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 his calling to be a minister of the gospel and studied at Reformed Theological Seminary in Jackson, Mississippi. Pete is the proud father of four young children and husband to his lovely wife, Nan.
