Rev. Mick Keville
Hello, my name is Mick Keville and I am the Senior Pastor at CrossRoads and blessed to serve in this capacity from our founding in 1998.
I am responsible to the Board of Elders for the overall ministry of the church—defining our strategy, leading our staff and serving as primary teacher of the Scriptures during services.
My ultimate guide for ministry is the Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, serving as the framework for life and ministry. We believe in the verbal inspiration and inerrancy of the original writings of the Old and New Testaments.
Our motivation can best be explained by our mission statement: “Bringing Christ’s compassion to people at the Crossroads of life.”
As the Senior Pastor, I interact with our congregation, our missionaries worldwide as well as many local religious, civic, and community organizations in the greater Central New York area.
I came to CrossRoads as branch pastor when it was launched by Eastern Hills Bible Church in 1998 after 8 years on staff there as Associate Pastor of Evangelism and Discipleship. Prior to serving at Eastern Hills I received my Master of Theology in Biblical Studies at Dallas Theological Seminary, Dallas Texas where I also worked as a systems analyst for Texas Instruments, Inc. Prior to seminary I received a BS in Analytical Management at the United States Naval Academy and a MS degree in Weapon Systems Engineering at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, CA. I served on USS Charles F. Adams, USS John Hancock, and Commander Destroyer Squadron 20 staff during ten years on active duty as a Surface Warfare Officer. My wife Betsy and I are both natives of the local area and have been married for 45 years. We have 3 grown children who are following Jesus with their spouses and have blessed our lives with eleven grandchildren.
