New Wine Collective

Our team

Eugene Kim
Founder

Eugene has been a pastoral and organizational leader for over twenty years. After spending 17 years helping to build a church from a young start up into a large established church with multiple locations, he discerned a call to step beyond the familiar and pursue a reimagining of how we do church and spirituality in our world today.

Eugene has a B.A. in Biblical Studies and an M.Div., and is currently ordained in the Evangelical Covenant Church. He has deconstructed and reconstructed his faith several times, but each time has found God to be even bigger and better than what he’s known before. He’s now rediscovering the way of Jesus embodied in simple love and compassion.

Eugene lives in the Greater Boston area with his wife and three children. He’s a recovering workaholic and regrets not having more hobbies, but is working really hard at that.

Mike Chen
Chief Technology Officer

Mike is a software engineer who grew up in the Boston area and has worked at a broad range of companies from startups to larger companies like Airbnb and Google.

Mike grew up as a Christian but has spent the last several years revisiting the spiritual questions he’s had his whole life, trying to separate the helpful from the unhelpful elements of religion. He’s now interested in exploring the intersection between technology, community, and faith.

Mike currently lives in the Bay Area with his wife. In his free time, he enjoys playing music and video games.

In addition, New Wine Collective is guided by a Board of Directors, and supported by a diverse community of advisors and team members.
