Kirk and Sarah Irwin


Thank you for your interest in our ministry.

We’re on staff with Cru (formerly Campus Crusade for Christ). Together, we’ve accumulated 40+ years of experience in ministry—22 specifically in the arts.  Sarah has been a designer for the Campus Ministry since 1999—a few of those years as Art Director overseeing all design elements coming from the creative team at Campus Crusade for Christ headquarters in Orlando. Kirk—along with a NYU Film student—started the arts ministry transFORM for the Metro Campus Ministry two years after he arrived in New York City in 1998. 

Since 2014 we have partnered with a non-profit arts organization called Friday Arts Project— (an independent 501c3 group) based in Rock Hill, South Carolina. As Executive Director (Kirk) and Creative Director (Sarah) of Friday Arts Project, the work we do is very similar to what Kirk did while working with the International Arts Movement in New York City. We mentor and disciple artists who love Jesus—both collegiate and professional, and we also create space to engage artists and friends of the Arts from any religious background. We do this by convening Bible studies or discussion groups. etc. from our home, or wherever is convenient depending on the need or desire of the artists we work with. We also help facilitate events like art shows, concerts, lectures, etc. that create space for people to enter into significant conversations where opportunities for the gospel and its values are cultivated. Read our vision page for more details.

Cru's vision is to create spiritual movements everywhere so that everybody knows somebody that truly follows Jesus of Nazareth.
