Apostle Keith is the founder and Bishop of Refuge In Kentucky Church in Louisville, Kentucky.

Like his pastor, the late Chief Apostle William L. Bonner, he is a teacher, visionary, builder, and preacher.

In additional to his roles as local pastor, and regional apostle, he also servers the International Brotherhood Council (IBC) as the Apostle to the Men.


The Church of Our Lord Jesus Christ of the Apostolic Faith, Inc. was established by Robert C. Lawson, D.D., LL.D. in 1919 in Columbus, Ohio.

Lawson's ministry grew from a house church in the basement of Edward Anderson's home to an international ministry through ecstatic preaching, tent revivals, missionary work.

We teach traditional biblical morality and administration, we believe the fruit and the gifts of the Spirit are active, and we are Oneness Pentecostal.

Region V's Territory

Region 5 is one of the twelve regions of COOLJC, each headed by a different apostle board member.

It spans across West Virginia, western Virginia, North Carolina, and the Dominican Republic.

It is also home to the COOLJC IBC, an auxiliary dedicated to helping all males realize their God given, talents gifts, and abilities.


The region thrives because of the spiritual and professional leadership of it's diocese bishops.

We are committed to godly spiritual, physical, financial, and mental health and maturity, as well as the development and maturation of godly men.

We welcome dialogue with both churches and individuals interested in joining our community.  See our Contact page for more information.
