Rt. Rev. Kirk Jeffery graduated from Borah High School in Boise, Idaho in 1989. He then attended Boise State University and graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Social Work. From there he went to Methodist Theological School in Ohio where he earned a Master of Divinity and Master of Arts in Christian Education with a specialization in Youth Ministry. During seminary, he served as the student associate pastor at Marysville United Church of Christ in Marysville, Ohio.
After graduation, he began serving United Methodist Churches in Oregon and Idaho. He served congregations in New Meadows, Idaho, Emmett and Sweet, Idaho, Caldwell, Idaho, Monroe, Oregon, Lebanon, Oregon and Sherwood, Oregon. While serving as pastor to these congregations, he completed a Doctor of Ministry degree from Drew University (2010).
Upon leaving the United Methodist Church Kirk joined the Open Episcopal Church and was ordained to the priesthood October 20, 2013; however, because of the lack of support shown to the clergy in the United States by the OEC Father Kirk chose to incardinate with The Young Rite.
Bishop Kirk was consecrated on November 2nd, 2018 and serves as a governing bishop in the Community of Saint George (The Young Rite).
