Kirk LeachElder, Senior Pastor
Kirk grew up in Miles City, Montana. He grew up in a Christian home but did not have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ until the middle of his teen years. Kirk holds an A.A. Pillsbury Baptist Bible College, a B.A. in Biblical Studies from The Master’s College, and a Master of Divinity from The Master’s Seminary.
In 1997 he was assured of God’s call to vocational ministry. Kirk married his wife, Marlene, in 1985. Prior to becoming a pastor Kirk worked at Osco/Savon Drug from 1986 until 2003, finishing his retail career as an Operating Manager.
While attending Master’s College and Master’s Seminary Kirk ministered at Grace Community Church as deacon and leading a Bible study.
Kirk’s passion is to study and teach the Bible and serve God’s people, Acts 20:24; Colossians 1:28-29; 2 Timothy 4:1-4.
Outside the church Kirk enjoys spending time with his wife, reading, backpacking, fishing and golf. Kirk and Marlene look forward to the years ahead in being used of God in His building of the church.
