Pastor Keith Ledford is the ninth Senior Pastor in Faith’s 60 years and has been our pastor since Christmas Eve 2017. He has been in vocational ministry since 1999, including time shepherding both youth and seniors. He spent most of his childhood in Florida and calls Tampa his hometown. Pastor Keith met his wife, Kathryn, while working as a counselor at a Christian summer camp. They have been married since 2001 and have four children. Pastor Keith received his B.A. from the University of North Carolina and a Master of Divinity from Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis, MO.
In his free time, Pastor Keith enjoys rooting on his favorite teams and playing sports of all kinds. He especially loves playing tennis and ultimate frisbee. He also enjoys attending his children’s extra-curricular activities. His favorite books in Scripture are Isaiah and Romans, but he’s fond of the other 64 as well. He has a heart for the hurting and especially enjoys being involved in prison ministry.
Keith says, “What most excites me about our church is the close-knit sense of community that we share through fellowship, Bible study and ministering to our community.”
One of his life verses is Micah 6:8 – “He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God.”
