Reverend Keith McIntosh Installed as New Pastor at Swift Creek Missionary Baptist Church in Macon, Georgia

The Reverend Keith H. McIntosh was installed as Pastor of Swift Creek Missionary Baptist Church, located at 4354 Jeffersonville Road in Macon, Georgia on Sunday, August 18, 2013 at 3pm. Guest speaker for the event was Pastor Dennis Harden of New Hope Baptist Church in Perry, Georgia. Rev. McIntosh preached his first sermon at Swift Creek on the first Sunday in July of 2013.

Born and raised in Warner Robins, Georgia, Rev. McIntosh graduated from Warner Robins High School in 1989. He continued his education at Andersonville Theological Seminary and is currently pursuing his Master’s degree in Divinity there.

While still a very young man, McIntosh acknowledged his call to the ministry by preaching his first sermon at the tender age of ten years on the 1st Sunday in February of 1981 at Canaan Missionary Baptist Church, located in Columbus, Georgia and pastored by the Reverend James Harold Carter. For the next four years, the gifted and anointed McIntosh was highly sought as an evangelist and revivalist.

From 1985-1987, Rev. McIntosh served as Youth Minister at North Bethlehem Missionary Baptist Church in Warner Robins, Georgia under the leadership of Pastor Floyd Clarington, where he continued his evangelical ministry and conducted several revivals. From 1987-1990, he served as Youth Minister at Piney Grove Missionary Baptist Church in Kathleen, Georgia under the leadership of Pastor Roy C. Jeffcoat.

In October of 1990, Rev. McIntosh enlisted in the United States Army where he served 13 months in Korea before being assigned to Fort Stewart in Liberty County, Georgia. While at Fort Stewart, Rev. McIntosh met the lovely Annalicia Dawson and the two were wed on December 17, 1994, joined in Holy Matrimony by his father, the Rev. John L. McIntosh. Rev. McIntosh was then transferred to Hanau, Germany where he served for the next four years and to Heidelberg, Germany, where the couple remained an additional four years. The McIntosh family returned stateside where Rev. McIntosh served at Fort Bragg, NC for two years, Robins Air Force Base in Warner Robins for two and a half years and finally, to Fort Leonard Wood in Missouri before retiring in January of 2013 after serving his country for 23 years.

While serving his country, Rev. McIntosh also served God faithfully. He attended Camp Casey Chapel Gospel Service while in Korea and commuted to Piney Grove Missionary Baptist Church in Kathleen, Georgia while at Fort Stewart. From February 1995 until December 1997, Rev. McIntosh served as Associate Minister at the Mt. Zion Missionary Baptist Church in Hinesville, Georgia under the leadership of Pastor Mickey L. Jackson, and while there, he received his Pastoral Counseling Certification from the Sarasota Academy for Christian Counseling. From 1997-1998, Rev. McIntosh served as associate minister at the Pioneer Gospel Service in Hanau. In January of 1998, he stepped out on faith and established the New Jerusalem Missionary Baptist Church in Germany, where he served as Senior Pastor until the summer of 2007. While still in Germany, Rev. McIntosh was elected Vice Moderator of the National Baptist Association of Germany.

In 2007, the McIntosh family returned to the United States and Rev. McIntosh began jumping out of airplanes once again from Fort Bragg. The family attended True Vine Ministries until they came back home to middle Georgia in August of 2009. While in Warner Robins, they attended New Hope Baptist Church in Perry, Georgia. The couple has two children, Emmanuel Jedidiah and Kelia Isabella.
