Pastor Keith Hairston was born in Washington, DC and grew up in Maryland and Bluefield, WV. In the early 1990s, God began working in a “street tough” young man’s life in a powerful way beginning with a move to Roanoke. He joined the Garden of Prayer #6 under the tutelage of the late Bishop Malverse Simpson. His life began to radically change. He married his school-girl crush, Leading Lady Stephanie Hairston, and they have been inseparable for the last 28 years. They have four beautiful daughters: twins, Samone and Seleste, Briann, and Kaitlin.

He became a licensed minister in 1996 and an ordained Elder in 2001. After years of faithful service as a Joshua to Bishop Simpson, Elder Keith branched out to become one of Bishop Simpson’s Covenant pastors. God led him to establish The Promise Church in 2015 where he served as senior pastor for six years. 

In 2016, Pastor Keith Hairston joined the Communion of Covenant Ministries International (CCMI) under Bishop Fred Brown. Bishop Brown has been an avid supporter of The Promise Church and divine covenant partner. Bishop Simpson instructed Pastor Hairston to remain connected to him. Bishop Brown’s love and care extend beyond the six years of Pastor Keith’s ministries
