Meet Our Lead Pastor

KEITH BURKHART
Motorcycle enthusiast, avid outdoorsman, and energetic father of 10, Pastor Keith has big dreams. As a young man, Keith began ministry at FS before joining the Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma, where he served as Family and Men’s Ministry Specialist for 10 years. Throughout the  years, God increased his vision for developing spiritually strong men and families who impact their communities for the Kingdom of God.
 
Keith led the Oklahoma Faith Riders motorcycle ministry, engaging hundreds of riders from churches across Oklahoma. Through his leadership of the Rewired Men’s Conference, men across the United States have discovered new ways to live out their faith. In May 2018, Keith became the Director of Falls Creek and Cross Timbers Baptist Camps. But in October 2018, Keith responded to God’s call to return to FSBC, leading with genuine relationships, audacious faith, and a passionate desire to help people come into and maintain a relationship with Jesus. “Has there ever been a more important time to give people a credible offer of the Gospel and a place to grow and be loved in our city? Father, may it be so!”   Keith is the author of Advanced Men’s Ministry Training: A manual for Building Your Men’s Ministry, used by churches throughout the United States. He has contributed to various articles related to men, marriage, and family for Lifeway Christian Sources and serves on various boards and advisory committees related to men’s ministry. Keith has experience as a small business owner and served in the United States Army Reserves for 21 years. He has been married to his precious wife Jeanette for 40 years and is the proud father of 10 children and 13 grandchildren.
