Rev. Kevin G. Ewing moved to New Haven, CT to attend Yale Divinity School and seems to have found a home. Though Kevin has been involved in various levels of public life since elementary school, he began working as a Professional Organizer in New Haven in 2005. After several years as a Neighborhood Organizer in three neighborhoods in the city of New Haven, Kevin now spends more time coaching and training local leaders to use the principles and tools of organizing in their neighborhoods, organizations or other forms of community. He is developing a ‘place-based’ model of building community and working to create a culture of collaboration in our neighborhoods which he calls “Building a Relational Culture.” He is cofounder of the Frontline Souljaz, a new business development fraternity designed to tap into the natural entrepreneurial tendencies of urban men to develop businesses that supply the products and services needed in our communities. He is a founding member of The Grove – a coworking space located in downtown New Haven and is currently working with them to develop a training academy utilizing the skills and talents of Grove members.
Known on the streets of New Haven as RevKev, he serves on the boards/steering committee of Havens for the Future, the International Festival of Arts & Ideas, and is a commissioner with the New Haven Development Commission and is frequently called upon to represent the “community” in grant making, planning and development initiatives across the region. In his free time, (when there is free time) he loses golf balls or crews in sailboat races.
