Andy Kim
Associate Pastor
Andy came to San Francisco in 2015 as a step of faith. Though his plan was only to stay a couple of years, God had different plans. He met his wife Jane while serving at church and together they have called San Francisco their home. Before SF, Andy graduated from Northwestern University with a major in economics with the desire to make it “big.” He spent 7 years in corporate strategy in downtown Chicago. Responding to the call to ministry, he also began seminary at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Chicago while serving as a youth pastor. After surviving 7 brutal winters, he moved to SF and finished his Masters of Divinity at Fuller Theological Seminary. He has a heart for the city of San Francisco to see God redeem the broken and the lost. In his free time, he enjoys eating and exploring different places in the city. More importantly, he and Jane spend most of their time chasing after their son Caleb and their daughter Cassia.
Marie Kim
Children's Ministry Pastor
Marie graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Liberal Studies (Elementary Education) from Biola University. A month after graduating, God called her to Mexico where she served for 7 months. During this time, God carefully restored her identity as a child of God and called her to children’s ministry. As soon as she returned to the United States, God faithfully opened a door for her to serve as a children’s pastor in San Diego while simultaneously earning a Master’s degree in Teaching at Biola University. After 3 years of witnessing God’s grace and kindness in ministry, she was then called to South Korea to serve as an elementary chaplain and 2nd-grade teacher at a Christian international school. During her 2 years in South Korea, she has witnessed the power of the gospel and the beauty of trusting in the Lord. Recently, Marie moved back to California and serves bi-vocationally as a public school elementary teacher and CM pastor at Radiance. In her free time, Marie enjoys traveling, going to cafes, and taking pictures of the people she loves!

Her current focus is discipleship and inner healing as God leads her to empower and equip women in their faith journey.
