We spend a lot of time on social media, so we should be connecting with people who will allow us to grow positively. It is imperative that you are careful about what you allow to be invested in your spirit.
Here is my shortlist of people who have affected me in a great way and helped me learn a lot as a Christian.
1. Crowned In Faith
Nia-Cerise Conteh is such a powerhouse and I honestly believe that she was ordained by God to wake up the youths of our generation from our complacent lifestyle. She brings her message so strongly and with great conviction to her viewers without any shame. Nia-Cerise is a young adult who is a speaker in the UK and a student in the university currently getting her Master's Degree. Her content covers topics like evangelism, the giftings of the Holy Spirit, and how to walk boldly and serve Jesus Christ. She does not bow down to cowardice of any form and so does not water down her love for Jesus to please anyone. If there is one thing you can take from her YouTube channel, it would be to serve Jesus with EVERYTHING!!! My first three words that I think of whenever I watch her channel are CONVICTION! CONVICTION! CONVICTION! Check out her YouTube page Crowned In Faith
2. Courtney Daniella
Courtney Daniella is a beauty guru who loves makeup and hair. She owns a wig shop in the UK and speaks as well. She loves Jesus and shares her personal experiences as a Christian living in everyday life.

3. The Azonwu's
Ezekiel and Kiyanna Azonwu are such a stunning pair of human beings. They have invested their time in bringing reality to single Christians. I have learned a lot about my spirit of pride amongst other things as a single girl and I am unlearning such negative attributes. They produced a dating series called "The Whole Truth" where they brought on a Christian man and woman each episode to have a 'date'. This was done mainly for the consumption of the viewers where they bring to light the importance of having hard conversations at the beginning of dating to be sure that both people are aligned in principles before committing. Check out my previous post 37 Questions To Ask On A Date If You're A Christian In Search Of The Love You've Always Prayed For on this topic. TRUST ME, their videos are GOLD for anyone seeking to please God during their single period.
4. Ayope TV
Ayo and Ope Davies are a married couple that is dear to my heart mainly because they are Nigerian but also because they love Jesus. I am laughing as I write this. They bring me so much comedic relief yet pass on a strong message to their viewers. Their videos center around love and relationships and the lessons that they learn from each other every day like DON'T RUSH CHALLENGE. They give advice on dating and relationships in general and how to please God in the process which is most important.
5. Bold TV
Preston Perry is a poet, speaker. His channel focuses on the apologetics ministry. He has discussions with people from other religions on the theology of Christianity while giving his viewers tips on how to approach people of different religions without being offensive or insensitive.

6. Dephne Madyara
Dephne is a woman who loves Jesus and preaches intimacy with God. She has prayer videos about different situations and talks on topics focused on faith in Jesus Christ. She is also a student in fashion school and I enjoy her few videos where she talks about school and the project she is currently working on
7. Joe Solomon
Joe Solomon is a poet, podcaster, and musician. He has videos that break down the Bible's opinion and answer questions about questions in the minds of millennials. To view these videos, you may have to look at the ones posted more than four years ago. They answered a lot of questions that I had when I found my faith.
