Keane Collins believed in God but stayed a long way away from Jesus until age thirty-six, when he asked Jesus for forgiveness, cleansing, and healing from the wrongdoing, shame and hurt in his life. At that time, Keane began to become active in church life, and he eventually left his career in international business to become a pastor, with a passion for studying the Bible and teaching others what he learns about God and his will for us.
Keane had felt a dead spot in his heart for years as he knew about but did nothing to address the fact that countless children were being systematically killed by an industry sanitized and supported by our courts, financial institutions, medical profession, and all levels of government. When Keane met Don Cooper, he was stirred by Don’s Christ-centered approach to end all abortion and bring healing in Jesus to those who have had abortions.
Studying the Bible, Keane learned that God calls us not only to cease to do evil, but also to learn to do good, which includes seeking justice for the oppressed, reproving the ruthless, and defending the orphan (Isa. 1:16-17). Keane also learned that Jesus not only takes personally whatever kind things we do for the least among us, as if we had done those kind things to him, but he also takes personally whatever kindness we fail to do for the least among us (Mat 25:34-46). Keane realized the dead spot in his heart was the result of ignoring the call of God to seek justice and defend the least among us who are those children in their mothers’ wombs at risk of being killed by such a powerful industry operating right in the middle of our society.
Keane and his wife, Milena, have been married for 28 years, and they are blessed with two children.
