Michelle Ribiero Lilly - Founder and CEO


Michelle Ribiero Lilly was born and raised into a Christian family on the island of Trinidad & Tobago.  She accepted Christ into her life at the age of 18 and has always had a passion to work with kids and families.  Her first job working with kids/families was at Ruth’s Private Preschool Valysn Trinidad/Tobago where she got 3 1/2 years of experience working as a pre-school teacher.  She then opened her own preschool and daycare in her home town Chaguanas.  In 2006, fifteen years ago she had a spiritual life-changing encounter where she was led to serve in a ministry after she migrated to United States, New York City.  She quickly took up her space in children's ministry/prayer and worship at the local open bible Baptist church.  At present, she serves on the prayer team with C.C.W.N and also at her home church Harvest Chapel on the prayer/worship team.  Michelle is a certified Relationship couples/children counselor and spends her time praying and assisting individuals and families.  She continues her mission being led by God through Open Gates of Mercy Ministry extending kindness, love, and compassion far and wide for those who are in need.
