ED & KELLY KANG
Pastor Ed (or "Pastored" as he likes to joke) and Kelly are the senior pastor couple at Gracepoint. Ed’s life was completely changed when a passionate young man with a guitar shared the gospel with him and his friends during their teenage years. He gave his life to Christ as a 15 year old, putting an end to his reckless teenage life. After leaving his successful career as a lawyer, he has been Gracepoint’s pastor for over 20 years and is serving in leadership roles at the Send Institute and KBEMF.
Kelly grew up as a PK ("pastor's kid") and seeing the difficulties of a pastor's life firsthand, she vowed to never be a pastor's wife and was content simply singing in the choir. Ironically, she met Ed at a church event while she was in the choir, and later became (surprise!) a pastor's wife, after leaving her engineering job at Sun Microsystems. Today she is a role model for women serving in ministry.
TONY & MICHELLE SUN
Praxis Ministry Directors
Tony and Michelle lead the Praxis young adult ministry and oversee InterHigh and the childrens’ ministries in Berkeley. You can always find Tony running a few miles in the morning around Alameda or Michelle heading out to the shoreline for times of prayer. Tony and Michelle know no borders when it comes to ministry, as they have served in Tokyo, San Diego, New Jersey, and now in Berkeley. Berkeley holds a special place for them as they both graduated from UC Berkeley, met each other in Berkeley, and it is also where they found their spiritual home for over 30 years. They have two sons, Stephen (who is currently serving at Gracepoint in Chicago) and Philip, who is a senior in college.
