Aaron Elmore

Lead Pastor

Aaron felt called to occupational ministry at the age of 16 through active participation in his church’s youth ministry. He earned a degree from John Brown University before serving in youth ministry at an EPC church in his home state of North Carolina. He then earned a Master of Divinity at Denver Seminary before coming to The Kirk in 2013 to serve as the Pastor of Discipleship. He now serves as our Lead Pastor, overseeing all aspects of the church. Aaron is married to Sarah, a public school teacher, and together they can’t match the joy and enthusiasm of their daughter, Aliza.

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.
