Growth Groups

A Growth Group, formerly Sunday School, is a structured series of sessions where growth-minded people come together to grow faster together than they could apart. Led by our facilitators, these groups are great for building momentum in the spiritual growth of everyone. Lessons help individuals become closer to God, Jesus Christ, and the church family. Children and Youth are provided opportunities to learn about Jesus by safe sanctuary trained volunteers.

Nursery ( Birth – 3yr) 

Children learn about Jesus through interaction with loving caregivers.

Preschool – Elementary

Classes grouped by lower and higher elementary.


Make friends and learn about God in a fun and relaxed setting.

Meet Our Pastor

Joseph (Hyun-Soak) Park

Joseph was born and raised in a Christian family in South Korea. In 2006, he came to the United States with his wife Mimi (Mihyun) Lee for further education. During his study, Joseph took an opportunity to get involved in church planting as a lay person, which led him to respond to God’s call on him.

In 2008, Joseph was admitted to Duke Divinity School in Durham, NC and completed his Master of Divinity program in 2011.

Joseph and Mimi have two children (Samuel and Sowon) who were born in the United States.
