Kirk Potter

Family Retreat Center & Community Ministries Director

Kirk Potter joined the staff in 2007 as the Director of Retreat Center and Community Ministries. He graduated from Biola University and Talbot Seminary, where he earned a BA and MA in Christian Education with an emphasis in camping. As a student, he spent 11 summers in camping, serving four different camps, including Firwood – where he was known as “Snap Biscuits” (it’s a long story).

Kirk has worked in church and camping ministries since then, including 16 years as the director of a Canadian camp. Kirk and Debbie are the parents of three children: Jeremy, Jonathan, and Halie. At home Kirk can often be found working on a house renovation project or with his head under the hood of an old car.
