Greetings! May our Lord Jesus Christ give you grace and peace.
Lord Jesus Loves Church was formed in 2001 in Bergen County, NJ, to be the light in the darkness, providing the right path for the lost. In 2023, we are launching anew to meet the needs of our neighbors and welcome multicultural worship.
The name 'Lord Jesus Loves' signifies He loved us first so that we may know Him and love Him in return (1John 4:19).
To accomplish the Great Commission to make disciples of all nations, we must first become disciples of Jesus. A disciple of Jesus holds a deep relationship with other believers. The depth of relationship one has with other believers translates to a deep relationship with God (See 1John 4:20). That depth of relationship occurs with a few people, just as Jesus demonstrated with His three and twelve. Discipleship is a life-on-life learning that persists over time. Only as we walk in discipleship ourselves, can we call others to discipleship.
35He sat down, called the twelve disciples over to him, and said, "Whoever wants to be first must take last place and be the servant of everyone else." 36Then he put a little child among them. Taking the child in his arms, he said to them, 37"Anyone who welcomes a little child like this on my behalf welcomes me, and anyone who welcomes me welcomes not only me but also my Father who sent me." Mark 9:35-37
The deeper and longer our relationship with God, the more people we will serve. Our leadership are to be servants of all, and our focus is deep relationships. Below are the paradigm we follow:
|2023||Renewed focus on meeting the needs of our neighbors and multicultural worship|
|2009||LJL Church acquires building in Ridgefield, NJ|
|2001||Lord Jesus Loves Presbyterian Church Incorporated. Begins in Hackensack, NJ.|
Pastor Sang came to America when he was five and grew up in Sunnyside, NY. He met Jesus in his sophomore year in high school (10th grade), and his life's direction was forever changed. He seeks to welcome people called to the marketplace to trust God and asks them to lead others to Jesus.
He married his college sweetheart, Jihyung, and has two children. They met at Binghamton University, where Pastor Sang graduated with a BS in Physics and a BA in Psychology. From there, he joined the United States Air Force as an officer and worked at the Headquarters of Air Force Special Operations, equipping the special forces with tactical unmanned aerial systems. He consequently received his Master of Aeronautical Science from Embry Riddle Aeronautical University and his first doctorate (Ph.D.) in business administration and management, specializing in aerospace technology while working in Fortune 500 companies in engineering management, mergers and acquisitions, and technology leadership.
Today, Pastor Sang continues to provide technology leadership services, but his main drive remains to form relationships to welcome others to Christ. He received his Master of Divinity (M.Div.) from Alliance Theological Seminary, Doctor of Ministry (D.Min) from United Theological Seminary, and Doctor of Theology (Th.D.) from Kernel University. He is ordained with the Evangelical Church Alliance (ECA). He teaches at various seminaries, especially regarding discipleship and spiritual formation. You may also find him teaching graduate-level cybersecurity courses in schools such as NJIT. His books include "Our Highest Calling" and "Dependence Prayer."
Pastor Sang focuses on those in their 20s, 30s, and 40s, the missing gap in today's church, those who are working, getting married, starting a family, and making the most critical decisions for their lives and the lives of their children. He wants to change the trend of broken families and teaches men to love their wives, even giving up their lives for them because authentic leadership is serving others.
By the way, he loves to eat—anything meat. Why not call him out and share your life's experiences with him?
