Pastor Keith Peri has been in ministry for over 20 years, and is currently the Senior Pastor of The Gathering Place Worship Center in Atlanta GA. He graduated from The Jimmy Swaggart Bible College in 1988 and The Assemblies of God Theological Seminary in 1992. He was ordained with the Assemblies of God in 1986 and served in various ministry positions such as Minster of Music, Youth Pastor, Associate Pastor and even a missionary in Latin America. Pastor Keith continued to minister with the Assemblies of God until he graduated from Seminary in 1992 when he moved to Kansas City Mo., to go through an Exodus Ex-Gay program where he was taught he could pray the gay away. He jokingly says, “It didn’t work, you can ask my husband.”
It was during this time in that God really began to deal with him about who he was and who God had created him to be. This created a passion in Pastor Keith’s heart to bring to light what The Bible really says about homosexuality. He has developed a teaching on this subject and has traveled to many places around the world teaching this truth. He is currently working on his book called “I am Gay, I am Christian and God loves me.” He currently resides with his husband of 18 years, Edward and their two adorable pups Barnum and Bailey.
