Brian Kim

Brian (Byungsuk) Kim, D.Min.

Assistant Director for Korean Master of Divinity (KMDV)

Manager for KMDV Internship Program


Brian is a man of many talents - whether preaching, teaching, administrating, or leading worship. Brian is up early each morning to support his church through a daily prayer ministry, then divides his time between preparing for church services, teaching at Northwest, or translating for another professor. And when all this is done, he happily returns home to his wife and four children.
