Looking for a speaker that will educate, inspire and bring audiences to their feet (physically or virtually!)?
Cece Jones-Davis doesn’t disappoint.
An ordained minister, artist, speaker, and advocate, Cece has dedicated her life to pointing people to the ALL-powerful and the least-powerful.
Working at the intersections of faith, art and social justice, she is passionate about seeing God’s Kingdom come in the areas of racial healing, women and girls issues, and criminal justice reform.
As a criminal justice advocate, she established the Julius Jones Coalition and is the backbone of the Justice for Julius campaign, raising awareness about Julius Jones, who has been on Oklahoma’s death row for over 20 years. Cece is a 2021 Heartland Emmy Award Nominee for her work in co-hosting Painful History, Evolving Future on the KFOR news channel, was awarded the 2019 Phil Wahl Abolitionist of the Year Award by the Oklahoma Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty (OCADP), and recieved a Special Congressional Recognition for her efforts in civil rights and social justice.
She has also served as a brand ambassador for Tampax to help reduce the stigma of menstruation, particularly among women of color. Today, she continues to fight for equitable access to proper sanitation and menstrual products, while raising awareness of how girls’ and women’s wellbeing and advancement are harmed by the lack of access. Her work in menstrual advocacy has been featured in The Huffington Post, Essence.com, Self Magazine, Yahoo! Health, Teen Vogue and many more.

What People are Saying…
“In a world full of either/or people, CeCe Jones-Davis is both/and. Bringing together the tenderness of pastoral wisdom with the fierceness of prophetic witness, CeCe’s gift is to navigate impossible intersections. She speaks the truth of the world as it is, but calls out the hope of the world as it can and must become… Nothing makes me more giddy than for people to experience CeCe do her thing for the first time—because 100% of the time, she is going to bring the house down.”
—Jonathan Martin, author, speaker, Pastor of The Table OKC
“100% of the time, she is going to bring the house down.”
“What sets Cece Jones Davis apart...is how God entrusts her.”
“What sets Cece Jones Davis apart from the many other wonderful Christ-followers ‘desiring to be used by God’ is how God entrusts her. It is truly something to behold. Her character and integrity has been tried and tested over and over, and she has been found faithful, even in great sacrifice. I have seen it with my own eyes. CeCe is entrusted with influence, authority, ministry, and public standing beyond her massive gifting, I believe, because she will not crumble under the weight. The foundation is firm. She offers her faithful ‘Yes’ to her King and Savior Jesus, to any end. This is true witness. This is something generations behind her are desperate to see and follow, and yet Christ will be the center of her story when it is told.”
—Marcy Priest Jackson, Worship Artist
