Jacob Park's Family.jpg

We Welcome you

As for myself, I am Rev. Jacob Park, who is a provisional elder of the Florida Conference of United Methodist Church. I am now the pastor of this friendly and welcoming church and I've been privileged to serve this community since July 2019.  In my journey of ministry, I served two churches in South Korea as an education pastor for 10 years and three churches in the U.S. for 8 years. I also have the privilege to participate in and lead international mission trips to 27 countries. It was a great honor to experience God's world and people. 

I earned a master of Social Work degree and a Master of Divinity in South Korea. I also had a great chance to earn another Master of divinity degree at Garrett-Evangelical Theological seminary in 2015. Through the experience of the seminaries in two different countries, I was able to widen my perspective on God and God's people.
  It is an honor to serve First United Methodist Church of Gulfport, Fl and my congregation welcome everyone.


Hope and peace,
Pastor Jacob Park
