BUSINESS & FACILITY MANAGER
Kirk and his wife, Teresa, are longtime members of Valley Christian Church. Kirk served as a church elder for many years before joining our ministry staff. In addition to his part-time work at Valley, Kirk operates his own video production business. If he can ever find a spare moment to get away for some fun, you're likely to find him enjoying the outdoors and if he's really having a good day, he'll probably be fly fishing.
