It is an honor and joy to join the community at Park Avenue United Methodist Church. I am Pastor Brian Choi, a graduate of Wright State University and Asbury Theological Seminary. I am a Korean-American, born in South Korea and moved to the US at age 15. I have a passion for dicipleship, evangelism, and mission because they reflect the Great Commission in Matthew 28.
I am happily married to Julie, my wife of 10 years. Together we have 3 wild and lovely children, Brighton, Johanna, and Havilah. In my 7 years of ministry, I have been affectionately known as “PB”, for Pastor Brian. If you include Julie, we are “PB&J”!
When I’m not preaching or leading, you can find me enjoying local hiking trails with my children, busily chasing after our most spirited child, Havilah. I also enjoy various kinds of sports especially basketball, football and soccer. As a foodie, I’m always looking for the next best place to eat. If you have any recommendations, be sure to let me know.
I am excited to get to know everyone at Park Avenue and even more excited to see what God has in sotre for the future of our community.
