Greetings in the Lord! I pray you are experiencing abundant health and joy in Christ!
It is a privilege to introduce myself, and it my sincere desire to build wonderful friendships in
I was born into a healthy Christian family and served faithfully in the church during my
adolescent years. After my second year at UCLA, I withdrew to pursue an acting career, waiting
on tables at a sushi restaurant to make ends meet. However, three years of struggling as a
thespian was enough and I returned to UCLA to receive a BA in political science. After college I
began a five-year career as a portrait and commercial photographer in Los Angeles before
receiving my call into ministry during a mission trip to Siberia in 2006. I earned a Master of
Divinity from Wesley Theological Seminary in 2010, and served as a youth and young adult’s
pastor at Korean United Methodist Church of Greater Washington from 2007 to 2010. In 2011, I
planted an English speaking ministry at Changchun Methodist Church in Seoul, Korea, and
served this ministry as lead pastor for seven years. It was during my time in Korea that I
married my lovely wife, Jasper Kim, and was blessed with twin girls, Favor and Ella.
Last October we sensed the Lord calling us back to America, and on July 1, 2019, I was
appointed by the Atlanta-Roswell District Superintendent to serve as lead pastor for the English
speaking congregation at Korean Church of Atlanta UMC. We feel tremendously blessed to be
connected to such a wonderful community here at KCA, and I extend a warm welcome to join us
as we look forward to many fruitful years of life and service together!
May the Lord cause all of His goodness to flow in and through us to His glory and praise!
Elder Lim serves the English Ministry as our committee chair.
