Kurk Malwin


Business Manager

Kurk came to our office from a great distance. He was born in Venice back in 1961 (the day after Christmas to be exact) at Venice Memorial Hospital making him a true Venice native. Has been with our office since April of 1997 and just celebrated his 22nd year. Kurk has been married to Peggy Malwin (one of our dental assistants) for 34 years and counting, and has two lovely daughters Maci & Madison along with two precious grandsons Landon and Hudson. Kurk graduated from Venice High School in 1980, spent a semester at the University of Florida (Go Gators !!) and received his BS in Business Administration from Clearwater Christian College in 1985.

His past hobbies and sports include: skateboarding as a youth, competitive barefoot waterskiing in the late 70's and offshore fishing in shark tournaments back in the early to mid 80's with Peggy always as his first mate. Kurk has also trained and coached many elite athletes in the sport of bodybuilding, fitness and figure along with a host of other clients just wanting to get into great shape. Kurk’s niche in the fitness industry was prepping athletes for local, state, and even national competitions cumulating with a couple clients both placing second in the nation at the Masters Nationals in Pittsburg.

Kurks current passion is keeping his older brothers FaceBook page His Strength Not Mine active and up to date as a tribute to his brothers unexpected passing in March of 2017. It was his older brother Jarl Malwin Jr who started and founded this ministry, and it was Jarl’s mission and heart beat to reach out, encourage and help others in today’s difficult times. Jarl ALWAYS relied on Gods Strength (not his own) and was good at reciting Proverbs 3:5-7. Jarl chose Philippians 4:13 as the foundation of this ministry. Feel free to visit Jarl Malwins Facebook page His Strength Not Mine for daily morning devotionals as we strive to keep this torch burning for Jarl ... but more importantly for Gods glory !
