Eugene is an ordained minister and has been in Christian ministry for over 25 years. After spending 17 years helping build a church from a young start-up into a large established one with multiple locations, he discerned it was time to step outside the familiar in order to reimagine church and spirituality from the ground up. In 2020, he founded a non-profit organization called New Wine Collective with a mission to make spiritual community more accessible to all.
Eugene is New Wine Collective's chief architect of ideas and connector of dots. He is passionate about designing an alternative approach to "church" that will leverage technology to help heal the world and radically change the social and spiritual landscape. At the same time, he is also just a pastor at heart who cherishes walking alongside people in their spiritual journeys.
Eugene grew up in Queens, NY, attended High School in Seoul, Korea, and now lives in the Greater Boston area with his wife and three children.
