Jesus and church were always part of my (Kirk's) life, growing up in Minneapolis and St. Francis, MN. I met my wife Jenny, who grew up in Milaca, MN, counseling at Grindstone Lake Bible Camp. We graduated from Crown College in 2001, got married, and moved to Grand Marais to do youth ministry. We spent three years there, then four more near Chicago for and following seminary. Though Trio is independent, I am ordained in the Christian and Missionary Alliance denomination.  I started as Lead Pastor of Trio in the summer of 2016.  We are passionate about making disciples and loving our neighbors.

Our son Joel was born summer of 2007 and our daughter Bria was born summer of 2009. We have two dogs and raise puppies. Molly, our Wheaton Terrier (light color), isLead Pastor-Molly & Willow retired and we are now breeding our mini-Bernedoodle Willow (black).  Personally, I love fishing, football, outdoor adventures, and hosting/cooking for groups of people.
