Keith Mullenix

Worship Leader


Keith began bi-vocationally leading worship at MPBC around 1980, while pursuing a degree in Computer Science at the University of Alabama. He has worked in the Information Systems field until very recently. Keith's music education consists of a few months of piano in high school and many years of learning by experience in solo, ensemble, and choir. But he says more valuable than these has been his marriage of over 30 years to his wife Deborah, a music education major, piano teacher, constant accompanist, partner and the mother of their 3 wonderful children, Daniel, Lauren, and Sarah Rebekah. They were recently blessed with their first grandchild, Davis, born to Daniel and his wife Kim. Keith says in his case, God definitely did not call the equipped but instead is equipping the called as he has tried to make himself available in His service. For Keith, MPBC has been a great place in which to grow up physically and spiritually because this church is truly a family of believers sharing each other’s burdens and working together in ministry for the cause of Christ. He and his family feel very blessed to have been associated with MPBC through the years.
