Pastor Sun Joo Lee
“Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”

— 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (NRSV)

How I play:

My way to play is by walking on a trail, city, museum, shopping center, ocean, and mountain. Cooking is also playful for me especially, cutting and chopping vegetables, it’s therapeutic because of sweet and fresh aroma and various colors.


Secret revealed:

I have a best, beautiful, and beloved object that I cherish. That’s my transitional object which is a teddy bear, like Linus’ blue, security blanket. My teddy bear comforts me and warms me up.


Quoted saying:

To speak gratitude is courteous and pleasant, to enact gratitude is generous and noble, but to live gratitude is to touch Heaven.

-Johannes A. Gaertner



I have parents and four siblings who live in South Korea except my younger brother living in New York. My parents’ love is almost the same as God’s unconditional, endless, and sacrificial love for me and all family members. I loved my parents more than God and anyone else and put them first in my life. But now they are in the second place after God.



I had always been a teacher, teaching Art, Korean Language, Bible at Sunday school since I became a Christian. I also taught children with disability as a special education teacher in New York State for about three years before I entered into the ministry. What I have learned from the students having disabilities is that if we love someone, we try to imitate the person even though there is a disability. I am sure if we Christians love Jesus, we try to follow and imitate what Jesus does for us although we do have infirmities.
