Kirk strives to have his church plants "encoded with the DNA" to reach the lost with the gospel to produce new believers, make disciples and transform communities. He mobilizes partner churches to effectively assist the development of new congregations.
He has planted, or assisted in planting, more than 40 churches nationally and internationally. In Haiti, Kirk has helped plant 12 churches, build and organize two orphanages and a school. He has worked with SBC International Mission Board and other mission agency personnel to help plant churches in Greece, Brazil, St. Vincent, Panama, Japan, Costa Rica, Mexico, Canada, Philippines and Wales.
