District Superintendent

Mi Hyeon Lee
I was born in South Korea and grew up in a Methodist family. My grandmother was the first Christian in my big family, and church was a big part of my life. I felt God’s call for ministry when I was in high school and was active in youth group, young adult ministry and adult ministry in Korea. I earned a Bachelor of Theology and a Master of Theology degree from the Methodist Theological Seminary in Seoul, Korea, focusing on pastoral care.
 
In 1993, I came to the United States. I then went on to earn a Master of Divinity from St. Paul School of Theology and a Doctor of Ministry from Garret Evangelical Seminary, focusing on leadership. I have been in ministry for 24 years at the Missouri Annual Conference and have served Salisbury/Asbury in Chariton County, Antioch UMC and Wesley UMC in Springfield, and Central UMC, and First UMC (North Kansas City) in Kansas City.
 
‘Love God and love others’ has been my motto throughout my ministries. Love anybody in God’s love no matter who they are, where they came from, and what they have done and how they live. God loves the world, and we participate in God’s mission in the world. I believe when we love people truly, our ministry is joyful and fruitful.
 
The Bishop appointed me as District Superintendent for the Mid-State District in 2018 and the Mark Twain District in 2021. As I begin my ministry in the Mark Twain District, I look forward to getting to know the churches and pastors as well as having the opportunity to work together to revitalize churches in Christ’s name.
 
I have a son, Elinton, who lives in Boston, MA, and works at a cancer research institute while pursing medical school. I also have a dog who has been a great companion over the last seven years.
