Peter Kim

Pastor Peter has served as senior pastor and elder of Berean Community Church since its inception in 1997. He committed his life to Christ on December 26, 1983, at 11 pm, and has been heartily laboring for God’s kingdom ever since. Rightly dividing the Word of God has been his priority as he shepherds the flock at Berean, and the church has been blessed and nourished by his faithful and powerful preaching.

He received his bachelor’s degree in biblical studies at Biola University and his Master of Arts in biblical theology at the Talbot School of Theology. He married his wife, Esther, in 1992, and they have four beautiful children — Jeremy, Zachary, Faith and Isaiah.
