Yohan Hong, 44, grew up in Seoul, South Korea, in one of the country’s oldest Christian families. His wife, Jenny You, 41, grew up in South Korea in a family of Buddhists.

Today, both are pastors in area churches — Hong at Oxford First United Methodist Church, and You at Ironaton United Methodist in Talladega. Both have a passion to raise awareness of the poor, the powerless, the marginalized.
