E-mail Ken & Lori Noles

Pastor Ken and Sis. Lori Noles, both Air Force veterans, first came to Panama City when they were stationed at Tyndall Air Force Base as active duty Airmen. After serving other assignments and retiring from the military, they returned to Panama City with their children, Destiny and Elijah, in 2011 when God called them to start a church. They have served and led faithfully since Apostolic Gateway opened its doors, and we continue to see God do incredible things through their ministry. We love and appreciate their passion for God and people!

Pastor Noles grew up in Tampa, FL and has spent much of his life moving from place to place. Throughout his life he has racked up lots of ministry experience through youth ministry, Sunday school, and Pastoring. When he is not working or serving our congregation, he enjoys fishing and a good cup of coffee. Our Pastor loves serving others and is very excited about the spiritual growth that is happening at Apostolic Gateway!

Sis. Noles grew up in Pennsylvania. She faithfully continues to serve our congregation in many ministries including Children’s Church, music, bookkeeping, and everything in between. In her free time, Sis Noles enjoys a relaxing walk on the beach. Our resident “superwoman” loves serving Jesus and is very excited about the continued growth that we have seen at Apostolic Gateway!

Destiny was born in Alaska and adores animals. She serves on the puppet team, outreach team, and wherever else she can lend a hand.
