Speaker: Carolyn Jung

Carolyn Jung is currently a teacher at Berean Christian High School, where she has taught for the last seventeen years. Her early years as a missionary’s kid in the Philippines gave her a distinctive view of life, as well as her years in America as a pastor’s kid. Carolyn met the love of her life at a relatively young age and, after a lengthy courtship, was married. They have raised six children together. She once again became part of a pastor’s family when her husband, Gary, accepted the position of senior pastor. Her role as a pastor’s wife brought a new “hat” to Carolyn: director of theatre. For the past twenty-six years she has been a writer, actor, and director; both in church, and then later as Director of Drama at Berean. Her enthusiastic love for Jesus and all things theatrical has given her the opportunity to minister in a uniquely different way.
