More about Keynote Speaker Alex Jun:
Alexander Jun was elected moderator of the 45th General Assembly. Jun is a founding member and a ruling elder of New Life Presbyterian Church of Orange County in Fullerton, California, and the first ethnic minority elected as moderator of the Assembly.
Jun was born in Alexandria, Virginia. His father was a South Korean journalist for the Chosun Daily News who originally came to the U.S. in the 1960’s as part of the White House Foreign Press Corps covering the Johnson administration. The Juns later moved to the San Francisco Bay area.
Jun became a Christian during college at the University of Southern California. He grew in his faith through a campus para-church ministry called Korean Campus Mission. After college Jun joined with some of the Korean Campus Mission leaders who graduated from Westminster Seminary California, and together they started New Life Mission Church.
Jun earned his Ph.D. degree in Education Administration and Policy from the University of Southern California, his Master of Science degree in Higher Education Counseling from California State University, Los Angeles, and his Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science and Psychology from University of Southern California.
Currently Jun serves as a professor at Azusa Pacific University, one of the largest Christian universities in the U.S. He teaches courses on diversity and social justice in higher education as well as courses on qualitative research methods. In his teaching he helps students think about how issues of diversity and justice in the realm of higher education reflect larger trends in the culture and how the Christian faith impacts these ideas.
“Higher ed is a microcosm for what is going on in the world,” Jun said. “I infuse a Christian perspective into matters of social justice.”
Jun has been married to Jeany Kim for 21 years. Jeany is a professor of pharmacy at Keck Graduate Institute, part of The Claremont Colleges.
They have three children – Natalia, Isaiah, and Jeremiah. A family of music lovers, the Juns enjoy performing together. Jun plays the saxophone and guitar, and he also sings.
