Meet Our Staff
Senior Pastor: Dr. Keith Peters
Pastor Keith and his wife Linda are the proud parents of ten children. He has Pastored four churches in three states since 1987 as well as founding the Grace Counseling Center. His educational and professional experiences have taken him down different paths than many ministers and his formal education reflects his priorities and passions.
He holds a Ph.D in counseling which reflects his desire to see people come to freedom, health, and maturity in Christ. (II Tim. 2:22-26) The church cannot be stronger than its people and families. As God’s people heal and mature, they are better equipped to become instruments of God’s healing in the lives of others. (II Cor. 1:3-6)
He also holds a Doctorate in Ministry which reflects his commitment to “perfect the saints” so that they are better equipped “for the work of the ministry” (Eph. 4:12).
His spiritual gifts of teaching and exhortation are consistent with these priorities and passions. His pulpit ministry is also a reflection of these gifts and goals and is designed to provide practical application of scriptural principles enabling personal healing and maturity leading toward relational and ministry effectiveness.
Mission Director: Dr. Bob Davis
Dr. Bob Davis is a native of Kansas who grew up in the Bethel Baptist Church in Wichita, where he surrendered to preach at fourteen years of age. He graduated from Baptist Bible College and went on to obtain his Master’s degree from Friends University. He also holds a PhD in Theology. Over the decades, Bob has served the local churches in many different capacities, including Pastor, Associate Pastor, Christian School administrator, Bible College teacher and Mission Director.
In 2009 God then led Dr. Bob and his wife Linda to join Cheney Baptist Church. During their first five months here, he was able to serve as an Interim Pastor until the church called Pastor Keith to serve. After two years of faithful attendance and lay service in the church, God opened the door for him to join the staff as Mission Director and Minister of Education.
