When he isn't chatting to someone over a cup of coffee, he enjoys reading, playing board games and doing sport activities with his sons.
He said: "I'm looking forward to getting to know people in the area, inside and outside the church, and developing relationships with people.
"I think in Latin America there is a strong emphasis on relationships and spending time with people.
"Hopefully I can bring a bit of that with me to Gidea Park."
Rev Kirk's induction ceremony will take place on Tuesday, July 9.
