Cambodian Ministries Pastor
Kim serves as our Pastor to our Cambodian congregation. Originally from Cambodia where he served in the Army Force during Lon Nol’s regime from 1970 to 1975, Kim was sent officially to the United States as a First Lieutenant in order to train in the Instructor Development Branch of Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas. Kim had been trained there for only one month when Cambodia collapsed and was taken by the communist Khmer Rouge. Thanks to the grace of God, and the faithfulness of his new sponsor, the Deer Creek Mennonite Church, Kim found a new home in Iowa, where he first discovered the love of God. With this congregation, he was both baptized and married to his lovely wife, Savang in 1976. Since then Kim has served in a number of ministry leadership roles, both in Iowa and in Lowell. Early in 2002, Kim sensed a calling to pastoral ministries. Partnering at that time with the Lowell First Church of the Nazarene, Kim has served as the pastor of our home-mission congregation, the Lowell Cambodian Church of their Nazarene. As a bi-vocational pastor, Kim is also faithful in sharing the Good News of God as he produces a weekly Cambodian Christian television show (CCTV) in the City of Lowell via Lowell Television Communication (LTC). Kim and his wife have three wonderful children and several grandchildren.
