Having served as both the pastor of a church and principal of the adjoining school in Canora, Saskatchewan, Keith and Susan moved to Winnipeg to join Church of the Rock’s pastoral staff in 1994. Keith was only the third person to have come on staff, which meant he did a little bit of everything: leading worship, running small groups, acting in dramas, preaching, teaching classes, and doing pastoral visits, to name just a few. He was always particularly energized by mission work and seeing Christ change lives all over the world.
Whether on the mission field or at home in Winnipeg, Keith loved to help others process how Christ is with them in the midst of their struggles, and he hungered to see the Holy Spirit impact every person. He was active in prophetic ministry and used his teaching gift to instruct believers in biblical knowledge as well as training for ministry.
Keith lived to see the Kingdom of God grow and expand both in Winnipeg and all across the globe.
On Thursday, May 21, 2020, Keith James Eberhard passed away at his home in Winnipeg surrounded by his family. He will be missed beyond measure and we have suffered a tremendous loss of a gifted pastor, prophet and man of God. He, however, has gone onto his reward and is rejoicing in the presence of his Lord and Saviour, Jesus.
