Rev. Se Hyuk Park

Born into a Presbyterian minister’s family in Korea, Se Hyuk came to America in 2004. While studying theology and American religious history in Georgia and then California, he served several Korean American congregations. This experience helped him learn what it means for Christians to live as in the world “resident aliens” (1 Peter 2:11). He believes that the gospel has the power to change everything, and that he is called to help others know and experience its power. He is a professional translator with more than 30 books published. In his free time, he enjoys watching movies and listening to music, especially Jazz and Baroque music. He has been happily married to Eun Kyoung since 2004 and they have three children, Justin, Joyce and Rachel.

Rev. Park's office hours are 10 am to

3 pm on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
