Guest Speakers:

Kim Dorr-Tilley is the Executive Pastor of Bel Air Church in Los Angeles, CA. The unique hyphenate, “Pastor – Talent Agent,” which she had for many years, opened doors for Kim to teach, preach, and share her testimony. She was a highlighted interview in the nine-part internet documentary series, “Christ Revealed,” which featured top Christian apologists and historians and filmed on-location in Israel and across America. The series debuted in November 2017 and can now be found at www.ChristRevealed.com. Kim continues to reach young women and many in the entertainment industry through a Tedx Talk entitled, “It’s About Time for Women… to Remember the Source of Their Identity.” Quite a different audience was reached through an episode of the Sarah Silverman show, I Love You America, which brought leaders of various faith traditions into dialogue over a game of Horse.

Kim became a member of Bel Air Church in 1993 and has served on the pastoral staff since 2005. She currently has oversight of all BAC ministries including Missional Engagement, Community, Life Groups, Kids & Students, and more. Kim earned her M.Div at Fuller Seminary in 2002 and completed a Masters of Theology in Theology at Fuller Seminary with a focus on Faith and Culture in 2021. Kim worked as a Casting Director for nine years before becoming a Talent Agent in 1993. She was the founder and co-owner of Defining Artists Talent Agency from 2003 to 2015 where she helped launched the careers of such people as Rami Malek, Jessica Alba and America Ferrera. She is married to her sweetheart, Bob. Born and raised in Denver, she is a die-hard Broncos fan. Follow Pastor Kim on Instagram.

She started her professional acting career in 1997 following the National Youth Music Theater's West End and Broadway produced, Brecht's The Threepenny Opera, playing the leading role of Polly Peachum. She continued to return to her theatrical roots playing Rosalind in Shakespeare's As You Like It, Roxanne in the Royal Exchange production of Cyrano de Bergerac as she pursued her film and TV career.

Jessica appeared in the Tim Burton smashes, Sleepy Hollow and Alice in Wonderland and has enjoyed starring in and supporting several BBC productions including Murphy's Law, Mayo, People Like Us and Madame Bovary. Oyelowo premiered her song, What Love Does, alongside the release of The Water Man (in which she also starred in) as well as wrote three additional tracks for the film’s original soundtrack.

Most recently Jessica has been building the production company she runs with her husband, Yoruba Saxon, in LA, while raising their four children and enjoys playing the piano while singing as well as practicing ballet and pilates.
