Kirk is from Newcastle Australia and has been in full time ministry since 1999. From 1999-2008 he served as Youth Pastor and Associate Pastor. His roles in this time included leading young generation groups: kids, youth and young adults. He also ran Youth Alive for the Newcastle region, working with over 30 churches and seeing events of thousands of young people attending and being saved. Kirk and Tracee with a team pioneered a new campus of the church and saw it grow and it is still going today. Kirk also served as Sports Chaplain to the Newcastle Knights Rugby League team.
In 2008 Kirk and Tracee felt God call them to the United Kingdom and Europe. Kirk’s father was born in Scotland, so it was like God was sending him back to the land of his fathers. Through a few God orchestrated contacts, Kirk was connected with Kings Christian Centre in Birmingham. In 2009 Kirk and Tracee and their two children Josiah and Ruby, sold everything they owned, said goodbye to their families to follow the call of God and become the new pastors of the church in Birmingham. Since arriving they have repurposed the church that was pioneered in 1940, rebranding to Connect Church and moving their services to St Andrews football stadium in 2014. Kirk became the club chaplain of Birmingham City football club in 2013. In 2017 the church started construction on a brand new 500 seat church building on a site right next door to the stadium. Kirk has always been a part of the Assemblies of God in Australia and then the UK and served four years as zone leader in the Central area. Kirk sees himself as a missionary to the United Kingdom and Europe and has ministered in twenty-one nations. His passion is to see every believer mobilised into mission.
Kirk loves living in England and especially sports. When Australia play England he always wins as he is a dual citizen. One of his favourite times of the week is when the music for Match of the Day starts playing on a Sunday night.
