Kevin Zhou was born in Seattle and spent his early childhood there, then moved to Beijing for middle and high school. He grew up attending church, but it wasn’t until going to college in Pittsburgh that he came to faith. During this time, God cultivated a desire within Kevin’s heart to serve and lead in the local church.

After college, Kevin moved to Chicago to pursue a PhD in Math at UIC. He has been part of Church of the Beloved since late 2018 and had served in various capacities at the Wicker Park campus before joining staff.

In his free time, Kevin enjoys making music, playing video games, watching anime, exercising, and reading.
