About us

Life happens, every day! Together we are discovering our purpose. Together we are learning that our lives may be filled with hope. Together we are getting to know the God of the universe with whom we may have a close relationship. The families of Little Southwest Baptist Church have a place around the table of faith for new friends. Together we are a family of families!

Pastor Les Somers is a “local boy” born and raised on the Miramichi.  In the fall of 2018, he was called to return to pastor his “home church” for the second time. 

Rev. Dr. Les Somers has earned degrees from Columbia International University and Liberty University, both in the United States of America.  His Doctor of Ministry degree was granted from Acadia University located in the province of Nova Scotia, Canada.  Dr. Les Somers, as a seminar speaker, has been welcomed into several countries of Africa, Asia, Europe and South America, as well as the United States and Canada.  His primary ministry, however, has been as pastor of local churches in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Alberta.  Pastor Les is devoted to Jesus Christ, the One Who has been his Lord and Leader since early childhood.  His greatest joy is to equip others to serve God with passion and skill.  It is also evident to many that he has been given a gift of preaching and teaching the Scriptures, with practical insight.

Occasionally Les takes the time to enjoy fly-fishing, canoeing and hobby farming.  Because of an abundance of hurtful accordion jokes, he now plays that musical instrument in private!  Be sure to take the time to get acquainted with our Lead Pastor.  He is looking forward to meeting you.

kyu choi
pastor of family ministries

thisiskchoi@gmail.com        (506) 836-7942

Born in Korea, raised in Thailand, and studied in the United States. Pastor Kyu has always been in the middle of the concrete jungle. Now, enjoying the view of the river, he welcomes the change of pace and is blessed to call Miramichi home. His journey to the Miramichi has been nothing short of a miracle and he would love to share the adventure with you.(It includes a dream!)

He has received his theological and ministry training at the Moody Bible Institute where he has earned both his Bachelors and Masters of Divinity. This is also where he met his wife!

He is currently serving as the Pastor of Family Ministry with the desire to build up families as pocket sized Kingdom of Heaven here on earth with gigantic impact for Jesus Christ.

Pastor Kyu and his wife, Rachel, have been married since 2015. They have one son, Simeon.

He enjoys coffee, board games, and likes to think he is an outdoors kinda guy.
