Keith was born and raised in Marion, and was saved at a vacation Bible school at the age of 8. Even as a child he knew he was a sinner and in need of a Savior and he asked Jesus to come into his heart. Keith has served our church longer than any other elder. In fact, he helped to put together Central Baptist Church’s first constitution and he and his wife, Nancy, are charter members. Due to his long history with CBC, Keith has served in a variety of ways. He served as a deacon from 1986 until 2014 when he was ordained as an elder. He is a gifted Bible teacher and is currently serving as an adult EquipCentral teacher along with his wife. Keith enjoys playing senior softball.
