An avid reader and a sometime poet, Pastor Sam listens for the Word of God spoken afresh for our context. Through reading the news, digesting books, and listening to members’ reflections, Pastor Sam has many voices in his head that dialogue with the Bible passage he’s studying at any given moment. Because the Holy Spirit leads him to greater conviction when he is more vulnerable, he tries to present his fears and questions to God as he studies the Bible and shepherds his congregation. He received a BA in Political Science from Yale University, MDiv from Princeton Theological Seminary, and was ordained by the Korean Presbyterian Church Abroad. He served as an associate pastor in Onnuri English Ministry from 2006-2007, then served at NJ Chodae Church before joining In2 Church in 2013. He loves husbanding Grace and fathering Abigail, and is grateful for every friendship God has brought into his life through In2 Church.
Pastor Bob was born in Seoul, Korea, but was transported to America at the tender age of 1 1/2 months. He loves being in ministry and especially enjoys two aspects of it: 1) Reading books (~3 books a month, favorite genre: historical nonfiction) and sharing those insights with people, and 2) Listening to and ministering to others in prayer. He lives to receive and dispense grace as written about in his favorite books, Pastoral Graces by Lee Eclov and The Grace Awakening by Chuck Swindoll. He studied American History at Columbia University and received his Master of Divinity degree at Alliance Theological Seminary. He loves serving and growing with the In2 community, which he joined in August 2016. He is passionate about the New York Mets, anything spicy, Red (aka the best Christian rock band in the universe), and spending time with people and hearing their stories.
Pastor Suyoun was one of the earliest members of In2 Church. After joining, she served as a volunteer in Children’s Ministry and as a small group leader in the Young Adult service. In 2012, she responded to God’s call by enrolling in Alliance Theological Seminary, where she graduated with a Master of Divinity degree in 2016. Having spent most of her adult life working and studying in Manhattan, she loves to discover new coffee shops and restaurants. Be warned, when she takes you out to eat at one of her favorite places, she will pay for your meal but you will probably find that you’ve committed to serving with her to share Jesus with the next generation.
