded Living Praise Ministries in 1986.
They were called into prison ministry in 1989 and since then, have traveled and ministered, leading and participating in more than 100 services per year in
various state prisons, county prisons and federal prisons where God has opened doors of opportunity.
They are both ordained ministers through the Assemblies of God International Fellowship and were commissioned Chaplains in the state of North
Carolina. Les was a professional musician and during the 60?s and 70?s performed with such artists as Cissy Houston, Tony Orlando,
The Platters, and Screamin? Jay Hawkins.
Des is a double-rape survivor with a powerful testimony of how she overcame the effects of sexual abuse and prejudice.
God has used her many times to minister to both victims and offenders.
Together, they have taken the gospel through praise, worship, preaching, and teaching to society?s hurting and outcast
in the prisons of the United States.
In addition to ministering in prisons, they have conducted worship services and worship seminars
in various states and in the countries of Guatemala and Nicaragua. At various times throughout the history of Living Praise Ministries, they have served as
interim worship leaders.
