New Interim Associate Pastor for FPC!
The Rev. Esther K. Choi will join us in September as Interim Associate Pastor working in Adult Education and Outreach at FPC. She is looking forward to serving our congregation and discerning together how God is at work to grow us for the future.
Esther is from Dallas, TX, and has been involved in some sort of ministry since middle school, whether it was singing in the choir or leading children, youth, or college students. Prior to attending Fuller Seminary, she was the Associate Youth Director at First Presbyterian Church of Houston. Her first ordained call was in San Angelo, TX, where she served as Associate Pastor of Christian Education and Mission. When her husband Phil got accepted to medical school, they moved to Arlington, TX, and she became the interim associate pastor and later the parish associate at FPC Arlington. Most recently, she was an interim at Community West Church, a church plant of Third Presbyterian in Richmond.
Esther is married to Phil, an anesthesiologist at Hunter Holmes McGuire Veterans Hospital, and they have three children: Allison (10) and twins, Bailey and Bennett (8). When she's not going on adventures with her family, Esther’s next favorite thing is sipping chai tea and spending long hours with friends talking about the real stuff of life.
Join us in welcoming Esther to FPC!
