Church Realities in a Post-COVID West

A Saturate Webinar

Will the church ever go back to its pre-COVID normal? From technology to finances; from essential ministries to even the definitions of core principles like discipleship and mission, many church leaders enter the summer with more questions about the future than answers.

Kevin Kim helps lead WeAreChurch and Crazy Love Ministries in San Francisco and joins Ben Connelly for a final COVID-19-related webinar. We’ll discuss learnings from WeAreChurch’s history, as we all consider our churches’ future.

Kevin Kim

Kevin Kim is the Executive Director of Crazy Love in San Francisco, co-founder of a faith-based technology organization called Basil Tech, co-founder of a startup called Common Coin and an elder and pastor at We Are Church.

He grew up near Richmond, Virginia and received his B.A in Biology from the University of Virginia because his mother told him that Korean people are supposed to be doctors.

He went to seminary near Philadelphia and received a M.Div and a wife from Biblical Theological Seminary.  In 2007 he moved to Northern California to join the staff at Menlo Church. At Menlo he served as a Student Ministries Director, Campus Pastor, Teaching Pastor, Director of Innovation and resident male model for diversity.

In 2013 he moved to San Francisco to help plant family churches with We Are Church. He lives in San Francisco with his wife and his 3 children–Karis, Ellie and Isaiah. He is currently working on an exciting project called Read Scripture which you can download in the App Store and Google Play.
