About Our Partners

Keith Vandegrift and Lana Bell were married in September of 2009. Their marriage blended a family of four. They are quite close and very fond of their four children: Sichia, Chris (married to Jessica) Anton, and Anna. They have one grandchild, Sloane, who is a pistol and pretty much in command. Keith has a number of degrees, mostly in literature, and a Master’s of Divinity from Fuller Theological Seminary. Lana has a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Somatic Psychology from Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado. Lana has had a number of jobs over the past two decades. Her principle job has been as a psychotherapist working with people with major mental illness. She worked first in public mental health, then at a private social services agency, then as a private practitioner. Both Keith and Lana are voracious readers who love the outdoors. They hike and camp when they can and Keith loves to fish and hunt. Lana is a veteran gardener who also spends her free time painting and making jewelry. They are looking forward to ministering in Cuba and working alongside Cuban pastors in several parishes.  

The Impact

Keith has been in local church ministry for 26 years.  Following a two-year stint as a missionary in Honduras, Central America, he returned to the U.S. and served as Director of Missions at Wabash Presbyterian Church in Auburn, Washington for nine years. For the past 16 years he has served as the Pastor for Missions at First Presbyterian Church of Boulder in Colorado. Keith also served The Outreach Foundation as a board member and as board liaison to The Antioch Partners.

The Need

The Outreach Foundation is seeking gifts totaling $10,000 for support funds.
