Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary
Semlink Teaching Fellow for Theology
Kirk Patterson was born in southern Georgia, but he and his family moved to the Knoxville, TN area when he was twelve. He graduated from Tennessee Tech University with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Management. While in college, he was heavily involved leading Bible studies and worship through music with his college ministry. After graduating, he got married to his college sweetheart, Shelby, and spent a year teaching music and working with a Christian non-profit called Lifechangers. In August 2010, they moved to South Hamilton, MA, and he is currently in his second year of the Masters of Divinity program. He strongly enjoys studying theodicy, the doctrine of humanity, ecclesiology, and theories of atonement. His passion is to discover how biblical and systematic theology “touch the ground” and transfer into our everyday actions. Other activities he enjoys include playing guitar, traveling, hiking, playing disc golf, and the Tennessee Volunteers.
