Pastor Joe  &  

Pastor Soo Ji

Co- Pastors

 

Joe and Soo Ji are a unique clergy couple who are being used by God to reach people in the margins, bring reconciliation to the community and raise up passionate followers of Jesus Christ. They are both ordained with the Free Methodist Church and feel called to serve and lead the church body through co-pastoring. They desire to see a fresh movement of God’s Spirit evidenced by churches that are engaging places of worship, discipleship and transformation.  Joe and Soo Ji have a strong call to urban and cross cultural ministry. They believe that local churches should reflect the diversity and ethnicities of their communities in order to reach all peoples with the whole gospel. They love spending time with their two Mexirean kids and exploring Riverside.
