Kevin Haah is New City’s Lead Pastor. He went from being a young urban single out of Cornell Law School to getting married to his wife Grace, having three children, making partner at a prestigious law firm, then giving up law to pursue a Master’s of Divinity at Fuller Seminary, and becoming a pastor and church planter.

Kevin lived in a loft and worked in the US Bank Tower in downtown LA before it became fashionable. And he ministered to residents of Skid Row for several years before planting New City.

His vision has been to build an inclusive, gospel-centered community in downtown LA, which not only shares the good news of Jesus with the people of downtown but also becomes good news by serving the neighborhood. He also co-leads a church planting movement in Los Angeles.

Kevin also teaches at Fuller Seminary as a professor. He is also one of the authors of the book, Starting Missional Church: Life with God in the Neighborhood (IVP 2014).

In his off hours, you might find him reading a book, having a theological conversation with his kids, running a marathon, or biking with his family.
