    O'Keeya began her ministry journey at the age of 6 singing Amazing Grace during a church service at a homeless shelter in which her family lived.  As an adult, she has been in the worship ministry for over 10 years, serving at Blue Mountain since October of 2013.  She and her husband, Kris, grew up in Haines, Oregon, and were married in 2003.  They now have two beautiful children, Korban (who enjoys dancing) and Alahra (who enjoys fashion and gymnastics).  O'Keeya is known to randomly burst out into song, loves to throw outrageous birthday parties, is almost always seen in heels unless she's hunting, and is most importantly a beloved child of God ever seeking to grow His Kingdom, give Him glory, and share His love.
