Welcome Rev. Ed Park, Leading Worship April 29 

April 24, 2018

Welcome Rev. Ed Park to the pulpit this Sunday, April 29. Seattle native Rev. Park was born to Korean immigrants who arrived in the 1960s. He grew up attending a Korean Presbyterian Church where his father served as an elder. When he was 14, Ed felt a call to full-time ministry. A Baptist minister took interest in his development and mentored him through college. He was licensed in 1993 as a Southern Baptist minister and commissioned by the North American Mission Board in 2001 to plant Sanctuary Church in the Capitol Hill neighborhood where he continues to serve. Sanctuary recently entered a process to join the Presbyterian Church (USA).

Ed is also a state licensed mental health counselor with a private practice in Madison Valley. He attended University of Washington where he earned a degree in Philosophy and met his partner of 24 years. They home-schooled their two daughters, one who is now working on her Ph.D at Stanford; the other works in the midtown Manhattan, NY fashion district. Rev. Park earned his M.Div. from Western Seminary Seattle (aka The Seattle School of Theology and Psychology) in 1999.
