Kirt brings over thirty-five years of ministry experience to the leadership team at NCC. Of his ministry he writes, "My faith is passionate and real. Since I was a kid in Young Life I've been alert to opportunities to share the good news with others. It was and is a simple sense of fullness of life in Jesus Christ. Therefore my theology is Christ-centered, biblical, and relational. God meets us in ordinary circumstances and actual experience and the Christian faith is about trusting God in and through it all. The church should be a place where authentic fellowship will eclipse the need to posture and pretend, where open inquiry ferments our personal growth, and where the presence of God is known."
We strive to embrace those whom God loves--for the Spirit of Christ has drawn us all, that we might grow into a love for him who first loved us.
Kirt played varsity basketball at UCSB, went on to Princeton Seminary, earned his doctorate from Fuller Seminary, and is ordained in the Evangelical Covenant Church.
He is the disgustingly proud father of three launched and married children, and grandfather of four perfect grand kids: Owen, Ellery, Emmeline, and Christopher.
