Dan Bair

Discipleship Pastor

As a missionary, Dan completed his Master of Divinity and a Doctor of Ministry degree through Columbia Biblical Seminary in South Carolina. After about 14 years on the mission field, Dan, Leda, and their daughter, Gabby, returned to the States and God led them to transition into pastoral ministry here at The Kirk. That was in 2004 and since then he has coordinated the missions program, taught Bible studies and Sunday school classes, preached in our contemporary service for several years , and now oversees all aspects of adult discipleship.
