Long Bio:

Mihee Kim-Kort is an ordained Presbyterian (PCUSA) minister with degrees in divinity and theology from Princeton Theological Seminary and English Literature and Religious Studies from the University of Colorado in beautiful Boulder. Currently, she juggles various jobs including being a wife to another Presbyterian minister, raising three children, ministering to college students as the staff person for UKIRK @ IU, youth ministry on the side, itinerant preaching and speaking, writing, struggling with being an Enneagram 7, rabble-rousing in Bloomington, and liking too many posts on Facebook and admiring people on Twitter and Instagram.

Born in Seoul, Korea, she and her parents immigrated here shortly after her birth. Settling in Colorado, she was baptized in a Methodist church before her family joined the local Korean Presbyterian (PCUSA) church. It was here that she learned the faith from an African American, who was a respected Elder and teacher in the church, and from a little old lady that was the wife of the former pastor of the white Presbyterian congregation that shared the building with the church.

During her undergraduate studies she skipped many classes to snowboard, checked out lectures from radical and interesting writers and teachers, and joined various Christian fellowship groups. It was during this time, and then in seminary that she began to experience a shift from traditional evangelicalism to a progressive, inclusive Reformed faith focused on God’s Good News in the here and now as expressed through justice. She’s always working out what all that means exactly, and especially whether or not she should call herself an evangelical.
