I have been a lover of gospel music since I was a child.
I accepted Christ as my Savior in August of 1961 at the age of 10. My parents Paul and Lucille Keener taught us to love God. We also learned to sing together in harmony on the many trips we would take each year to visit family in Nebraska.
I have been in Evangelistic ministry since I was twenty, even in high school I led youth groups in Kirkland, WA and Portland, OR. I love preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
I am now in my 60's and still love to preach the Gospel and lead God's people into the presence of God. I am a worshiper of Jesus Christ our Lord.
In 1996 God brought my wife Joanie into my life, she is a true gift of God. Her love for God and wisdom is what keeps me focused on the 'Prize' of the High Calling of God in Christ Jesus. She is a prayer warrior and loves to worship the King of kings.
Since 2012 I have been Minister of Music at Lebanon First Assembly of God. About a year ago the church released a CD featuring the music I love. 'It was all because of Calvary' released April 2018, and was recorded at the studio of Gordon Kuryluk in Junction City, Oregon.
