Peter graduated from UCLA with B.A. in Economics and worked in business consulting where he learned the importance of professionalism and faced the challenge of integrating faith and work. In 2013, he stepped into vocational pastoral ministry and served as a college and young adult pastor at IN2 Onnuri Church in Midtown NYC. As he was finishing his M.Div program at Biblical Seminary in 2017, he discerned his call to be a church planter and decided to join Maranatha Grace Church to learn and grow.
Peter and his wife, Herim, have been greatly encouraged, challenged, and shaped by the Gospel-centered community at MGC. As much as they are both millennial foodies who appreciate fashion and arts, they truly know the secret that food always tastes better when they serve others in the community through table fellowship at their apartment. They have a strong desire to cultivate this culture of inviting others into private space as they begin the church plant in the near future.
