Eunjoo Mary Kim is professor of homiletics and liturgics at Iliff School of Theology. Professor Kim has taught at Iliff since the spring quarter of 1999, in the areas of preaching, worship, and practical theology. Her scholarly concern is with the development of the theology and method of preaching and worship, relevant to contemporary ministerial contexts. Her research interest includes intercultural hermeneutics, race and gender issues, multiculturalism, and globalization. In 2009-2010, Kim was a recipient of the Wabash Small Project Grants for research on teaching worship from global perspectives. She also participated in the 2010-2012 Presbyterian Women (PCUSA) Racial Ethnic Dialogue.

Kim published three monographs and one co-edited book: Preaching the Presence of God: A Homiletic from the Asian-American Perspective (Valley Forge: Judson Press, 1999), Women Preaching: Theology and Practice through the Ages (Cleveland: Pilgrim Press, 2004), Preaching in an Age of Globalization (Louisville: Westminster John Knox Press, 2010), and Women, Church, and Leadership: New Paradigms, eds. Eunjoo Mary Kim and Deborah Creamer (Eugene: Pickwick Publishers, 2012). The coedited book is a collaborative product of her work with and for the church, including eight theological essays and responses to them from local church leaders.
