Rev. Edwin Estevez
Associate Pastor | Mission
Rev. Edwin Estevez is incredibly grateful to the Kirk family of faith for the opportunity to work toward his Doctorate in Ministry (D.Min.) in a special partnership between Wesley Seminary (DC) and University of Cambridge (UK), thankful his daughter Eva Ruth graduated from Kirk Preschool, and soon, his son Eli will begin! He is blessed to count his wife, Dr. Merideth Hite Estevez as a ministry partner, as she serves as a Kirk Associate in Music, as well as an oboist, creative coach, author, and wonderful mother. He has enjoyed serving the Outreach, Mission, and Membership Committees, encouraging collaboration and innovation through the Faith Leaders Breakfast, Pontiac Collaborators Conference, and future Mission Center.
He is the son of Guatemalan immigrants and was born and raised in North Jersey and has served as a church planter and Senior Pastor in downtown Wilmington, Delaware, helping to launch a girl’s middle school, community garden, kitchen incubator, and cafe. He received a BA in Political Science from Fairleigh Dickinson University and received his M.Div. and M.A. in Religious Education at Princeton Theological Seminary. An alumnus of The Washington Center, Duke University Christian Leadership Program, and the Institute for Advanced Pastoral Studies, he is always open to conversations on faith, mission, and being church!
