Lisa Hornsby is our church pianist and choir director.
Lisa began playing the piano as a very young child, with her goal always being to play in Church. That goal became a reality when she was just 14 years old, playing for various military chapels during her father's career in the Army. Why Church? "I figure that God blessed me with the ability to play, so it is only fitting to use that gift in a way to honor Him."
She has been married to her husband, Roger, for 35 years, and together they share 3 children: Brad (McKenzie), Jessi (Logan), and Taylor. The Hornsby's have also been blessed with two grandsons, Colton, and Landon.
In her spare time, she enjoys teaching private piano lessons to young and old alike throughout our West Point community
Rev. Jeongin Kim was born and raised in a Methodist family in South Korea and came to the United States in 2012 to pursue graduate studies in theology. His original plan was to go back to Korea after finishing his studies, but God had a different plan!
God called Rev. Kim to be a pastor when he was serving in the Korean Marine Corps. “Come, follow me, I will make you a fisher of people (Matthew 4:19),” was the Scripture that led him to follow God’s call.
Rev. Kim graduated from the Methodist Theological University in Korea (Bachelor of Theology & Master of Theology), the Yonsei University in Korea (Bachelor of Art), and the Boston University School of Theology (Master of Theological Studies), and the Virginia Union University School of Theology (Master of Divinity).
He was ordained in the Seoul Annual Conference of the Korean Methodist Church in 2010 and transferred his membership to the Virginia Conference of the United Methodist Church in 2016. He was recognized as a full-member at the 2019 Virginia Annual Conference in Roanoke.
In 2019, Rev. Kim was appointed to the West Point United Methodist Church in the York River District. He strongly believes that this is the place God sent him.
Rev. Jeongin Kim has a passion for serving God’s people as a shepherd leader. He enjoys visiting, and having meaningful conversations with people. He is honored to carry God’s unconditional love through the ministry of presence. Now, Rev. Kim is serving with the US Army Reserve as a chaplain and wants to help the soldiers who have PTSD.
Rev. Kim has his “suitable companion,” his wife, Mijung (“MJ”) to whom he has been married since 2008. They have four children – Seongjun (“Jun,”), Seoyeong (“Yeong,”), David, and Matthew.
Rev. Kim loves books, music, swimming, hiking, and traveling with family. His name “Jeong-in” means “righteous and generous.”
