Director of Global Church Planting & Communications
Kirk has attended Harvest in Rolling Meadows since 2001 and joined the staff of Harvest as Director of Missions in 2004. Kirk met his beautiful wife, Grace, at Harvest while leading a ministry to Spanish-speaking migrant workers in Rolling Meadows. They were married in 2006 and have been committed to the ministry of raising up and sending workers into the fields that God has purposed for Harvest.
Kirk received a bachelor’s degree from Mid-America Nazarene University in business and communications and served for more than seven years as an Organizational Development Engineer for IBM Global Services, DST Systems, and ARC.
Burdened with reaching the lost and ministering cross-culturally, Kirk was led to full-time ministry and enrolled at Moody Bible Institute in 2003. God has since refined Kirk’s call to one that is focused on the church and seeing a reproducing, church-planting movement internationally through Harvest. Kirk joined Harvest Bible Fellowship in 2005 at the onset of the first church plant in Romania.
