Frankie Hyoungjin Kim
Frankie Kim was born and raised in South Korea before moving to Canada in 2009 to study theology and pursue his dream of becoming a pastor. He initially planned to prepare for missionary work with his wife, but he felt called to start a pastoral ministry instead.
In 2015, he graduated from Tyndale Seminary in Toronto and moved to Pelly to begin his pastoral work. For seven years, Frankie and his family witnessed God's great work in Pelly. They found that the town offered more opportunities for ministry than Toronto, including visits to Bible camps, Bible colleges, and the local First Nations Reserve. Recently, they began a new pastoral role at Yorkton Alliance Church.
Frankie is a dedicated student of theology and the Bible. He has earned a Master of Theological Studies in Biblical Green concentration from Tyndale Seminary (2015), a Master of Theology (Anabaptist Discipleship: Progressive Sanctification and the Role of Community) from North-West University in South Africa (2022), and he is currently pursuing a PhD in Historical Theology at the University of the Free State in South Africa.
Outside of his ministry, Frankie loves music and is skilled at playing several instruments. He also enjoys watching historical dramas and Marvel films. He is happily married to his wife Minju, who works as a pharmacy assistant at Canora Pharmacy. Together, they have a beautiful daughter named Choah, who is currently in 8th grade. Overall, Frankie is a devoted pastor and scholar who is committed to serving God and his community through his ministry and ongoing studies.
After completing degrees at Ambrose and University of Calgary, Jennifer moved to Yorkton to marry Dean and they have made Yorkton Alliance their home since February 2010. Jennifer joined the staff team in August 2017 and is passionate about discipling our children and youth so they, too, will have a dynamic faith in Jesus. Dean and Jennifer have 2 boys together. Between them, they also have 4 adult children and 10 grandchildren. When not at the church, Jennifer enjoys baking bread and other goodies, and is easily coaxed into cards or board games, or just sitting around engaging in deep conversations.
