What are the pastoral dynamics of multiracial and multicultural communities, and how will we care for our friends whose living experience is multiracial or multicultural? This forum will feature Princeton Seminary students Brian Rikimaru, Olivia Sandel, Taylor King, Rachel Johnson, and keynote speaker Dr. John Huh, who will share their experience and pastoral insight on this topic.
The Office of Multicultural Relations, the International Students Association, and the Religion & Society Program welcome all to join this virtual Forum on Faith, Culture, and Diversity.
Dr. John Huh, PhD '13, MDiv '06, is passionate and excited about the restoration and renewal of people's mental, emotional, and spiritual health. As a bilingual, bicultural Korean American, he is active in the community and academia as an ordained PC(USA) pastor, a counselor, and a professor. He received a BA (Psychology and Theology) from Boston College and his MDiv and PhD (Pastoral Counseling) from Princeton Theological Seminary. Previously, Huh served as a youth pastor for eight years. In 2010, he and two other co-leading pastors planted New Mercy Community Church, an emerging church in northern New Jersey with the vision to be a "church for the broken." Currently, he serves at New Mercy while teaching at New Brunswick Seminary and Princeton Theological Seminary. His research interests include pastoral care and counseling in the Asian American context, positive psychology, and church planting. As much as Huh enjoys serving in the churches and the academy, he loves spending time with his wife, Hannah, and his two kids, Benjamin and Noelle. For self-care, he prefers playing basketball, golf, and taking naps.
