MEET OUR STAFF
PASTOR DAVID KEATON
I was originally born in Fort Smith, Arkansas (Insert hillbilly joke here). My freshman year I begin dating a beautiful girl named Jessica and we became high school sweethearts. We were married in June of 98 and have since had four children. Their names are Anthony, Alyssa, Aric, and Allen. We also have raised three other beautiful girls named Jackie, Tori, and Treniti. They are my wife’s sisters and have been “our girls” since they were little. Parsons has been our home for almost thirty years. My wife and I came to church here in the year of 2000. We began to work with the youth as QUEST leaders in 2001. I became the youth pastor in November of 2006 and Senior Pastor in 2021. My hope is that each person in this community comes to know the restoring and saving power of Jesus Christ. My prayer is that God would bless each of you with his love and peace.
PASTOR TRICIA POE
Children's & Worship Pastor
I grew up in the middle of Indiana and spent almost as much time at church as I did at home when I was a kid and teen! I attended Life Pacific Bible College and in May of 2005 graduated with a B.A. in Biblical Studies. In September of 2005 I moved to Parsons, Kansas to take the position of Kids Pastor. Since then I have also added Worship Pastor to my list of positions at the church. I am passionate about seeing the littlest hearts know how deeply they are loved by Jesus and ushering all ages into worshipping the King through music-knowing that worship will flow out into all other areas of our lives. It is truly an honor to serve at the Parsons Foursquare Church. I am married to an incredibly talented and creative man, Chauncey. We have 3 fun kids that we adore and love watching them grow into the amazing people that God created them to be.
I’m a hometown girl and enjoy the many blessings of small-town life. I’ve been a member of PFC since 1993 and have served in many areas of the church. In 2002 I joined the staff as the Administrative Assistant. This church is my home!
In 2008 I became a licensed Kansas realtor; it is a passion and I enjoy helping people with their home needs. I am a founding member of the Parsons Arboretum Foundation, Inc., serving for over 29 years, and have also served on the Ironhorse Museum Foundation, Inc. for the last few years.
I am very blessed with a wonderful family; two sons, a daughter, two daughters-in-love, a son-in-love, and six incredible grandkids! I am blessed to be a part of this church, serving the Lord and a wonderful church family!
I have grown up in Parsons and graduated from Kansas Connection Academy. My passion is to follow Jesus and continue my education at ORU and graduate with a bachelors in Biblical literature. I have a heart to serve and help in different areas in our church. Seeing others come to know Jesus as their savior, baptizer, healer, and soon coming king is my greatest joy. I am also training to compete in CrossFit in local and sanctioned competitions. One of my favorite things is to coach my little brother in his development of his pursuit to compete in CrossFit.
