Rev. Kirk Winslow is pastor of Canvas (a Fresh Expression of the Presbyterian Church USA) in Irvine, CA. He’s a guy with a serious caffeine addiction, an unhealthy affection for studying things and late-night conversation (see “caffeine” above).
Having sworn a public oath during his theological studies to never be clergy, he was promptly thrown into the role – from which he has yet to escape. Indeed, they keep digging him in further (he just ended his term as moderator of the Presbytery of Los Ranchos). Fortunately, he has come to like it there. And he is madly in love with the Canvas project, and his wife Emily.
His main mission in life is to share as much of the amazing stuff he’s learned as he can, the most important lesson of which is that love is the name of the game. He enjoys nothing more than trying to make theology, biblical studies, church history and spiritual formation make a little more sense.
