Pastor Sam

Welcome to MVCY everyone! I am Pastor Sam and I am the youth pastor for our ministry. I am a simple guy, just a regular joe who likes to have fun, always open for some good grubs, and have a beautiful wife and 2 cutest babies (no cap). And I am here as a pastor not because I am any special but only by the grace of God, and that is what I love to preach 🙂

Enough about me and let me tell you a little bit about our ministry. MVC YM is the youth ministry (YM) in the local church called Maranatha Vision Church. The adult ministry is divided into Korean-speaking ministry (KM) and English-speaking ministry (EM) which exist as one church. Our ministry is for the middle school (6th-8th) and high school (9th-12th) students of both congregations. We currently have close to 80 students on our roster (2020-2021 ministry year). This includes students who attend our church with their parents and those without.

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age. (Matthew 28:19-20)

We welcome you all and hope to get to know each and every one of you very soon!
