Won used to be a volleyball-fanatic during his college years at CMU & Rutgers. Then he got married to the gal of his dreams and made her a volleyball-widow because he was still too gung-ho about volleyball. Eventually he realized his neglect, sought his wife’s forgiveness (she’s forgiven him for this and much more), and became the dad of five "Kwaklings": Madelyn Joy, Naomi Ruth, Bethany Hope, Owen Lucas & Jordan Aeneas.

Won has served both bi-vocationally and non-vocationally as a pastor in Flushing [Queens, NY], Somerset [NJ], Rutherford [NJ], and Park Slope [Brooklyn, NY]. In 2005, he was commissioned as a Nehemiah Church Planter with the North American Mission Board. He is a graduate of Rutgers University and Union University [TN], and he’s also received extensive church planting training with Redeemer City to City. He moved his family to the Greater Fort Lee, NJ area for the purpose of leading and loving this church planting mission.
