In 2015, our first year the doors of the “Keep it Real Ministries Christian Center" (CC) were opened. God called us to meet every fifth Sunday of the year. Rebecca L. Page and Kaicee L. Page are first members. Sister Page agreed to perform the duties of Minster of Music. Kaciee followed, agreeing to sing praises to God as seen from the spirit of a child. Cecelia Revis (CeCe), is our first member to unite formally with (CC). Our membership is moving as the Spirit moves us to do so. Teraye Revis was the first to be baptized in October, 2016. In addition, KIRMCC began to serve the people of God (residents) of Omni Continuing Care of Detroit every third (3rd) Sunday of the month. January 5, 2020, we launched our Sunday School curriculum.
Although Reverend Oliver-Page continues to complete educational achievements, she proclaims that her greatest achievements thus far are her family. Reverend Oliver-Page Hairston is the wife of Mr. Curtis N. Hairston, and mother to two daughters, Chevelle and Rebecca, and, grandmother (Blookley) to Kaicee.
