EM Pastor: Soo Hyun Lee
Pastor Soo Lee was born in South Korea, and moved to America at two years of age. He grew up in a non-Christian home and never went to church until he was invited to church in high school. He heard the good news of Jesus Christ for the first time and soon after, God saved him and called him into pastoral ministry.
He holds degrees from Lancaster Bible College (Bachelor of Science), and Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary (Master of Divinity).
He has served as an assistant youth pastor at Church of Philippi in Hanover, Maryland from 2012 to 2016 and as a youth pastor at First Korean Baptist Church/Living Hope Raleigh from 2018 to 2020.
He is passionate about the Gospel and the impact it makes on the lives of people, raising up and developing leaders and disciples, athletic shoes, and movies. He resides in Raleigh, NC with his wife Eunsu (Bella).
Children’s Ministry Pastor: Aaron Bradley
My name is Aaron Bradley and I serve as the Children’s pastor for living hope Raleigh FKBC.
I am a 3rd year student at Southeastern Baptist theological seminary working on my bachelors and masters in pastoral ministry.
I am originally from Dallas Texas and have been serving in church ever since I was a youth, starting with volunteering for AWANA, I eventually would go on to serve as a camp counselor for children’s and youth ministry, a youth group 9th grade and 10th grade teacher and eventually be called into ministry in my mid 20’s. I have been a member of FKBC for about a year now and I am so excited to see what God has in store for this Childrens ministry!
I hope we can teach the next generation to know the Gospel, how to live a new Christian life, and how to know their bible!
