Throughout his adolescence, Keith was involved with Homestead Park UMC and transferred to Christ UMC- in Bethel Park while a teenager. Keith re-awoken to God’s love while working at Jumonville for a six-year period and sensed a God’s call to ordained ministry while dean of HOPE Camp working with at-risk youth.
