Bill Keller is the president of Bill Keller Ministries which owns LivePrayer.com. Bill was raised in the United Methodist Church and asked Jesus Christ into his heart at age 12, feeling a call of God into the ministry at a young age. Bill's life became sidetracked while attending Ohio State when he started a small business that became very successful. Going into the ministry soon was not in the plan as Bill spent the next 11 years running from God.
God got Bill's attention in 1989 when he became involved in insider trading of the stock market, was convicted, lost everything, and spent the next 2 1/2 years in Federal Prison. Shortly after going into prison, Bill rededicated his life to the Lord, received an undergraduate degree in biblical studies from Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia, and was discipled by two precious charismatic couples. Upon his release in August of 1992, Bill went into full time ministry, holding evangelistic meetings in churches all over the country.
In June 1993 Bill Keller Ministries was incorporated in Illinois, a Board of Directors was appointed to oversee the ministry operations, and received non-profit status from the IRS as a 501(c)(3) organization. in addition to Bill's preaching ministry, in 1995 the BK Media division was formed to produce and syndicate television programming for Christian television stations nationwide. In August of 1999, the ministry's internet site Liveprayer.Com was launched. In March of 2003, the LivePrayer Television Program on secular stations was launched.
Bill oversees the daily operations of Bill Keller Ministries, the BK Media division, and the LivePrayer.com internet operations under the guidance of the Board of Directors. Bill has his ministry credentials through an independent group of ministers, Spiritual Life Concepts in Largo, Florida, and is a member of a non-denominational church in Palm Harbor Florida. Bill is married, and the couple have no children.
