I am Kevin Wilson.
I was born in Sri Lanka, moved to the Sultanate of Oman when I was 12, and have lived in Maryland, Lebanon, Michigan, and California.
Over the past 30 years, I’ve picked up 3.5 languages and have traveled to 13 countries
Currently, I’m a youth and young adult pastor at the Oceanside SDA Church attempting to help my tribe think meaningfully about their lives so they can live their lives meaningfully.
I also try to do this on TikTok and Instagram through storytelling.
My multi-cultural upbringing has instilled me this deep belief that people cannot be reduced to a sum of body parts, a few sentences on a social media post, nor a set of labels.
I believe people are stories, created in the image of God with a capacity for love and to love.
Chai (spiced milk tea) has been a companion during these cross cultural adventures; an enduring connector of humanity, and a placeholder for things like home, family, hospitality, and community.
If you’re here, chances are you already know that 🙂
I’d love to get to know you more. Hit me up on any of the links in the homepage and let’s have a virtual chai 🙂

I appreciate you. You make my heart happy (and you are educating my palate). Thank you for sharing your wisdom, your words and your faith. If only you had a regular podcast 😊
Btw: you are helping me “reset” my faith after a very disappointing, but even more disheartening, situation within my Presbyterian church (and I LOVED my church and it’s beliefs).
Just heard a great mention of your work on “the Bible binge” and went to your website.
Your “I believe…” statement about our stories — exactly!!’
I’m old school and don’t have social media accounts nevertheless I heard you speak at LLU this week and I was inspired and impressed by your message and approach to spirituality. Just wanted to learn more about your ministry and Chai. Can you believe I also have never tasted Chai?
