Keith was raised attending a local Protestant church, but the issue of Jesus’ identity and His relevance to Keith’s life was a mystery. Through the witness of friends, he trusted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior by faith as a young adult. An immediate love for God’s Word grew as he began to read and study the Bible. A member of GCC since 1984, Keith has been involved in many aspects of GCC’s ministry. He currently serves as an elder and leads the adults’ Bible study on Wednesdays. Keith and his wife Gayle are blessed to have three adult children, who walk with Christ, and they take joy in their five grandchildren. Gayle serves in children’s ministry and as a pianist. Keith is retired after a 40-year career in manufacturing.
