Keith is a husband, father, pastor, and lover of people. Born in Ft. Chaffee, Arkansas to a US Army family, Keith and his family traveled the world before settling down in southern Arizona. Keith received an ROTC scholarship to the University of Arizona where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Marketing and Business. He then entered pilot training in the US Air Force where he met his wife Leisa; they have been married 37 years. Together they have four children; Karissa 35, Denielle 34, Daniel 31, and Whitney 29. They also have two grandchildren. Keith once again traveled the world and gained life experience in different cultures and churches and earned a Master’s degree in Economics Management from the University of Oklahoma.
After serving his country for 17 years, Keith felt called into ministry. At first Keith pursued his degree in Christian counseling, but soon ended up ministering at his first church. God had big plans for Keith and knew he had a special desire to minister to other shepherds. After 22 years of ministry, God has now called Keith to serve these shepherds. Keith’s favorite verse is Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Not a day goes by that Keith doesn’t pull from that strength.
