Born in Seoul, Korea and immigrated to the US in 1975 David realized that the airspace of the United States needed defending, so he joined the USAF in 1977. After shedding the fatigue uniform, he aspired to be a dentist, but had made the mistake of attending a revival at a Korean American church. The Holy Spirit hit him "like a train", thus leading him on the spritual journey into Chrisitan ministry. David attended a seminary in New Haven, CT. He was later ordained in the United Methodist Church. David is married and has one son, Daniel. David enjoys camping and sleeping in tents. He plans to see all the National Parks before he becomes too creaky in the knees.

Ruth has been a long time (30 years) member of St. Andrews. In April 2011, after Ruth retired as an Executive Assistant for the City of Sacramento, she put her skills to work as a part time secretary in the church office. Her grasp of the mission and ministry of St. Andrews, her sense of humor, and people skills are truly an asset. As one pastor stated, “She's invaluable.” Amen!
