My name is Kook Ho Kim. I grew up in Seoul, South Korea. I got my Master of Divinity degree from Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary in Evanston, IL in 2015. I became a provisional Elder in 2015 and a full Elder in the Wisconsin Annual Conference in 2018. 

I have worked in two churches after graduating from seminary. First, I was appointed to First UMC in Kenosha as an associate pastor, and then I was appointed to Upper St. Croix Parish. I will be working at Upper St. Croix Parish until the end of July. I am proud to say that both of my ministries have been fruitful and successful.

I am married to my awesome wife Ran Yoo. She is an ordained Elder in the Northern Illinois Conference and is currently serving with me as co-pastor at Upper St. Croix Parish. She will be starting her new ministry at New Horizon UMC in Orfordville, WI. We were so glad that both of the churches (Brodhead & New Horizon) are close.

We have a bossy toddler, Caleb Y. Kim. He was born on June 1, 2017 and recently turned two years old. His favorite toy is a green John Deere tractor with a farmer!

My passions in the ministry are:

1. Maintaining the church with spiritual health

2. Growing the church spiritually and physically

3. Reviving our next generation (children, youths, young adult) in faith

4. Outreach & Missional work in our community, in our nation, and in our world

I can’t wait to start my new work with you at Brodhead UMC. Let’s pray for each other even though we are so far, and I will see you soon! Love you in Christ.
