The Kim Family

Our Story

Reflecting on the years since 1996 when God called us to plant HMCC of Ann Arbor, we can’t help but be filled with a heart of privilege, thankfulness, and amazement at God’s faithfulness to our family and church community. We started the church in 1996 with a desire to join God in fulfilling the Great Commission by “transforming lives and transforming the world.” Since then, we have witnessed the love and power of Jesus Christ in the lives of people from all parts of our communities and world. God has done immeasurably more than we had asked or imagined (Ephesians 3:20)!

The decision to move to Asia to start HMCC of Hong Kong came through a few pivotal moments and much prayer as a family. The first key moment was when our family went to Indonesia in 2009-2010 to start HMCC of Jakarta. Toward the end of our time there, we lifted up prayers of surrender. We felt that if God asked us to come back to Asia in the future, we would be available servants. The second key moment was when God spoke to Pastor Seth through several verses in the Bible through the Books of Acts and Isaiah. As we prayed through these verses, we knew that God was making His heart known to us about wanting us to “ripple out” beyond Ann Arbor to reach the world, and how Hong Kong would be a key, global city to influence Asia. The last key moment was when our kids came to their own conviction about Hong Kong. It was important that our kids were a part of the decision-making process, and that God spoke to them as well. After months of prayer and family devotions, God placed it on their hearts to go to Hong Kong. This is when we knew that we, as a family needed to move forward in faith.

Please consider partnering with us in prayer and/or with financial giving. Your investment will be used to reach more than 7 million people in Hong Kong and eventually, reach the 1.4 billion lost people in China. Already, we have witnessed people coming to know the Lord, getting baptized, and growing as disciples of Jesus Christ. Many of them are the first Christians in their families who are eager to share their faith with others. The harvest is truly plentiful here!
