Introducing the candidate for Assistant Pastor

Welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you (Romans 15:7).

It is my great pleasure to introduce Jin Hyo Lee, candidate for the Assistant Pastor position here at Stone Hill. Jin is well-fitted for the position! In the course of a seven month search, the Search Team has reviewed over 150 applications. From that pool, a smaller set of highly qualified candidates was interviewed via phone or Skype and/or in person by staff, elders, and congregants. And Jin is the finalist.

Here is Jin in his own words:

Greetings to the brothers and sisters of Stone Hill Church! I have heard so much about you through the staff, and it seems obvious that the Lord is doing something very special among the believers of Stone Hill!

I was born and raised in South Korea as a pastor’s kid. I came to the United States as an exchange student during my senior year of high school. I fell in love with the US, especially its diversity of culture, and so I attended college and seminary (Dallas Theological Seminary, Th.M) here in the States as well. I am currently pursuing a Doctor of Ministry degree at Westminster Theological Seminary.

My call to gospel ministry has grown over the years through the affirmation of the local body of believers. As the call grew, I served part-time during college and seminary. After graduation, I have served full-time as an associate pastor in alocal church here in Dallas.

For some time, I have been praying for the opportunity to work in the Northeast and serve its rich diversity of people. As Christians, our common denominator is not income status, education level, or race. It is the gospel and blood of Jesus Christ. The power of the gospel unites us, as different as we may be. I am thrilled that Stone Hill embodies this virtue!

I can’t wait to meet you in person. May the grace and peace of Jesus Christ be with you.

Jin will be visiting Stone Hill next Sunday. His schedule is included in this week’s bulletin. Please pray for God’s guidance in the remaining steps of the process.

Resources for Bible engagement and meditation

…his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers. (Ps. 1:2–3)

In light of our year verse (Psalm 1:2–3), I thought I would provide the following resources on engaging with and meditating upon scripture.
