About Straight Arrow Ministries

Straight Arrow Ministries is a ministiry that believes in the integrity of God's Word. 2 Timoothy 3:16-17 says, "All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equippled for every good work." We believe in the divine harmony of Scriptures with Scripture interpreting Scripture rather than releying on a particular school of thought. No doctrine is an island unto itself. It must harmonize with the entire Bible. We should be loyal to the Scriptures rather than a particular school of thought. Whether its through Seminars, Bible Studies, Sermon Outlines or Podcasts, we strive to maintain an integrity to the purity of God's Word so that those who hear are instructed in righteousness, given good sound doctrine and thoroughly equipped for every good work. Building a solid foundation in God's Word is of the utmost importance with precept upon precept and line upon line being established so that the deeper truths have a foundation from which they have been built upon.

About Kenneth L. Birks

Ken Birks is an ordained Pastor/Teacher in the Body of Christ and is a pastor and elder at The Rock of Roseville in Roseville, California where he also functions as a Bible teacher. Ken has been a part of The Rock of Roseville since its inception in 1997. Prior to coming to The Rock of Roseville, Ken was the Senior Pastor of Golden Valley Christian Center, a non-denominational, Spirit-filled church, for twelve years.

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 and write in way that helps to shape and influence the minds and hearts of God’s people everywhere.

In February 1997, the Lord led Ken and his wife Lydia to resign as Senior Pastor of Golden Valley Christian Center, which was part of the Abbott Loop Fellowship of Churches (Anchorage, AK) under the apostleship of Dick Benjamin. After pastoring for twelve years, Ken felt that he had fulfilled his time as senior pastor to his congregation, and that God wanted to do a new thing.

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 10 years, Pastor Francis Anfuso of The Rock of Roseville.

Ken is now semi-retired and does wedding officiating in the Sacramento Metropolitan area. He is still very much involved in ministry at The Rock of Roseville and continues to function as an elder. He has more recently begun a writing ministry.

Ken also has an internet ministry of “Sowing Seeds of Faith” located at which is a part of his umbrella ministry, Straight Arrow Ministries. Sowing Seeds of Faith reaches over 3,500 unique visitors a week with free Bible studies, sermon outlines, audio and video messages, podcasts, and other Bible study materials to help equip saints for the work of the ministry.

 Jim FeeneyI'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 70s.

John Dubler Sr. Pastor of Good Shepherd Bible Chapel.

John DublerKen 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.
