Local Keith Pace, born and raised in central Georgia but calling Northwest Florida home since 1999, will speak at the Guardians Men’s Ministry meeting from 5:30-8:30 p.m. June 8 at Destin United Methodist Church. A barbecue dinner will be served for $7.

Pace and his wife Jennifer have been married for 17 years and have two daughters. His favorite role is being a husband and father to his family. He has spent 21 years in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry serving patients in various roles, from the corporate office, to training, and to sales and management. He currently serves cancer patients in the role of senior oncology specialist and travels to cancer centers throughout Florida, Alabama, and Georgia.

His passion is to grow in his identity as a son of God and help others do the same. As a result of this passion, Pace serves on the board of several non-profits, Junto Tribe (men’s ministry), Waves (youth and college age girls), Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Pier 49 (church plant serving the poor in Rio, Brazil) and Business Empowered (marketplace ministry). He is also involved in prayer and youth ministry at his local church.

In 2017, Pace was involved in the early stages of a youth worship movement called House Church. He and his wife serve as spiritual parents in this movement today. It was his passion for discipleship that led him to start a Saturday morning Bible study, called Firestarters, for youth in his neighborhood. He has helped young believers discover their true identity as sons and daughters of God and is equipping and training them in their God-given calling.
