Pastor Kirby is a native Tennesseean from the Cleveland and Chattanooga areas. He is extremely blessed to call Libby his wife, and together they spend their time chasing after two of God’s greatest blessings, their boys, Ethan and Kaden. While serving in the local church, Kirby had the great privilege of teaching both Greek and Latin in different schools in Kentucky and Tennessee. Kirby’s passions in ministry are preaching, teaching, visiting with church members, and international missions. When not at the church, you will find Pastor Kirby in the Smoky Mountains, taking his boys fishing or hiking, and enjoying the local shooting range. Kirby holds a B.A. in Religion and Latin from Samford University, and a Master of Divinity from the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. Pastor Kirby came to Mount Olive in June of 2017.
