James Shin


Currently serving as an Associate Pastor of Nasung KM (Korean Ministry) and Preaching Pastor of Nasung Adult English Ministry.  Graduated with a degree in History from CSULB and M. Div. from The Master’s Seminary.

Saved by the gospel of Christ at 20 years old and it has been a humbling and joyful 27+ year journey of discovering that I am a far greater sinner than I ever imagined but that Jesus is a far and away greater savior and that God’s grace is made powerful and complete in my weakness.

Married to Serin Shin and we have 6 children.  

My favorite color is light tan and my favorite animal is puppies.  I like serving the Lord,

hiking and playing basketball….

Bible Verse:  I am not ashamed of the gospel for it is the power of God for salvation for those who believe!

Books:  Prodigal God by Tim Keller, When I don’t desire God by John Piper, Les Miserables by Victor Hugo, Valley of Vision – Puritan prayers.

Quotes:  “Woe to me if I do not preach the gospel.”  “Preach Christ, die and be forgotten.”  “He is no fool to give up what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.”  “Go Lakers.”
