Serving in Europe
Kirk is ICF ACC certified, as well as a Level 3 AGPC coach with AG Coaching. In addition, he has a CBC+ certification with the DISC personality assessment.
Kirk feels a deep desire and burden to use his coaching skills and DISC certification to help plant the Church in Europe, whether that is through the discipleship and training of leaders within a new church plant, or supporting missionary and national church planters as they strategize and implement the dreams that God has placed in their hearts.
Karla excels at mentoring, equipping and training leaders. She has over 20 years of experience in Russia raising up nationals to lead both church and parachurch ministries. Her heart is to one day walk alongside new global workers from the Russian speaking world.
Kirk and Karla are currently praying and pursuing being part of a church planting team in Europe.
