Celeste Gonzales holds many titles—wife, mother, daughter, preacher’s kid, sister, friend, author and pastor to name a few—but she is way more than a title. At heart, she is a lover of Jesus and His people. She’s devoted to her family, passionate about the Word of God, the first call to her friends in a time of need, a shopping buddy when her schedule allows, a cook to unexpected dinner guests, a great hugger when you just need a warm embrace and wise counsel to point you in the right direction.
Following her life’s mission, to honor God by being obedient in both the small and big things, she passionately ministers to thousands of women across the globe, seeing them come to know Jesus and unashamedly walk in freedom. Celeste comes alive when sharing the gospel to God’s girls, whether in the states, on the mission field, in prisons or one on one over tea or dinner. With over a decade of full-time ministry experience, Celeste is an accomplished communicator, conference director and Women’s Pastor. She combines her life experience and gut-wrenching vulnerability with epic Bible tales and humorous wit to spur you on to your God-call. She currently serves on the pastoral team at Celebration Church, in Austin, Texas, where she resides. Celeste is happiest when she’s with her husband, Daniel of nineteen years, and their three kiddos: Syrena, Luke and Kya.
