Biography

Kevin Lum currently serves as the national coordinator of Sojourners Faith and Justice Justices. Faith and Justice Churches is a unique network that provides a place for churches across the country to receive much needed resources and a place to connect with other like-minded ministers.

Kevin also serves as the Executive Director of the Anacostia Gracious Arts Program, a small arts non-profit in Southeast DC.

Prior to moving to Washington, Kevin served, as the Assistant Director of Reaching Our City, one of the fastest growing faith-based non-profits in Oklahoma. The organization provides medical care, much needed food, legal aide and a host of other services to the poor of Oklahoma City. Also during his time there, he established and directed the United Families Project, which brought community families together for a meal, a time of fellowship, and life-skills training. Following his time at Reaching Our City, Kevin served as the Assistant Director of the Bresee Institute, which provided urban ministry training to seminary students.

While at Bressee, Kevin had the unique opportunity to direct and participate in a multi-faith training program at Leavenworth Federal Prison. His experience as a minister in a local church, also created in Kevin the desire to see local churches overcome their apathy towards the poor and global injustice. This desire is one that eventually led him to his current position.

Kevin earned his bachelors degree in theology at Southern Nazarene University and is currently completing an MA in Theology at his alma mater and a Masters of Divinity at Nazarene Theological Seminary. During his studies Kevin has placed a special emphasis on the history of evangelical social action, urban ministry, social justice and post-modern theology.

Kevin enjoys reading, studying theology, and is a news/political junkie. He is also a minister with the Church of the Nazarene. Kevin lives with his wife Charla on Capitol Hill.
