Vacancy Pastor Isaac Paik from South Korea had served as an ordained Presbyterian pastor last 13 years after graduating from Mater of Divinity at Knox College, Toronto school of theology in Ontario, Canada. While studying in the Master of Sacred Theology (S.T.M.) at Concordia Theological Seminary at Fort Wayne, majoring in systematic theology, he was fascinated by the confessional heritage that the LCMS has. He joined the colloquy program at Concordia Theological Seminary at St. Catharine in Ontario. He completed it and became eligible to serve as a pastor in the Lutheran Church-Canada in 2018. In the same year, he completed the S.T.M program. Now, he is studying in Doctor of Philosophy in Missiology at Concordia Theological Seminary at Fort Wayne. He has a diversity of pastoral experiences in Canada, South Korea, and Hong Kong.
Isaac met his wife, Terri, at the University of Toronto, where Terri graduated with a Batchelor’s degree in Environmental Geoscience. Pastor Isaac is happily married to Terri for 16 years, and the Lord has blessed them with Sophia.
