Leadership & Staff

Meet Our Leadership and Staff

As a non-denominational Bible church, Lone Hill Church is led locally by Pastor Sam Kim and a council of Elders.

Looking toward the future, our Elders have a vision to see that each member of Lone Hill Church would continuously experience the presence of the Lord: Christ in you, the hope of glory…Christ…in all (Col. 1:27; 3:11). We live for Him as He lives in us. We want everyone here to constantly experience His presence as Savior, friend, deliverer, lover of our souls, and Lord. The Christian leadership at Lone Hill Church is working to equip our congregation to experience His presence both personally and continuously. It is the key to growing and maturing in Christ.

We hope you will come and visit and by the Lord’s leading join us in this great adventure of faith!

  • Sam Kim – Sam has served as the Senior Pastor and as an Elder since November, 2021.

The Elders’ Vision Statement

The Elder Council has adopted a vision statement as follows: That each member of Lone Hill would be continuously glorying in Christ and living in His presence through faith, worship, and obedience.” Colossians 1:26-28 reflects this goal of living in the presence of the Lord:

“…has now been manifested to His saints, 27 to whom God willed to make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. 28 We proclaim Him, admonishing every man and teaching every man with all wisdom, so that we may present every man complete in Christ.”
