Dr. Kirk Franklin is executive director of the Wycliffe Global Alliance (wycliffe.net). Born and raised as an MK (missionary kid) in Papua New Guinea, he has served with Wycliffe for 32 years in media and leadership roles.

Kirk is the Executive Director of the Wycliffe Global Alliance comprising nearly 100 organizations who are engaging in over 1,000 languages in the worldwide Bible translation movement.
He earned his PhD at University of Pretoria in South Africa, analyzing leadership philosophies of leaders in the Wycliffe Global Alliance, leadership development approaches, funding and generosity, doing a case study from Ghana and other contributing factors.

He formulated a paradigm for a global mission leadership mindset that informs other movements that must navigate within the complexities of leading within a global mission context. His presentation of the challenge of poverty and generosity is thus informed by cutting-edge research and major influence on the global agenda.
