About Us


The Pinehill Staff is directed by Keith Darnell. 

Testimony: At the age of eighteen, I invited Jesus into my heart. I confessed that I was a sinner in need of a Savior. That day He saved me and changed my life forever. Two years later while working as a counselor at camp, the Lord spoke to my heart and called me to the ministry. I served ten years in camp ministry as a counselor, assistant director and directorI served as interim pastor for two years and pastor for six years; I have served in Education, student and children’s ministry for 16 years developing programs equipping volunteer leaders and staff. My heart and love is seeing lost people come to Jesus. My goal is to make disciples. I enjoy spending quality time with my family. I also enjoy camping, fishing, hunting and golfing.
