The Pastoral Staff
An extrovert by nature and pastoral counselor by training, Pastor John loves people. Many have sought his guidance to help them traverse the murky waters that our emotions and minds can often be. If you ever need to talk, no matter the struggle, he’s your man. It is safe to say that you are in good hands as Pastor John received his PhD in counseling at Princeton Theological Seminary.
Kee Won Huh
Pastor Kee’s dream is to sit in a cabin high atop a beautiful mountain range reading, writing and thinking his days away. Nevertheless, God has called him to be a pastor who uses his love for knowledge to help modern people navigate the intellectual maze that is the contemporary world. He loves all things sci-fi, including Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica and Firefly. So don’t be surprised to hear geeked-out references in his sermons.
In her heart-of-hearts, she is a missionary. She also loves investing in the education of our children. Combine both passions, and you have Pastor Patty, a person who believes our future generation is one of our primary mission fields. She is part of our Hackensack site's Mini Mercies children's program and its team of high-level teachers. When Pastor Pat is not at work, she is busy taking care of three babies at home—two growing and her husband.
Pastor Jen also has the bug to travel and educate the future generation of the faith! Often daydreaming about living overseas long term, Pastor Jen takes full advantage of Mercy Global's mission opportunities and has served in numerous countries. Her heart goes out to women—locally and around the world—and seeing them blossom into who they were meant to be, and a strong proponent in seeing human trafficking become something of the past. And if you need inner healing, she's your woman. Aside from being a superhero, you'll find her at Edgewater serving and pastoring one of her other great passions in life—children.
