Ken D Noakes

Ken Noakes

Ken oversees our Church and Training ministries.

With a business background, he went to Moore Theological College, and has since served in ministry at (Holy) Trinity Church in Adelaide, St Andrew’s Cathedral, Ministry Training & Development, and Naremburn Cammeray Anglican Churches in Sydney. He has preached, taught and trained at churches, colleges and conferences around Australia and India.

He has given up his dream of winning each of the tennis grand slams and revised his ambition to simply be a spectator one day at each! On a day off, you might find him in a book or on a bushwalk (despite his hopeless sense of direction!)

Ken is married to Naomi, and they have four children.
