Meet Our Founder


Meet Rev. Dr. Keith A. Bolton

Founder of Liberty Christian Center Intl.

Rev. Dr. Keith A. Bolton was ordained by the Holy Deliverance Pentecostal Church in California. He became pastor of the Horace Bushnell Congregational Church in November of 1989. The Lord instructed Dr. Bolton to take the church to another level of spiritual and community identity. After praying and fasting the lord had spoken. In 1996, Dr. Bolton founded Liberty Christian Center International, formerly known as Horace Bushnell Congregational Church. Dr. Bolton was the President of LIFE (Liberty International Family and Educational) Services and he served as head of Liberty International; a spiritual covering for churches and ministries across the nation that have come under his dynamic leadership.

A native of Tulsa, Oklahoma, Dr. Bolton attended public schools in Midland, TX, Atlanta, GA and Pasadena, CA. He received his Master of Divinity Degree from Fuller Seminary. In October 1985, Ebony Magazine named Dr. Bolton one of the “Fifty Future Leaders of Black America”. The following year he earned his Ph.D. in theology, becoming the first African-American to earn a Ph.D. from the School of Theology at Fuller Seminary.

Dr. Bolton is an accomplished songwriter and author, and his love for God’s Word and God’s people have been apparent throughout his career in ministry.

Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”
