Meet the Pastor - Rev. John Han

John Han is a passionate, creative, and spiritual leader and disciple of Christ committed to the good news of Jesus Christ for the kingdom of God in the local church and the community.  He casts the vision for the church and sets the overall direction for church programs. He provides leadership for and actively participates in worship, preaching, pastoral care, discipleship, evangelism, and mission for the transformative life of members. 

A native of South Korea, John completed his Bachelor of Engineering in Polymer at Dankook University, South Korea in 2001. He pursued the Master of Science in Physics but could not complete it due to a car accident. With ceaseless prayers, he strongly felt he was called to be in a professional Christian ministry.
