Kieth Noll served as interim ministerial director during the summer months at the Kentucky-Tennessee Conference, and was recently named ministerial director. The decision to transition Noll to permanent status was voted by the executive committee on the recommendation of the administration.
Noll began his denominational employment in 1979, serving the Kansas Conference as a literature evangelist (LE). He also served in that capacity in the Kansas-Nebraska and Chesapeake conferences. From 1983 to 1988, he served as the assistant publishing director in the Illinois, Michigan, and Kansas-Nebraska conferences. He became a pastor in 1988, and was ordained on June 5, 1993. He served Iowa-Missouri, Kentucky-Tennessee, Washington, and Oklahoma conferences before returning to Kentucky-Tennessee in 2012 as evangelist/trainer for the Conference.
Steve Haley, president of the Kentucky-Tennessee Conference, commented, “I have appreciated Kieth’s commitment to the support of our pastors, his passion for evangelism, and his broad range of skills arising from long tenured service in ministry to God’s Church. The Conference, pastors, churches, and the advancement of the mission of the Adventist Church in our Conference will continue to flourish under his leadership.”
Kieth and Marjie Noll have three adult daughters, Jefflynn, Amanda, and Shannon, and five grandchildren.
