Eugene Cho

i am called to be a fisher of fish…

Just wanted you to know that I’m heading off for vacation with my family. Because of the ruptured achilles, we had to scratch the original plan of my dream of RV’ing around the States but perhaps another time. But, we are still doing a road trip (via Yellowstone National Park) and I will be spending most of my time enjoying my wife, the kids, and doing this (click on pic to see that huge beauty):

I will fish, catch, and release…cast, ruptured achilles and all. I will not be stopped because this man needs to decompress.

So, having said that, I won’t be blogging for the next couple weeks.  I may however (if I have internet access) post some pics of my prize fish catches. I’m also using this vacation to develop my new hobby of photography and may post some pics via Twitter – if you choose to follow me there.

I packed one book: Christ Plays in Ten Thousand Places by Eugene Peterson.

See you in two weeks.

    Need your counsel. We would like to begin a ministry to new immigrants to our country in northern new jersey. I would appreciate suggestions of ministries to visit and talk to anywhere in the country. Blessings, Luis

    The fishing part doesn’t sound fun. But the decompressing and nature and family–that’s a riot.

One Day’s Wages

My Instagram

Father - daughters bonding (and freezing) time at the Seahawks game. Grateful to the Panthers organization for the tickets. Now, go Hawks. Pound the Panthers. The family that karaokes together stays together. #ChoFamilyKPopFamily Family time in one of my favorite cities in the world - especially when the exchange rate is so favorable. Thank you, Vancouver, for being such a great refuge for our souls for the past 20 years. #QuestVancouver It's the day after...that day.
Be grateful. Again.
We woke up. We're alive.
Breathing. Dreaming.
Pursuing. Embodying. Loving.

It's never that perfect or easy but that we get to try to do these things is reason enough to be grateful to the One who gives us life.

Yes. Be grateful.
That you, Jesus.
#PreachingToMyself This is what real life looks like after a crazy couple weeks. Grateful for this woman. I love her. She's gonna scream at me for posting this pic. #ThoseSocksThough Grateful for the opportunity to encourage 2500 youth leaders & pastors at the @youthspecialties conference in Cincinnati, Ohio. Had prayed for wisdom to encourage leaders and courage to navigate a word for leaders post election about empathy and compassion for the unseen, marginalized, and those experiencing real fear.

Also, what a joy to have my church's youth pastor, @cobycagle, also here teaching. Some years ago, I was a youth pastor for several years in California, Korea, NY, and NJ. They were meaningful years but filled with challenges and loneliness. Sometimes, I felt unseen and insignificant - in comparison to "real" adult ministry. As a lead pastor now, I want to make sure I don't make those mistakes of overlooking our youth and children's ministry and their volunteers and staff. 
Pastor Coby, Pastor Katey, Pam, Jalle, and Jasmin: We see you. We appreciate you. We are grateful for your presence and leadership at Quest and beyond. Thank you and all of our amazing volunteers
