Trisha and I got married in 1998 and have two kids, Lucia and Silas, both of whom were adopted from Colombia, South America. Together we comprise ‘Team Kirkland’ (complete with matching hats, just like the Griswold’s). We enjoy Clemson football, board games, quality snacks, and getting outside as much as possible.
As your Groups Pastor I bring this same team approach to RADIUS, which means I have an eye toward anything that helps us continue to grow our culture of family and friendship at RADIUS. Most frequently this plays out practically in our weekly community groups, but also happens during times like weekend getaways, softball games, cornhole tournaments, and of course, Sunday morning.
My undergraduate degree is from Clemson (the highlight of this time was meeting my wife), and I also hold a MA in Biblical Exegesis from Wheaton College Graduate School (the highlight of this season was growing in my love for the local church).
