Rev. Dr. Robert Kim

City Network Advisor

Robert serves as an Advisor to immigrant church planters. As an Asian American whose grandmother came to know Christ through the work of Presbyterian missionaries in South Korea, Kim felt the missionary impulse while in high school in the States. In seminary he “came to see that missions was everywhere, not just overseas,” and he began to focus on church planting as a form of missions. This led to the planting of Gracepoint Church in Philadelphia, which he pastored for 12 years while also overseeing the planting of a daughter church. He later served as Coordinator of the Metro Philadelphia Church Planting Partnership, where he provided guidance, training, and resources for church planters in five presbyteries of the Presbyterian Church in America.
