PASTOR JOHN SONG //
Lead Pastor

Pastor John Song serves as the senior pastor at Marin Asian Community Church. He and his wife, Montha, were married in June 2002, and they have two children, Anavah, who was born in 2006, and Phinehas, who was born in 2009. He was born in Korea, but spent most of his life in Salt Lake City,
Utah.
 
Although he grew up in a Christian home and accumulated a lot of knowledge about the Bible and Christianity, he made a decision to never be a Christian because of his negative experiences in the church. It was not until he was 16 when he encountered God in a powerful way that he realized how much he is loved by Jesus Christ and responded in worship and obedience. Since then, he praises God everyday for his salvation and now strives to live in the strength He provides all for His glory.
 
In 2004, Pastor John received a B.S. at University of Utah where he studied history and intercultural communication. He also received a Masters of Divinity from Bible Theological Seminary in Philadelphia, PA. He is burdened to serve and reach all people in Marin County, but especially the Asian-American community. He sees his role in the church as the main teacher and the facilitator who can help each person of MACC discover their destiny and live out the unique calling God has designed them for.
 
You can also find Pastor John playing basketball, volleyball, guitar and video games.
 
PASTOR BRANDON WILBORN // 
Youth Pastor

Pastor Brandon Wilborn became the Youth Pastor at MACC in November 2015. He met his wife, Sharon, at seminary in Mill Valley, CA. They were married in 2007, and have two children.

Brandon grew up in a military family and spent many of his formative years in Hawaii. During high school, he was skeptical and ambivalent about faith until a powerful experience of God. It was still a long process of discipleship and surrender before Brandon became a Christian and fully committed to following Jesus.

A year after earning an English degree from University of Hawaii, he felt God calling him to volunteer in student ministries, and moved across the country to start that journey. Eleven years later, God’s path has led to a Masters of Theological Studies from Gateway Seminary, a stint as a volunteer youth leader, and finally beginning a new youth program at MACC.

Brandon is excited to share God’s glorious story with the middle school and high school students of our community, and to help them discover their place in it.

He loves cooking for family and friends. When his toddler and preschooler are sleeping, he also enjoys writing fiction, woodworking, and learning new things.

 
UYEN DO // Administrator &
Children’s Ministry Coordinator

Uyen Do was born in Vietnam. Her mom and siblings were sponsored to the United States after fleeing the Communists by boat in 1980. She lived in Michigan and Southern California for most of her life.

She attended college at University of the Pacific, where she studied Sociology and Biology. She was introduced to Jesus through Bible Studies held by Intervarsity Christian Fellowship and decided to follow Jesus her freshman year. Life has never been the same! Jesus gave her a purpose to follow Him and to help others know about His love and forgiveness for their sins.
 
During college Uyen also realized her God-given desire to help the poor and to teach children. Therefore, she worked at the Gospel Center Rescue Mission in Stockton, California for approximately 15 years. In her free time, she taught neighborhood kids about the Bible and helped them with their homework. She met Pastor John Song and his wife Montha when he came to preach at the Mission. They quickly became friends after discovering their similar passions to help the poor and to teach God’s love and forgiveness to others. Uyen joined the staff of MACC in August 2016.
 
Her vision for MACC Children’s Ministry is borrowed from Intervarsity Christian Fellowship’s mission: “To see the children of MACC transformed (through the Word of God); families, churches, schools, communities renewed; and world changers developed.”
 
Uyen’s hobbies include: seeking out any clean body of water to swim in or walk along, biking, and hiking.
