Meet Rev. Jiyeon Kim, Associate Pastor for Children and First Impressions
Pastor Jiyeon was born in Incheon South Korea, and has travelled to the Philippines, Japan, Thailand, Turkey, and China. She graduated from Yonsei University in Seoul with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Theology and Social Welfare in 2008, and from Wesley Theological Seminary with a Master of Divinity in 2012.
