KJ Kim, Pastor
KJ Kim began serving as a Minister in July of 2019. KJ earned his Master of Theological Studies degree from Brite Divinity School at Texas Christian University, and was ordained by the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).
Before he was called to this position, he served a Korean Christian Church for nearly ten years as Associate Minister and Executive Minister. KJ, a first-generation immigrant from South Korea, received his Bachelor of Arts degree, his Master of Theology (Major: Church History) from Seoul Christian University, and his Master of Divinity from Korea Christian University.
During his seminary years in the United States and South Korea, KJ liked to study the of history of Christianity and the theological ethics. With this background, he has contemplated the following question: “How do we build the Christian community as a loving community for all people of God in terms of welcoming and honoring differences?” He believes that the FCC, as the beloved community, can be a shelter for everyone in a fragmented world.
Outside of church, KJ enjoys jogging, lifting weights, drinking black coffee, playing with his two sons and creating new projects. He loves to meet new people, including traditions, cultures, and foods. In addition, he likes conversations about anything and everything. His wife, Hyeyoung (Anna), is also a lifelong Christian. They and their children, Joel and Johan, love being part of FCC at Stephenville. Contact Pastor KJ Kim at email@example.com.
