James Hur is New City’s Children’s & Youth pastor. He was born in Korea but grew up as a missionary kid in Chile for 10 years. He then went back to Korea for another 10 years and decided to pursue a Master’s of Divinity at Fuller Seminary. At this time he met his wife and got married. He now is a father of 2 beautiful boys

His vision is to surround the children and youth of New City with a community of believers who care and love them. He believes in building a safe haven for them so that they can freely grow as believers and rely on the community in moments in need.

James loves to sing and run around with the kids and is willing to do what it takes to make them laugh
