Our Pastor

In July 2015 we welcomed Rev. Sangman Shin from Olive UMC in Wahiawa Hawaii to be our Pastor at SMUMC. Pastor Shin was born, raised, and educated in South Korea. He emigrated to the United States when he was 22. He achieved a Masters of Divinity from Claremont School of Theology, and a Master of Theology from Fuller Theological Seminary. He has served as a USAF Chaplain since 1998.

Pastor Shin is married to Annie, and they have two children, Angel and Philip. Both Annie and the Pastor sing in our Church Choir. He serves our community with his expertise in counseling victims of domestic violence, as well as suicide prevention and marriage care.
