Walter Kim became the NAE president in January 2020. He also serves as teacher-in-residence at Trinity Presbyterian Church in Charlottesville, Virginia, after ministering for 15 years at Boston’s historic Park Street Church. He has spent nearly three decades preaching, writing and engaging in collaborative leadership to connect the Bible to the significant intellectual, cultural and social issues of the day. He serves on the boards of Christianity Today and World Relief, and on the Advisory Council of Gordon College. Kim received his Ph.D. from Harvard University in Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations, his M.Div. from Regent College in Vancouver, and his B.A. from Northwestern University, and he is a licensed minister in the Conservative Congregational Christian Conference.
Motivated by their love of Christ, evangelicals welcomed Walter Kim’s father when he arrived in South Korea as a refugee. Walter’s parents immigrated to the United States, and as a young person, Walter found his ultimate home in Christ.
The National Association of Evangelicals seeks to reflect God’s love and to serve as a welcome home for the many expressions of evangelicalism.
Our cultural moment is complicated. It requires the ability to think critically and to engage charitably. We need a voice that is clear, strong and peace-making. Would you give today to support that mission?Give Now
