Blessed are the people who know the joyful sound! They walk, O LORD, in the light of Your Countenance - Psalm 89:15
The following Scripture has continually been a source of encouragement and strength to me as I have sought to follow God's purpose and destiny for my life: Philippians 1:6 being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ;

Ken & Lydia Birks



Ken Birks is an ordained pastor/teacher/author in the Body of Christ. His primary function is that of Bible teacher. Ken was the Senior Pastor of Golden Valley Christian Center, a non-denominational, Spirit-filled church in Roseville Ca, for twelve years where he currently resides.

Ken attended and graduated from The Charismatic Bible College of Anchorage where he came into relationship with Apostle Dick Benjamin, who was then the Sr. Pastor of Abbott Loop Christian Center (ALCC) in Anchorage, Alaska. Dick Benjamin has been one of the strongest spiritual influences in his life. Ken would say, “Aside from The Lord Jesus Christ, the core of my spiritual being and the person I have become is a direct result from the influence and teaching I have received from Dick Benjamin for more than 25 years.” Other influences have been Bob Mumford from Life Changers and, in the past 21 years, Pastor Francis Anfuso of The Rock of Roseville, where Ken ministered as an elder and Bible teacher.

Ken was originally sent out on a church planting team from Abbott Loop Christian Center (ALCC) in August 1978 to Chico, California. Lydia moved down from Alaska to Chico a year later and they were married. While in Chico on an internship program from the Bible College in Anchorage, Ken had the opportunity to finish his AA degree in Business from Butte College in Chico. In 1981, Ken and Lydia moved to the Sacramento area to join the ALCC outreach church that he later would pastor for twelve years.

Ken is now semi-retired and does weddiing and memorial service officiating in the Sacramento Metropolitan area. He has also become an author in recent years and now focuses his teaching ministry in the writing of books and blogs. His internet ministry of "Sowing Seeds of Faith" reaches over 6,500 unique visitors a week with free Bible Study materials to help equip saints for the work of ministry. He has also recently begun writing Devotional Poetry which can be found at: straitarrow.net/devotional-poetry

Ken’s primary gift is in the area of teaching.  He teaches the word of God with passion and balance with a prophetic slant.  He has an intense desire to impart a genuine love and appreciation for God’s Word.  He is called to teach and preach God’s word in way that helps to shape and influence the minds and hearts of God’s people.  His vision and burden is to impart faith through teaching and preaching for the Body of Christ to come into the fulfillment of Ephesians 4:13 – that is for the Body of Christ to come to the unity of faith in the stature and fullness of Christ – and to impart vision for the Body of Christ to rise up and be who God has called her to be. He is currently reaching over 2000 unique visitors a day through this website.

Ken’s wife, Lydia, is a dynamic children’s minister who captures their hearts by imparting God’s Word with passion and love. She founded and directs The Rock’s yearly Vacation Bible School, Rock It! Kid’s Summer Blast and considers children’s ministry the delight and joy of her heart! She is also personal assistant to the senior pastor at The Rock of Roseville and serves on the pastoral care team.

Jim Feeney, Ph.D., Former Sr. Pastor and "Owner and Webmaster at Pentecostal Bible Studies and Free Pentecostal Sermon Central"

"I've known Pastor Ken Birks for several decades. He and I have worked in various ministerial capacities in the same family of churches. Ken is held in very high esteem among our many pastoral colleagues. He is a minister with a strong grasp of the Word of God, a broad variety of administrative skills, a heart for souls, a proven experiential familiarity with the gifts of the Holy Spirit, and an unwavering commitment to the work of the Lord. His wife Lydia is likewise a dedicated servant of God. The two of them have been an exemplary couple in the Lord's work, and I have been honored to know them and see the lasting fruits of their labors since the 1970s."


John Dubler, Sr. Pastor of Good Shepherd Bible Chapel

"Ken Birks is an extremely effective teacher of the Scriptures. He combines a healthy respect for the Word with enthusiasm and personal experiences that match what he is teaching. I strongly recommend him as a pastor, teacher and elder. Ken is a man of unimpeachable integrity and his longevity in the Body of Christ as a pastor give credence to the message of hope and encouragement that he brings to all."
