Choi Family

Pastor Paul Choi & Family

From an early age, Paul was able to learn about the ministry firsthand from his parents. In 1987, his family was sent out as missionaries from Seoul, South Korea, to the United States of America to plant a church in the greater Los Angeles region. Growing up in his father’s church he faithfully attended services but found himself drawing further away from the Lord during his teenage and college years. After several detours in life, he trusted Jesus Christ as his personal Saviour at the age of 22.  Soon afterwards he surrendered his life to preach the gospel and to serve in full time ministry.

He received his ministerial training from West Coast Baptist College where he also began dating his lovely wife, Sera. For seven years, they served together at Bible Baptist Church in Gardena, CA as the youth pastor and church secretary before God called them to plant the Hillcrest Baptist Church in the Northwest region of Riverside County, CA. With much prayer and counseling, Paul and his family moved into the city of Eastvale and started the church on November 16, 2014.

Pastor Choi and his wife have three children (Noah, Natalie, Luke) and are eager to meet you and your family. Please feel free to contact him with any questions or just to say “hi.” He would love to hear from you!
