Terry Kirk is an ordained minister with the Assemblies of God, the largest evangelical group globally. In 1983 he founded the Central Christian Assembly in Baltimore, Maryland where he currently serves as founding pastor. Terry has pastored for 50 years, but it wasn’t until 2009 when he had an epiphany regarding Israel with the thought that the church was to put Israel “first” among the nations. Since then, the church has financially designated a “first fruits” account, which is dedicated to ministries and organizations primarily in Israel. Pastor Kirk also serves on the Board of Directors of the Hidden Light Institute (Upheaval documentary of Menachem Begin). Pastor Kirk is the co-founder of Pastors & Executives for Israel and Hope Experience Tours, which focuses solely on Israel.
