Kirk was raised and baptized at Cambrian Park Baptist Church. Growing up, Kirk heard the Scriptures taught and preached, and he professed faith in Christ at a young age. When he was in college, he started pursuing God through His Word with greater seriousness. Kirk’s desires changed from other career interests to serving in full-time ministry. He completed his Bachelors degree in Small Business Administration from Northern Arizona University, and worked at Chase bank, Charles Schwab, and Fidelity Investments before becoming a pastor at CPBC in 2020. He is almost finished with his Master of Divinity degree through The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky. He and his wife Sarah have two daughters, Abigail and Elizabeth.
