OUR REVIVAL SPEAKER, REV. M. J. KIM -
Born in Korea to the first Lay Leader in the Korean Methodist Conference, M. J. Kim came to the United States in 1957 to attend Ferrum Junior College. Continuing his education at Randolph-Macon College in Ashland, Virginia, he graduated in 1961 with a Bachelor of Arts degree. Recognizing the Lord’s call to ministry led him to enter Duke Divinity School in Durham, North Carolina from which he received a Master of Divinity Degree.
Received into the Virginia Conference in 1964, M. J. Kim was asked to serve a rural charge in Mt. Airy where he remained for four years. Various appointments followed. Greene Memorial UMC in Roanoke, Colonial Beach UMC, Park Place UMC in Norfolk and Dulin UMC in Falls Church; all in Virginia. In 1990 Bishop Thomas Stockton appointed him as Superintendent of the former Ashland District where he served for seven years. Following his term as superintendent, Bishop Joe Pennel appointed him to Aldersgate UMC on the Alexandria District in 1997 where he served for 5 years until his retirement in 2002. Currently M. J. Kim is serving as Director of the Asian-American Ministries of the Virginia Conference and Minister of Visitation at Regester Chapel UMC on the Fredericksburg District.
Naturalized in 1971, M. J. Kim was subsequently awarded the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution Americanism Medal for outstanding leadership and patriotism. In 1993 he received the “Distinguished Alumnus Award” from the Society of Alumni of Randolph-Macon College where he served on the Board of Associates. Also he was awarded a Doctor of Divinity Degree by Randolph-Macon College in June 1996. He is married to the former Dori Shepherd and they have two daughters, Sherie and Tonya, and three grandchildren: Olivia, Jacob, and Cosette.
