Keith has been at Grace Point since August of 2010. He came to us from Tampa, Florida where he served as as Associate Pastor for nearly 10 years at Redeemer Presbyterian Church. He sensed God moving him to be a Lead Pastor at a church as he desired to open God's word each week, to shepherd God's people, and to see God's kingdom become visible in the surrounding community. Keith graduated from University of South Florida ("Go Bulls") with a degree in accounting and received a Masters in Divinity from Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis, Missouri. He has been married to Linda since 1999, and God has blessed them with two beautiful girls.
