Dr. Keith Gomez and his wife, Kim

Dr. Keith Gomez was saved in 1973 at the Central Baptist Church in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, under the pastorate of Dr. Bob Smith. He served the church as a soul-winning layman, and in 1978, the current pastor, Dr. B.G. Buchanan, asked him to serve as Associate Pastor. The Lord called him to preach shortly thereafter, and he felt God’s leading to attend Hyles-Anderson College in Crown Point, Indiana. He graduated from there in 1982.

During his last semester in college, he accepted the pastorate of the Northwest Bible Baptist Church, a church of 31 members located in Mount Prospect, Illinois. The Lord blessed and the church grew. Unable to expand at their site in Prospect Heights, in 1994 the church purchased 16 acres of land in rural Elgin, Illinois. Described by the late Dr. Jack Hyles as a "miracle pastor with a miracle church," Dr. Gomez proceeded with plans to move the church 32 miles in 1996 from Prospect Heights to Elgin in the Northwest suburbs of Chicago! It opened the doors to its newly built 1,200-seat auditorium, Sunday School/educational wing in July and held its dedication service on August 11, 1996.

Dr. Gomez is sought after continually for counsel as a "Preacher’s Preacher." He founded Providence Baptist College, which began its first year of classes in August of 1997. In 2009 he led the church in purchasing Cedar River Baptist Camp in Letts, IA. After 10 years of operation, an opportunity came up to purchase a 517-acre campgrounds in Rochelle, IL and in 2019 Kyte River Revival Campgrounds was born.

On March 27, 2022, Dr. Gomez retired from the pastorate of Northwest Bible Baptist Church, while passing down that mantle to Pastor Phil Cavanaugh, who had been training as co-pastor under Dr. Gomez since 2016.

Dr. Gomez and his wife, Kimberly, now travel the country preaching revivals and helping pastors. He and his late wife, Carla, have three children: Jason Gomez (Ronda, daughters Kylie & Karlie, sons Jaden & Jace); Ashley Martin (John, daughter Kayla, sons John Tyler & Parker); and Joshua Gomez (deceased.)
