Born and raised in Seoul, South Korea, KyungMo was a PK (pastor’s kid). He felt the call to ministry during his childhood, and found himself at Methodist Theological University, where he met his wife, SunAe, and graduated with a B. Th. After seminary, KyungMo served as a Marine Corps infantry officer at the DMZ for almost 3 years, during which he confirmed God’s strong call to save souls. KyungMo immigrated to the States, where he received his M. Div. from Wesley Theological Seminary and D. Min. from Princeton Seminary. He was ordained in 1997, and has served in cross-cultural/racial ministry for the last 19 years. Most recently, KyungMo served as senior pastor of Moore’s Chapel UMC for 12 years, and then moved to Reading, PA to serve at Lincoln Park UMC.
In 2019, KyungMo and SunAe were appointed to serve as co-pastors at a church called Christ. KyungMo and SunAe believe that God will use them to witness across racial and cultural boundaries, affirming that God’s mission and grace are available to all persons.
In his free time, KyungMo enjoys watching movies, going to the gym, and eating his favorite treat, strawberry milkshake!
