Gretchen Keskeys’ speaking and music ministry began with a prayer while raising her young children and watching the show “Intervention.” As she was hurting for these people, who were deep in addiction and self destruction, she noticed they all shared a similar background: abuse, neglect and abandonment due to parental alcoholism and drug addiction. All were looking for value, love, security, and peace. Gretchen would cry out to Jesus: “Oh if only these people knew You.” One day, her cry turned into an earnest prayer as she knew deep in her heart she could minister to hurting people with her testimony of healing through Jesus Christ. Since that time, God has used all of Gretchen’s gifts to fulfill that need.
Keskeys has recorded three full length Christian albums: Walking in the Spirit, Pure Hope and her latest, Words of Truth. God has opened up doors for her to share her testimony and music to reach and heal the hearts of the same people she initially prayed for. Currently, she is a regular worship leader with the Prison Fellowship at Folsom Women’s Facility. Gretchen is a powerful speaker and artist who continually shares her gifts at churches, women’s conferences and events. She has appeared on Christian TV including: “Babbie’s House,” CTN’s “It’s Time for Herman & Sharron,” Cornerstone Television Network’s “Real Life,” CTN’s “Bridges,” Dove Broadcasting’s “Nite Line,” WATC-TV’s “Magnify,” WREG-TV’s “Live at 9,” Atlanta Live and “Christian Music Spotlight.” Keskeys was also featured on prominent radio programs such as “Game Changers with Lisa Faulkner,” “The Long Version with Fletcher Long,” “Kingdom News” and “Debra Evans in the Morning,” “Corner Café Radio,” “Pastor to Pastor” on KFIA AM and many others.
Gretchen has a BA in Journalism from California State University Sacramento and studied for four years at the Beverly Hills Playhouse. She has worked in television news as an associate producer, news writer and assignment editor at KOVR-TV and as a talk radio producer at KSTE-AM in Sacramento. Gretchen has had acting gigs in television and commercials and is a member of the Screen Actors Guild and American Federation of Television and Radio Artists.
Gretchen has been married 20 years to her husband Randy, who she credits for encouraging and supporting her ministry. Randy is a lifelong devoted Christian who also serves in ministry. Together they homeschool their teenagers, Ian and Megan, and also their daughter Grace who is now in college. Gretchen is passionate about her relationship with Jesus. The gratitude she has for the great healing He has done in her life pours out in the songs she writes and the message she shares. Jesus has healed her mind, which was once paralyzed in fear and depression. Thirty years later, she lives her life in a deep lasting peace and joy in all her circumstances. She sees Jesus continuing to mold her life and she remains humbly in awe of all He has done.
