Pastoral Team

Bryan Keelin

Senior Pastor

Bryan and Lesley have been serving in ministry since before they were married and that’s been over 27 years. They met when they helped start an inner-city outreach mission church and married just over a year later. They have five children and four grandchildren. Their daughter Ebony lives in South Carolina, while Zachary, Judah, Sam and Zoe live in Louisiana.  "Our heart is to share the Love and Power of God to all those whom God gives us, and help them to share His Love and Power with others."
Bryan was called into ministry in 1994 and spent almost 2 decades pastoring in the inner-city.  He and Lesley spent a couple of years on a rural children’s ranch in northeast Missouri before landing in Lafayette in 2012.  He likes to say that he and his family carried the Vineyard genes before they ever connected to the Vineyard movement, they just didn’t know it.
Lesley has been leading worship since her days in Bible College.  She has a passion to bring others into the presence of God through intimate worship and deep relationship with Holy Spirit.  Her heart of serving others and ministry of mercy draws people into real world ministry.
Bryan’s heart is to see people come to Christ, mature in their walk with God and begin to lead others to Christ through the Word of God and power of Holy Spirit.  Bryan loves to read and to connect with people at a deeper level.  Lesley keeps her creative brain busy with artwork and crafts highlighted at her creative ministry outlet  "Milk & Honey Inspirations" Facebook page.  Bryan knows that he’s staying in South Louisiana for the people and the food, but definitely not the weather.
