meet our pastor


Rev. Pete Whitney

In November 2016, the Kirk extended a call to their assistant of the past three years, Rev. Pete Whitney, to serve as their pastor. Pete is a native of South Florida, who during undergraduate studies at Furman University became converted to Christ through the loving ministry of a friend and listening to sermons on the Book of Galatians. A couple years later, while serving as a Field Artillery Officer in the U.S. Army, Pete started to discern a call to serve in gospel ministry. After a brief three years back in South Florida working in commercial real-estate, Pete pursued this calling, attended seminary at Reformed Theological Seminary in Jackson, Mississippi, and graduated and became ordained four years later. Pete is the proud father of three young children and husband to his lovely wife, Nan.
