David H. Kim

Rev. David H. Kim is the Director of the Gotham Initiative at Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Manhattan, and he runs an intensive leadership development fellowship for young professionals who seek to live out their faith meaningfully through their work in the City.

Before directing Gotham, David started a campus ministry at Princeton University called Manna Christian Fellowship and served as the executive director for over 15 years.  David was convinced that the heart and the head shouldn’t be separated, especially on the campus, and Manna has developed into a ministry that develops and engages a gospel worldview focusing on how the gospel renews both private and public worlds.

Ordained in the Presbyterian Church in America, David has a passion to make gospel-centered theology come to life in the day-to-day and in the whole of life.  Before his life in formal ministry, David worked at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia in the human molecular genetics lab.  He received his B.A. in biology from the University of Pennsylvania, his M.Div. from Westminster Theological Seminary, and his Th.M. from Princeton Theological Seminary in Christian Ethics, and is currently an D.Min. candidate at Fuller. David is married to his wonderful wife, Jane, who serves full-time at Manna Christian Fellowship and loves to fill students’ bellies with baked goods.
