About Keith Craft
The courtship between Keith & Sheila Craft began in 1975, when Keith moved from Dallas, Texas to Slidell, Louisiana. It continued through their college graduation from Evangel University in 1982, and they were married in 1983. He and Sheila have three children, Joshua & Keela who both serve on the pastoral team of ELC, and Whitney; who serves on the worship team at ELC.
Pastor Keith Craft is much more than just a “pastor.” Before founding Elevate Life Church, Keith traveled 48 weeks a year, for almost twenty years as a motivational speaker and leadership strategist; and he continues to travel as much as his schedule allows. He has shared the stage, and spoken alongside former world leaders like Bill Clinton, George Bush Sr., Margaret Thatcher, Mikhail Gorbachev, and former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani. Along with ELC, Keith is the President of Keith Craft Leadership Shapers, a non-profit corporation dedicated to helping people increase their leadership capacity and maximize their personal and professional lives. He is also the founder of Leadershipology, a daily live internet quote service. No matter what the method is, Pastor Keith’s ultimate vision is to be a leader who motivates people to reach their God-given potential.
