Lane Keister

Lane started his course of studies at Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary in August of 2017. Prior to this, he graduated from St. Olaf College (Northfield, MN) in 2000 with a B.Mus. in piano performance, and then from Westminster Theological Seminary in 2004 with an M.Div.

Lane has been a pastor since 2005, serving in the PCA until 2017, and since then in the OPC. At PRTS, he is in the Biblical Studies area, focusing his attention on Ezekiel, specifically the title God uses to address him, “son of man.”

He has been married to his wife Sarah since 2001, and they have five children: three girls and two boys.

“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”
