Keith Howard

State Director - Panhandle - Arrow Child and Family Ministries

Keith refers to himself as a « reformed youth pastor » who has found his calling within the orphan care movement in America. He did a brief stint working as an Investigator at Child Protective Services before moving over to Arrow, a non-profit organization that provides foster homes, adoptive homes, and emergency care services to youth in foster care. Keith currently serves as one of the State Directors for Arrow overseeing Arrow’s programs in the panhandle region of Texas (Amarillo & Lubbock offices). On a personal note, Keith and his wife, Staci, have been foster parents for the past 2 1/2 years and are closing in on the finalization of their own adoption journey of four beautiful children. They also have two biological daughters. Yes, that makes six children, which is also the reason people hope his family does not sit by them in a restaurant. Keith claims he would adopt many more, but Staci swears a 12-15 passenger van is not in her future. Keith likes to use humor, the Gospel, and real life experiences to encourage others in the midst of this journey and motivate those sitting on the sidelines.
