James Han – Senior Pastor

Rev. James Han is the Senior Pastor of Redeemer.  Pastor James received a B.A. in English from U.C. Irvine in 1993 and Masters of Divinity from Westminster Theological Seminary of Escondido in 1997.  He is ordained in the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) and is an active member of the Korean Southwest Presbytery. Pastor James was born in 1971.

Pastor James lives in Torrance with his wife, Sorah, and their three children, Iain, Selah, and Nathan. He met Sorah while being a student at UCLA, and wants everyone to know that he is taller than her. During his free time, Pastor James loves watching his kids play sports, working out, and hanging out over a hot cup of coffee, which is one thing he cannot live without.  His personal hero outside of the bible is his preaching professor, Dr. Edmund Clowney. One thing that Pastor James most loves about the Redeemer church family is the sacrificial and giving heart of the community. Their generosity is something that never ceases to amaze Pastor James.
