Pastor – Keith Ledford

Pastor Keith Ledford is the ninth Senior Pastor in Faith's 60 years and has been our pastor since Christmas Eve 2017.  He has been in vocational ministry since 1999, including time shepherding both youth and seniors.  He spent most of his childhood in Florida and calls Tampa his hometown.  Pastor Keith met his wife Kathryn while working as a counselor at a Christian summer camp.  They have been married since 2001 and have four children.  Pastor Keith received his B.A. from the University of North Carolina and a Master of Divinity from Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis, MO.

In his free time, Pastor Keith enjoys rooting on his favorite teams and playing sports of all kinds.  He especially loves playing tennis.  His favorite books in Scripture are Isaiah and Romans, but he's fond of the other 64 as well.  He has a heart for the hurting.

One of his life verses is Micah 6:8 – “He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God.”  

Pastor of Student Ministries - Joe Bradshaw

Joe Bradshaw was born for the first time a long time ago to wonderful parents and was raised on a family dairy farm in the North West corner of Pennsylvania. The summer after his senior year of high school he attended a summer camp run by the Christian and Missionary Alliance and on July 21, 1982 the Holy Spirit opened Joe's eyes to the truth about Christ and he was born a second time. Just six short weeks later he was enrolled as a freshman at Nyack College where he went on to earn a BA in Psychology. In the fall of that same year he began working with young people and has been working with young people ever since. He went on to earn a degree in secondary mathematics as well as a Masters of Education from Allegheny College and a Ph.D. in Theology from Trinity Theological Seminary.

The only things Joe loves more than serving as a youth pastor, while also teaching math and coaching various sports, are Jesus and his family. Any time you want some chocolate chip cookies just swing by his place. It only takes him about 5 minutes to whip up a batch.
