Rev. Benjamin Kim

Lead Pastor (Austin) - benjamin.kim@hmcc.net
Global Leadership Team Member

Pastor Ben has been a member of HMCC since its founding. Over the years the Lord has placed within him a passion for teaching believers how to mature in their relationship with Jesus Christ and training them up to be Christ-like servant-leaders.

He moved to Ann Arbor in the fall of 1996 to pursue a Masters degree in Public Health after receiving his undergrad degree in Biology at Washington University in St. Louis. As he served as a small group leader and church coordinator at HMCC for four years, he received God's call to go into full-time ministry.

Since then, Pastor Ben received a Masters of Divinity at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. He married Susan Kim, who had also grown and served as a small group leader and coordinator in HMCC during her undergrad years and beyond. They have two sons, Isaiah and Joshua, and are now serving full time at HMCC of Austin.
