Conference Speaker Profile
In 2008, Kevin and Grace, his wife, planted New City Church of LA, an inclusive gospel-centered community in downtown Los Angeles, where he is currently the lead pastor. New City has grown into a growing, vibrant, multi-ethnic, multi-socioeconomic church. New City has no dominant ethnic group; it has roughly the same number of people in each major ethnic group: Black, Latino, White, and Asian. About one-third come from Skid Row recovery community, one-third from downtown lofts, and one third from outside of downtown.
Kevin also leads a church planting movement to plant gospel-driven churches in every neighborhood in Los Angeles. Kevin is a church planting coach and church planting network coach with Stadia. He is a contributor to a book on missional church planting by Mark Lou Branson (coming out soon) and is scheduled to teach a class in Fall 2013 on church planting at Fuller Theological Seminary.
