I was born in Korea but grew up in the United States. After moving back to Korea for college and to serve in the military, I went back to the States and got my masters in theology with a concentration in Intercultural Studies from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, IL. It is a great honor to be able to serve God and His people wherever He places me and I am enjoying every moment of serving here at AIM! I am married to my beautiful wife Rachel and we have three lovely children, Elizabeth, David, and Daniel.
I've been a pastor for nearly 30 years. I have a wonderful wife, Lisa, and five amazing children. In addition, we have 10 grandchildren! Alyssa, our youngest child is with us in Korea and is studying at Kyungsung University here in Busan. Lisa and I started NK Missions over 4 years ago. It is a missions organization serving North Korean refugees.
I serve as an academic professor at Kosin University and a graduate / postgraduate research supervisor of South African Theological Seminary. I earned my PhD in Theology in Systematic Theology and Ethics. I have been serving as a pastor in South Korea since 2010 and love to serve both the international and Korean communities. I hope and pray to be a bridge of unity among God's people. Jean (Ji Eun) and I have have three gorgeous children, Kayla, Ariel, and Ethan.
