Kim is a true Valley girl, born and raised in the San Fernando Valley of Southern California, and resides there now with her family. A proud Bruin, she graduated from UCLA with a BA in music and a teaching credential. She combined her love of music, youth, and ministry and headed east, working in the inner city of Camden, NJ, with UrbanPromise Ministries. There she taught music and musical theater and mentored teens. When she returned to Los Angeles, Kim worked various odd jobs until ministry came calling again. She has worked in different capacities with Every Nation Campus ever since. Currently, Kim oversees the worship ministry at Every Nation City Church in Los Angeles, works alongside her fabulous husband Raul in student ministry, and teaches elementary music.

Matthew Bolusan was raised in church but rejected God as a teen. He then returned to faith and watched God restore his once-broken family as a college student. His kingdom-driven desire is to make disciples and multiply leaders, while preaching the gospel to a world that desperately needs it. Matthew graduated from the University of Hawaii at Manoa with a double major in business management and finance, and was trained at the Every Nation School of Ministry in Honolulu, Hawaii. Currently, Matthew pastors the youth, college, and young adult ministries at Grace Bible Church Las Vegas. He formerly served as the youth pastor at Grace Bible Church Pearlside. Matthew is happily married to his beautiful wife, Jericah.
Seth was born in 1980 and has lived most of his life in Corvallis. He is married to his best friend, Hannah, and they have four kids: Caden, Jackson, Malachi, and Campbell. Seth went to Oregon State on a football scholarship and became a Christian as a sophomore through an outreach of Grace City. He quickly started serving with the church and campus ministry as a student, and after graduation went to work full-time as a campus minister. In 2007, he became the lead pastor of Grace City, and has thoroughly enjoyed the work he’s been called to do and the people he’s been called to do it with. He earned his master’s degree in biblical and theological studies from Western Seminary and still enjoys beaver football, Star Wars, and a good cup of green tea.
