Meet Chesley “N.I.F.T.Y.” Christian. To be clear; ‘N.I.F.T.Y.’ stands for “Nothing’s Impossible for The Youth”, and yes, Christian is his real last name.
Equal parts hip hop artist, youth minister and business motivational speaker, N.I.F.T.Y. combines the best skills of each role to create a magnetic, yet down-to-earth energy, which never fails to inspire – whether performing before a hip hop infused crowd, driving home a message during a spirit-led sermon or delivering a speech to a room full of impressionable students.
N.I.F.T.Y. – affectionately known in industry circles as “Nif” – has built a solid background in Christian music, evident from his extensive tours across Canada and the US, along with multiple nominations and awards bestowed by prominent organizations such as GMA Canada. Any show which features Nif as a headliner showcases an artist with the ability to connect with every age and ethnic group.
His aim is not simply to entertain, but to impact lives by adding value with his engaging, practical approach.
With over a decade of public speaking at various schools, churches and auditoriums across the country, N.I.F.T.Y focuses on business/career motivation, academic achievement and relationships, and is fiercely passionate about giving young Christians practical advice about their walk with Christ.
As a published author, his first book, “A Proud Christian” was well received by readers throughout North America with over 5,000 downloads to date and counting.

My name is Youngdo and I’m a pastor at Bethel Toronto. One year our church decided to do a concert fundraiser for our mission trip and had asked NIFTY to come and perform. He came and blew them away. Many had not seen a hip-hop show before and he showed them a fun time. But not only that, the audience also got to see his heart for Christ and his work. It was both entertaining and edifying. He was generous and built good relationships with my church group, encouraging them in life and mission. We certainly benefited from NIFTY and his heart for ministry. – Pastor Youngdo Kang
