fullsizerender-3Professional Career:

Cierra Kemp is a Senior Logistics Project Manager at NDI Engineering Company in support of the Department of the Navy; in Philadelphia, PA.  Cierra graduated high school in Thomasville, Georgia and in 2005 joined the United States Marine Corps. While serving 8 years in the Marine Corps, Cierra pursued a Bachelor’s of Science in Business Administration at the University of Phoenix, graduating in 2015.

Christian Relationship:

Cierra was raised  Methodist, attending one of the oldest Churches in Boston Georgia; Saint. James C.M.E.  She believed at an early age, loving God with the enthusiasm of a child! However, as she grew into adulthood, she began to question the validity of her faith. During that time she found herself in situations where she was required to rely on the God she so un-apologetically dismissed.  These trials and tribulations tested and strengthened her faith in Christ.  Granting her the unmerited favor and salvation to renew her mind and allow Christ to take over every aspect of her life. She is currently a member of Dare To Imagine Church in Philadelphia, PA under the leading of Pastor Kevin Johnson.

Cierra is constantly seeking new ways to enrich and connect women and men in the areas of Christian relationship, emotional health, and spiritual development with Christ as the lead. In 2017 Cierra, with the leading of the Holy Spirit, started The Philly Christian!

As I searched on google looking for Christian meetup’s and event’s, I realized that there was hardly anything that quickly directed me to what I needed as a Christian.  Where do I go to get the latest on christian events in the city? Where do I find cool people who are Saved in Christ and motivating the culture?

Philadelphia is a melting pot of religions and cultural diversity, however, it is strikingly hard to find, even in this advanced age of technology, a place for Christians to get the scoop on what’s going on in the city!

The Philly Christian changes the way we find out what’s going on in our city and around the world by covering the people you want to know, the places you need to visit, and what’s happening on the Christian scene in the city of brotherly love!

Cierra is also the Founder of Live Live Naked, Author of  Becoming a Good Thing; The Poetry of Forgiveness, Polish Me Until God is All You See (stage play), and holds over 40 music, poetic, and theatrical copyrights.

Leisure:

During her leisure, Cierra pursued a career as a recording artist and was the opening act for artists like: Chris Brown, Rick Ross, Lil Wayne, Drake, Wiz Khalifa, Nicki Minaj, Diddy Dirty Money, Keri Hilson, Marsha Ambrosia, 50 Cent and G-Unit, Ciara, The Yin Yang Twins, and Ne-Yo, to name a few.  Cierra has also headlined numerous shows in Japan, Philadelphia, and Atlanta.  As an actress Cierra has stared in numerous stage plays and underground films.

I’m very artistic and a free spirit! I always thought I would be a singer, rapper, or work in some form of the entertainment industry.  Although I love Christ, five years ago I would have never imagined this would be my calling….Like the old folk say, “Tell God what you gonna do with your life, and watch him laugh!”  I’ve come to the understanding with the constant teaching and humbling of the Holy Spirit working in me, that without Christ life and all it’s pursuit is vanity; so I constantly pray for God’s Will in my life…

Mark 8: 36 For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?
