So Nobody Walks Alone

Reverend Kenneth Suhr




Senior Pastor

Rev. Kenneth K. Suhr was appointed to Aldersgate UMC in July 2016. He first served Abundant Life Community of Korean UMC in San Diego for 9 years (1998-2007), was then appointed to Faith UMC in Torrance for 9 years (2007-2016), and hopes to reach the 10-year mark at Aldersgate!

He is the grandson of a Methodist pastor and professor and was born and raised in Southern California. After receiving his degree in economics from UCLA, he went on a two-month mission trip to a small, beautiful First Nations island off the west coast of Canada, Klemtu. Ken experienced the best two months of his life simply by building relationships of trust, helping as he was able, and sharing the love and hope of Jesus for all. It is on the island of Klemtu that Ken experienced the words of Isaiah 40, “soaring like an eagle” come alive in his life for the first time… and it is on the island of Klemtu that Ken received his call to full-time ministry.

Ken is married to Sunnie (1997), and they have four sons (two in college, one in high school, and one in junior high). They love eating good food together, playing sports, going fishing, singing praises, going on mission trips, and enjoying the company of good friends.

Ken is excited to partner with all who seek to bring the kingdom of heaven here on earth and to simply put a smile on Jesus’ face day by day.
