Olivet Welcomes Rev. Jon Lee

Jon Lee will be coming on board as Olivet's new Assistant to the Pastor in the second half of 2021.

We count ourselves blessed to have secured the services of a pastor with many years of experience, and one who is already familiar with Olivet, having served here many years ago before returning to his home country, South Korea. Jon is in process of immigrating to Canada, and we don't know for certain when he'll be able to begin work at Olivet, but we hope that he'll be able to join us sometime this fall. He will be filling the vacancy left by Rev. Jared Buss's departure for the US.

Jon Lee has served several congregations in the US, Canada, and South Korea for the last 23 years, and has enjoyed every opportunity to meet new people and to experience diverse culture. In addition to his M. Div. degree from Bryn Athyn College of the New Church, he holds a doctorate degree in philosophy. He is interested in Kant’s moral theory, Confucianism, and Daoism. He has four children.

We're thrilled that Jon will be joining our team!
