New City Church
Los Angeles, CA


Kevin Haah serves as the lead pastor of New City Church in Los Angeles, CA. Kevin went from being a young urban single out of Cornell Law School to getting married (Grace), having three kids (Kaetlyn, and twins Eliana and Bennett), making partner at a prestigious law firm, giving up law to pursue a Master in Divinity at Fuller Theological Seminary, and becoming a pastor and a church planter.

Kevin lived in a loft and worked in US Bank Tower in downtown LA before it became fashionable to live here, and ministered to the poor in downtown LA's Skid Row for over 10 years.

His vision is 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 to the neighborhood by serving the neighborhood. His vision is also to lead a church planting movement in Los Angeles--planting an inclusive gospel-centered church in every neighborhood in Los Angeles.

Kevin is also an adjunct professor at Fuller Seminary in Pasadena and serves as a church planting coach and a leader of the LA Church Planting Movement. 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.
