Rev. MJ Kirby

Pastor | Welcome to the Big Top! Yes, this is my circus. These are my monkeys. And I love it!  

I’m a God seeker who loves mia famiglia, clean living, rainbows, coast life, pushing limits, deep conversations, harmony & high heels.

I’m Learning. Living. Becoming. Transforming. Growing. Loving. Letting go. Journeying on. Returning to God one vulnerable breath at a time.

Soul shepherd. UMC Pastor: I believe so passionately in the power of ordinary people like YOU and me falling in love with Jesus and discovering an EXTRAordinary calling. Let’s build something together.

Runner. Wanna B Yogi. Dreamer of impossible dreams. Deep grief colors my life. But somehow–through the power of the risen Christ–I STILL LIVE! And I want you to LIVE, like really, really LIVE too!
