That You May Know Ministries was founded in March of 1996. At the time, I (Keith Ferrin) was a youth and worship pastor in Tacoma, Washington and came to the realization that – for many Christians – the Living Word of God is a phrase rather than a reality. That’s when I began to focus my preaching, teaching, writing, drama, and music into a ministry that would guide people into an active relationship with the Word and its Author. After more than fifteen years of ministering around the United States, Canada, Asia and Europe, our mission statement is still the same:
That You May Know Ministries exists to introduce Jesus to people who don’t know Him yet, and lead those who already know Him into a greater understanding of, and deeper love for Him and His Word. That You May Know Ministries seeks to do this through preaching and teaching, drama, writing, and music.
Keith Ferrin founded That You May Know Ministries and has been doing dramatic presentations of Scripture since March of 1996. Keith has presented around the United States and Europe at conferences, churches, universities, Christian schools, military bases, outreach events, and various camps and retreats. Keith graduated from Pacific Lutheran University with a degree in Psychology. He also holds a Masters of Education in Guidance and Counseling, and worked for two years as an elementary school counselor. He received dramatic training working privately with Terry Edward Moore, co-founder of the Seattle Shakespeare Festival.
Keith is the author of Falling in Love with God’s Word and Like Ice Cream and has been utilized as a speaker for retreats, conferences, outreach events, and fundraisers. His practical, humorous, and thought provoking style makes the Word come alive for audiences of all ages and backgrounds. From December of 1991 to August of 1997, Keith was a youth and worship pastor in Tacoma, Washington. Since then, That You May Know Ministries has been his primary vocation.
Keith also enjoys coaching individuals and teams in the areas of communication and public speaking. He does this through his other company – True Success Coaching, LLC.
Keith and his wife Kari live near Seattle with their three children.
