Jin was born and raised in South Korea as a pastor's kid. He came to the United States as an exchange student during his senior year of high school. He fell in love with the US, especially its diversity of culture, and so he attended college and seminary (Dallas Theological Seminary, Th.M) here in the States as well. He is a Doctor of Ministry (D.Min) candidate at Westminster Theological Seminary.
His call to gospel ministry has grown over the years through the affirmation of the local body of believers. As the call grew, he served part-time during college and seminary. After graduation, he has served full-time as an associate pastor until the Lord has called him to Stone Hill. For some time, he has been praying for the opportunity to work in the Northeast and serve its rich diversity of people. As Christians, the 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 all believers, as different as they may be. He is thrilled that Stone Hill embodies this virtue.
As an assistant pastor, Jin helps to provide pastoral care for Stone Hill Church. He shepherds the congregation and visitors. And he oversees ministry to young adults, including graduate students as well as career adults. In his spare time, he enjoys working out, swimming, watching thoughtful movies, and reading edifying books.
