I was born and raised in South Korea and grew up in a Christian home where my parents taught the importance of faith not only in the church, but also in my life and respect for others.
I studied Theology at Hyup Sung University in Hwasung, Korea, and Global Leadership at Dallas Baptist University in Dallas, TX. I received my Master of Divinity from Drew University in Madison, NJ.
My wife, Ruah and I have one daughter and two sons: Hael, Joel and Israel. Along my path, I discovered a passion for the local church. Scripture, deep prayer, service, and loving all people. I believe that Christian faith is not just about Sunday morning in a church building; it is all about living fully as God intends in every place at every time in the presence of God.
