Call to Worship: (Psalm 103: 1-5)

One: Bless the Lord, O my soul,
All: and all that is within me, bless God’s holy name.
One: Bless the Lord, O my soul,
All: and forget not all God’s benefits –

The Rev. Daniel Cho – Moderator 2018

Daniel Cho grew up in Toronto as a second-generation Korean-Canadian, providing him a unique lens through which to experience the faith-culture-generation connection. After his undergraduate and theological studies in the United States Daniel returned to complete seminary at Knox College and continued pastoring among the youth. For the next ten years he worked with teens and young adults in congregations, retreats and conferences. He returned to these roots as a main preacher at Canada Youth 2018at Brock University. For thirty years now, he has advocated for the rich ethnic diversity of the church and the fostering of closer connections among us. Currently Daniel is Senior Minister of St. Mark’s Presbyterian Church, a diverse congregation, and past moderator of the Presbytery of West Toronto. He is also a certified pastoral counsellor and certified mediator.

Daniel enjoys music, running and martial arts training. His wife, Esther, works in healthcare as a services coordinator and they have three adult children—twin daughters and a son. Daniel is an unabashed Star Trekfan and a lover of sweets.
