Yun Kim

Organist and Music Director


Yun Kim by Tina Gutierrez 28Hi, I’m Yun (pronounced as yoon) who has been serving Christ Church since 2000.  It is my great privilege and pleasure to play our beautiful organ every Sunday, as well as working with many talented musicians in our parish, especially our dedicated choir members.  I believe that music in worship is another form of prayer which expresses adoration for our loving God.  I encourage anyone at any musical skill level to contact me if you are interested in serving in our music ministry.
