A Texas native, Kirk spent ten years working in the Christian publishing industry prior to transitioning into the pastoral ministry. He served as executive pastor at NorthWood Church in the DFW metroplex before moving to San Antonio to help start CrossBridge. Kirk and his wife, Debbie, have known each other since elementary school, though they didn’t get married until junior high (just kidding). They have been close friends for over 30 years and married since 1993 (Kirk was slow to recognize that friends can make great mates). They have three sweet children and enjoy spending time as a family and alone as a couple…when they can arrange it.
