Stephen Kim

Steve Kim

Lead Pastor

Pastor Steve Kim grew up in Northern Virginia and attended Virginia Tech then went on to graduate from Biblical Theological Seminary. His ministry experience began in Philadelphia where he ministered for 16 years in various roles from youth pastor, associate pastor, and then as a senior pastor & church planter. Throughout that time, he felt a calling from the Lord to return “home” to serve in the Washington DC area. On August 1, 2010, Pastor Steve was installed as Lead Pastor of Great Commission Community Church. He is joined by his wife, Soo-Jin, and their three children: Josiah, Christian, and Abby. He has most recently stumbled upon his second calling as a coach for his sons’ sports teams and as a dance partner to his daughter. He is also an Apple fan and holds a hidden appreciation for fashion and art.

He is married with two children, and he enjoys a broad variety of music, books, and sports (if following the major sports teams of Wisconsin counts as broad).

Tracy Commons

Associate Pastor |

Tracy grew up in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, graduated from Cedarville University and went on to study at Biblical Theological Seminary for his Mdiv and MA in Counseling degrees. His ministry experience has centered around and been driven by his passion for spiritual formation and mission, with emphases in missional leadership, community life, and pastoral health. He has been deeply formed by his opportunities to be involved in church planting, teaching, discipleship, and shepherding ministry leaders in personal, relational, and church health. His other passions include playing golf, and hanging out with his amazing wife Jenna and their two young kids Will and Sadie.

Soo-Jin Kim

Soojin Kim

Children’s Ministry Director |

Soo-Jin Julia Kim, otherwise known as Sooj, grew up in Delaware, though she feels more like a native Philadelphian after spending over 16 years living there before coming to Virginia. She has a masters degree in Public Administration with a specialization in non-profit management and has a passion for building up the local church. She has worked in Children’s Ministry since her children were small and she has a desire to see the next generation become active disciples of Christ! She has three energetic and generally happy children, Josiah, Christian, and Abby. She also has a knack for cooking large amounts of food and likes all things that are cute and well packaged.

Jayne Belz

 Administrative Assistant | 

Jayne grew up in Baltimore, MD and attended Georgetown University. After graduation, she stayed in the area to work in administration and program management at Save the Children USA. Her career transitioned to Web Content Marketing in health/fitness, and she moved to Asheville, NC, San Diego, CA and most recently, Seoul, South Korea. She has served in various ministry roles like helping plant a church and as small group leader; she is excited to join and serve Great Commission Community Church. She lives in Arlandria with her husband, Dorian, and two young children, Leah and Andrew. She never says “no” to coffee, salty treats, colorful pens, and pretty stationery.
