Keith has been a member of IBC since he moved to Ilfracombe in 1985. A farmer ’by trade’, having been born on a farm, Keith has been in the farming business all his life and absolutely loves it! Keith is married to the lovely Mary and the couple have grown up children. Keith is a passionate about Jesus and is an inspiring preacher. His enthusiasm is contagious. Keith’s favourite Bible verse (below) is one that he has taken comfort in many times. Keith gives credit to God for looking after him and his family throughout all of life’s ups and downs! This was especially true during a time when his livelihood was threatened as BSE was on the farm and there was cases of foot and mouth disease only three miles away!
”Do not be discouraged for the LORD your God is with you.” ~ Joshua 1:9
