Presenter: Yolanda “Yo”Miller, SoulCare Coach, Fuller Theological Seminary

Yo Headshot 2015 600x600

Yolanda Miller (also known as Yo), a SoCal native, currently works with leading spiritual formation groups for students in Vocation Formation Groups and Apprenticeship Groups at Fuller Seminary in Pasadena, as well as groups for those in the marketplace who are curious about exploring God’s calling through Fuller’s De Pree Center for Leadership. She is currently working on her spiritual direction certification with Sisters of St. Joseph in Orange. The common thread through all of these is a passion for helping people discover their identity in Christ, what they were created to do with their life, and a deeper intimacy with their Creator.


Before and after graduating from Fuller with a M.A. in Theology and Youth Ministry in 2000, Yolanda worked in professional youth ministry before ‘retiring’ to answer the call to be stay-at-home parent to two kids, along with her husband Jim, in Glendora, CA. She enjoys gardening, writing, traveling (mostly in her mind, during the pandemic), laughing (often at herself) with others, and eating really amazing food (preferably that she didn’t have to cook herself). 

Workshop #2: Discovering Sacred Rest

Did you know there are 7 different types of rest? In this workshop, you’ll learn about the multiple types of rest as well as learn practical strategies for rest practices.

Kevin Anthony Headshot 600Originally from Miami, Florida, Kevin moved to Los Angeles in 2004 to pursue his acting career. Knowing that acting was not his only ‘calling’ he enrolled at CalState LA and obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Philosophy which eventually led to a Master’s of Divinity from Fuller Theological Seminary.  Kevin’s desire to minister in non-traditional settings led to his enrollment in the Clinical Pastoral Education Program at Providence St. Joseph in Burbank. There he had the privilege of working with the Inpatient Palliative Care Team which helped him realize his passion for serving the sick and vulnerable. For two years Kevin worked as a chaplain for Providence TrinityCare Hospice, ministering to both families and children. Kevin joined the Spiritual Care Team at Providence Holy Cross in 2018. He is ordained with the Evangelical Church Alliance and is a Board Certified Chaplain through the Association of Professional Chaplains
