SMASHED SAINT (Janet Jun) is a poet, writer, multimedia artist, and missionary. Janet has a deep passion and commitment to serve and equip creatives in every field as beacons of God’s love, mercy, truth and justice both locally and internationally.
Born in Southern California, Janet received a B.A. in English from Barnard College (2001) and an M.A. in Korean Studies from Columbia University (2008) after working in the non-profit arts-in-education sector at the Teachers & Writers Collaborative in New York City for two years.
After finishing her graduate degree, she spent the next several years serving at Blessed International Revival Center as the Creative Arts Director, completing trainings at Blessed’s School of Ministry and the House of Prayer Orange County. She’s shared the gospel through spoken word, art, music, prayer ministries, and has been active in community arts outreach and one-on-one mentoring and teaching. Janet has shared and taught her craft at various local and global venues, including Biola University, Faith on Demand’s SPEAK!, The Seed LA, Triple Threat Mentoring, Blessed Worship School, B2B Peru, JUCETV, and P4CM’s Rhetoric (2013 & 2015)—America’s largest spoken word event.
In 2017, she was commissioned by Blessed International Ministries (BIM) as a missionary to Asia and relocated to Seoul, Korea, where she served locally as the worship director for Ocean City Church in Hongdae, as well as ministered internationally at different churches, conferences, and global gatherings. She also served as Creative Director for the 2019 Comeback Tour, a multi-network arts & music initiative to bring youth in Asia back to Jesus.
In 2020, she and four friends co-founded the Regenesis Guild, which exists to connect and establish creatives and educators as transformational global leaders.
Ms. Jun currently continues serving in Korea with BIM and in the creative, educational spheres through Regenesis. She loves her family and friends, her flock of chickens, good coffee, and wholesome delicious meals shared with loved ones.
