Who We Are
Worship for Youth and Young Adults
One of the missions of Keep It Real Fridays is to provide a non-traditional Worship service for Youth and Young Adults. We believe that young people have a platform to worship with their God-given gift whether it's music, mime, dance, poetry, step, or other forms of artistry.
We are very inclusive of all churches, of all sizes, and all denominations.
Rev. Thomas Brackeen, Jr. is currently as of Sept 2017 is a member of the Ebenezer Baptist Church of Alexnadria, VA but serves on staff part time as the Youth and Family Pastor of the Historic Metropolitan AME Church of Washington, DC.
Rev Brackeen has worked for over 22 years with children as a Physical Education Teacher, Before and After Care Teacher, Summer Camp Director, Teen Program Director, Girls Basketball and Boys Basketball Coach (ages 8-18) and Youth/Teen/Young Adult Pastor
We believe in bringing out artists who minister with a spirit of excellence and are passionate about delivering the message of Christ to our attendees.
