Jeehoon Kim

Rev. Jeehoon Kim, Ph.D. (Cand.)

Assistant Professor, Korean Language Programs

 

Jeehoon has spent most of his life with the title 'student' attached to his name, whether studying in Korea or Canada. This experience has made him a fantastic listener, conversationalist, learner, teacher and interpreter. It could also explain why his pastoral ministry involves many years of serving children and youth. He is happily married to teacher (yes!) and is expanding his knowledge base in his role as father.
