Brother Keith A. Rowel joined First Baptist as the Director of Music in July 2014. Rowel was born in Annapolis and has always been inspired by the music around him. He began to play the piano at age 15. His love for music and honing of his musical skills allowed him to pursue a professional career as a keyboardist, background singer and featured vocalists for several top recording artists.
Through it all, Rowel has been guided by and relied on his love for Jesus Christ. He worked with several mega churches where he served as a member of the praise and worship team and toured nationally as a vocalist and soloist for worship services, church conferences, crusades, and camp meetings. He later directed and produced a musical stage play production titled "Moses Let My People Go".
Rowel also serves as CEO of KARMusic.net, a company which provides a variety of music and entertainment components and the Invisible Note Foundation, a Houston based non-profit organzation to reach hundreds of youth to provide an alternative to negative behavior by using music as the avenue of change.
With his many years of music industry experience under his belt, Rowel has come back to his hometown to share his talents as he proclaims the gospel of Jesus Christ. His leadership of the First Baptist Music Ministry enhances our worship experience.
