Rev. Troy Keaton
Troy Keaton, along with his eight siblings, was born and raised in a pastor’s/ bible-school president’s home. After graduating from bible-college he and his wife, Janel, pastored for several years in the inner-city of Dayton Ohio, working largely with low income and troubled youth and impacting many of them for Christ. From Dayton the Keaton’s pastored for five years in Tennessee before they took on a brand new church planting challenge in Moneta, VA. Today, ten years after its birth, Eastlake Community Church is a wonderfully blessed and growing ministry where many souls have found the Lord and dozens “deployed” into the harvest field.
Pastor Troy is a visionary leader who invests much of his life, not only in preaching and teaching, but in developing spiritual leaders and in training the next generation of church planters. Troy and Janel have four children and one grandchild. He loves spending time with his family. His hobbies are home improvement, golfing and fishing.
