Eddie Keith

Pastor

Eddie comes to Olivet from St. John's United Methodist Church where he served as the Pastor of Discipleship. Over the last 20 years, Eddie has served in many capacities, whether as a volunteer or paid, for several local churches and organizations. Eddie was called to a vocation in ministry in 2016 where he began pursuit of a Masters of Divinity from Asbury Theological Seminary. He has transitioned from a long career in theatrical production and hopes to bring that experience to the ministry.
Eddie is a avid believer in summer camp ministry and is an active participant in the ministry of Malaga Camp where he has served as a Youth Camp Director the last 15 years as well as caring for the buildings of the camp and serving on the Board of Directors.
Peter wrote that "each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God's grace in its various forms" (1 Peter 4:10). It is to His glory that we serve and it is Eddie's hope to bring those gifts in a new way of the ministry at Olivet.
