Canaan Baptist Church is a member of the North American Baptist Conference. Shining brightly for over 130 years from atop a hill in the Prairie Chapel Community near Crawford, Texas.
It was on October 25, 1891 that Canaan was officially organized with about 47 charter members. Before the charter meeting, Rev. F.J. Gleiss was dining at the home of Engelbrecht and noted the abundance of milk and honey on the table and suggested that the church be called Canaan since the Bible refers to Canaan as the land flowing with milk and honey.
Canaan Baptist Church welcomed Jim Keever as our new Senior Pastor. Jim, along with his wife Donna, as part of the CBC family on May 16th, 2021.
Jim is a certified church planter and has spent the last 27 years planting churches in Colorado, North Dakota, Ohio, Washington State, and South Texas. He has been the pastor of youth, children, families, worship, small groups, and assimilation.
In early 2018 Jim lost his first wife to cancer, but God has blessed him with an amazing Godly woman in Donna and they were married on June 23rd, 2019. They have 5 children and 7 grandchildren combined with number 8 due in August.
Jim and Donna love to travel and are always looking forward to their next beach adventure.
