Hyemin Bahk

Counseling Apprentice


Pointing people to the Lord is Hyemin’s lifelong calling. As a pastor’s kid who grew up in different cultures, Hyemin enjoys hearing stories of each person she meets, as she recognizes that everyone has been wonderfully created by God. Hyemin believes that the Lord uses all things for His glory, and she feels privileged to be able to walk alongside others in different seasons of life.

While serving in college and young adult ministry leading Bible studies and short-term mission trips, Hyemin saw how intentional discipleship affects relationships. As someone who’s been able to witness and experience the goodness of the Lord in her own life, Hyemin is thrilled to see how the Lord works in the lives of those around her. Prior to pursuing biblical counseling at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Hyemin worked in Human Resources in NYC.

Hyemin and her husband David reside in Los Angeles with a rescue dog named Marlowe. Hyemin is a huge foodie who enjoys coffee, tea, and deep conversations.

Grief and Our God

Grief is something I can count on as sure as I can count on the darkness setting in each night. As a counselor, grief is attached to many of the circumstances that bring people into my office. Whether it’s the grief of an unexpected loss, the sorrow of a broken marriage, or the sadness of a desire unfulfilled.

Prayer in the Process of Change

One of the most straightforward, and yet most easily overlooked tools we have in the process of change is prayer. Perhaps that sounds overly simplistic, and it may be depending on the complexities of one’s troubles.

Thanks & Thanksgiving

Our thankfulness must be rooted in the hope Jesus won for us at the cross, not in the status of our current circumstances. When we form our gratitude around the shape of eternity rather than the hardships and heartaches of today, we will see our thankfulness multiplied.

Reflections From the CCEF Conference

Last week the Fieldstone team had the opportunity to join with hundreds of other counselors and ministry leaders in Greensboro, North Carolina for the annual CCEF conference. Fieldstone’s Executive Director, Jonathan Holmes, currently serves on the CCEF Board of Directors, and was featured as one the speakers at the conference.
