TRF is about more than just meeting physical needs and John Kirkland is a key role player in our Coaching initiative. John and his wife Julie have spent over 20 years living and working in Africa with time spent in Tanzania, Kenya, Togo and Ethiopia. In each of these places the Kirklands invested heavily in mentoring and discipling young people. John’s focus with TRF will be developing and coaching those we work with on life, eternity and generosity. John also draws from his network built from his many years in Africa to build partnerships. John has been married to his wife Julie for 37 years and they have three children and one grandchild, Lily Ruth.
