About Kevin Holland

As a pastor, I’ve had opportunities to coach individuals and organizations in the area of racial dynamics for decades. I’ve also served as the lone African-American Regional Evangelist in the Los Angeles International Church of Christ for over a decade.

I have facilitated countless crucial conversations among members of various races, and conducted training in cultural competency and sensitivity. I have taught classes going through Ibram X. Kendi's Stamped from the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America and Jemar Tisby's The Color of Compromise: The Truth about the American Church’s Complicity in Racism, etc. I have also worked extensively with the Social Cultural Unity and Diversity Task Force. There are SCUAD chapters in many of our churches that work toward racial equity, understanding, and reconciliation. In addition, I am also a part of the Disciples Working to Abolish the New Jim Crow coalition and Disciples Pursuing Justice.

Kevin Holland has served our church as one of the only African-American lead ministers in the Los Angeles International Church of Christ for over two decades. He leads a multi-ethnic ministry known for their unity. I had the opportunity to join a weekly midweek series that he was leading during the social unrest that occurred in 2020. He did an amazing job in teaching, facilitating discussions, and in helping us to deepen our understanding of one another through providing a safe place for people to be heard and understood. Kevin was also influential in other ministries during this time as he was willing to speak the truth in love to other leaders. He is excellent in discerning and addressing issues while applying biblical principles and his experience as we discuss issues such as race, cultural humility, gender issues and social justice. I wholeheartedly recommend Kevin as a coach for an organization that desires to develop in areas of race, culture, social justice and unity.

Kevin shared his vision and deep passion to promote justice for people of color via The Breathing Room Podcast. Being an Asian-American Christian, I was woke and inspired to imitate Kevin's decision to champion the message of the prophets and Jesus to do good and seek justice for those who can't speak up or defend themselves. Kevin said, "Don't look away at the injustices. Say something and do something." He could help you and/or your organization achieve the same goals.

I have known Kevin Holland for many years. He is a humble man. One of the most amazing contributions that Kevin has made recently was putting together a podcast called "The Breathing Room." This podcast created a space for people of color and faith to come together to have lived experiences acknowledged, to support each other along the journey, and to collectively take a deep breath. This was validating and powerful. So many of those who listened were changed and impacted in powerful ways.
