Keith is the Founder and President of On The Go Ministries, an international evangelistic outreach ministry that ministers across the street and around the world.

Keith also created GoCamp, an evangelistic youth camp geared toward teaching youth new and fresh ways to minister to their families, friends, and communities.

Keith began his walk with the Lord at the age of fourteen. Little did he know that a year later God would call him again...this time He would call Keith into full-time Christian service. The call God placed and entrusted on Keith's life was defined and focused from the beginning; he would be an evangelist. He would preach the message of Christ to people all over the world.
At age 15, Keith took the first major step toward fulfilling God's will and his desire to be an evangelist. Keith began preaching in revivals and retreats in churches across the United States. Keith was given the opportunity and unique privilege of being the youngest preacher to ever preach on the radio in Nashville, Tennessee. Over the next twelve years he directed evangelistic teams as they ministered across the country.
In 1986, Keith launched On The Go Ministries. On The Go is an international evangelistic outreach ministry that ministers across the street and around the world. Since On The Go began, Keith has preached in over 40 countries around the world while still ministering here in the United States. He has preached in crusades, rallies, retreats, revivals, seminars, and conferences held worldwide. Keith has also written literature on topics such as evangelism, church growth, missions, youth, and family.
In 1990, Keith developed GoTeams. These are groups of people who travel overseas and share the Gospel with others. They also travel in the United States participating in various ministry events. In 1992, Keith created GoCamp, which is a Christian camp developed to inspire Christian youth and adults in how to influence their families, friends, and communities for Christ.
In 1993, Keith started On The Go's Outreach Training School. This school aims to teach people of all ages new and fresh ministry outreach methods that can be used to impact the world for Christ. Keith serves as the Dean of the Outreach Training School. The school is composed of seventy independent classes on various ministry topics. Some of these classes include Basic Evangelism, Tough Evangelism, Prayer in Evangelism, Worldwide Ministry, Inner City Ministry, Arts In Evangelism, and Neighborhood Outreach.
Keith continues to carry out the call given to him at age fifteen. He resides in Springfield, Tennessee, with his wife Joan. They have one son, Keith, and daughter inlaw, Megan.
