Timothy Dean Keesee (pronounced ka-SEE) is the director of a Christian missionary organization, Frontline Missions International in Taylors, South Carolina. Reared in Danville, Virginia, Keesee attended Averett University and graduated from Bob Jones University. He completed a doctorate in education at BJU in 1987. A veteran of the U.S. Navy, Keesee first engaged in a part-time ministry in Eastern Europe while writing textbooks for BJU Press, teaching at BJU, and traveling as a conference speaker. After the fall of the Soviet Union, Keesee spent additional time in Eastern Europe and founded Eastern European Ministries.[1]

In 2002, Keesee became full-time director of the mission organization that had been founded by the persecuted Russian independent Baptist pastor Georgi Vins in 1980.[2] Frontline Missions International works "among people in areas of war, persecution and poverty, primarily in restricted-access countries, seeking to strengthen the church, give voice to persecuted Christians, and preach and publish the Gospel."[3]

In 1990, the organization changed its name to Russian Gospel Ministries International, Inc. in part because the "original name was extremely long and difficult to remember."
