Business Administrator - Kathy Kirk
Kathy has worked at Plum Creek since January of 2001, however she
has been an active part of the church her whole life. Kathy is the
full-time Business Administrator. Kathy loves working with the
computer and enjoys using the church software program, Shepherd's
Staff. Shepherd's Staff provides the software for managing the
contributions, the accounting system, the church calendar,
attendance, and the membership database. In addition, Kathy helps
the church prepare for worship services, puts together the
bulletins, oversees the newsletter, handles the phones, and keeps
the church records organized.
Kathy spent most of her life doing a variety of things and is in
awe of how the Lord has used those things to enable her to do her
job!! She graduated from Chatham College in 1987 with a Bachelors
degree in Management. Prior to that, she attended Bradford
Business College and received a secretarial certificate and had
worked as a Personnel Manager for Pinkerton, Inc. Other jobs that
Kathy has had included working at a quilt shop, receptionist,
babysitter, data entry for the US Postal Service, and full time
housewife and mother. Each has helped her to bring something to
this position at Plum Creek.
Kathy is married to Jim (35+ years) and they have two daughters,
Sarah and Katherine. Jim graduated from Pittsburgh Theological
Seminary in 2008 and is the pastor at Valencia United Presbyterian
Church in Valencia, PA. Sarah is studying nursing at Waynesburg
University. Katherine is a general surgery resident at UPMC.
Kathy and Jim seek to go wherever the Lord is leading them and they
are very excited about their church at Valencia. Their hope and
prayer is that the rest of their lives be used in service to
Christ. Until called elsewhere, Kathy is very happily
working/juggling things in the church office and finds contentment
in the knowledge that that is exactly what the Lord prepared her
for and where she is to be.
