Meet the Ministry Team


 

Majors Rob & Stacy Birks
Pastors

Rob & Stacy Birks, Majors, are in their 35th year of marriage and their 32nd year of ministry as officers in The Salvation Army. They’ve served God & OTHERS up & down the West Coast, including Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland & Seattle, plus a few places just off the coast; Puyallup, WA & Sacramento, CA. Their first ministry destination, however – in 1992 – was San Diego. Coming back here, nearly three decades later, was a complete surprise to them – a fantastic one! They have three adult children; Emily, Graham & Lauren, each married and living elsewhere. “Empty Nesters,” would fit them if it weren’t for a beautiful English Creme Retriever, named “Charlie.”

Stacy enjoys hospitality & fiber arts (she’s been known to participate in Yarn Bombing - it’s a thing). Rob is into baseball, books, movies and vinyl records. Truth be told, he’s a bit of a music nerd. Stacy prefers the term “Rock Snob”.

They both enjoy sharing life and Jesus with others and witnessing what God accomplishes in and through The Salvation Army San Diego Ray & Joan Kroc Center.

A space where women gather together and encourage each other, creating disciples of Jesus who will impact their family, community and the world. Our goal is to play a vital role in the lives of women so that the benefit is felt throughout the entire family. We help women strengthen the relationships they care about as we grow closer together and closer to God. We firmly believe that women who are close to God draw others close to Him as well.
