Lawrence L. Kirby II will be serving as our partnership’s new Community Engagement Network Manager. Lawrence’s professional experience includes a formal background in urban ministry and a passion to build relationships with diverse people groups. He has spent the past few years building unity and creating collaboration within the faith community, connecting with organizations and individuals to promote positive change, and building coalitions to meet the needs of Kenosha’s underserved populations.
Kirby, as he is called by most, is honored to be considered a leader and a positive influence in Kenosha and has served on the board of directors of the United Way of Kenosha County, Kenosha’s Police and Fire Commission and Kenosha County’s Health Equity Task Force. He currently serves on the governance board for KTec School and the executive committee of the board of directors for Bread for The World.
Lawrence currently leads One Voice Church alongside two other pastors. Through Kirby’s relationship building with multiethnic and multigenerational groups, he will be able to foster a culture of collaboration, accountability, and trust that will impact the educational success of children and families in Kenosha.
Most importantly, Lawrence is happily married to his best friend Chandrika and is the proud father of Reginald, Kennedy, and Marley.
We are so excited to have Lawrence as part of our team. Official start date is Tuesday, July 5.
