Oh and his wife, Pearl, were teachers in the Philadelphia area before moving to Deerfield, IL for seminary training at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. It was there while under the training of Paul Hiebert, that they received a call to global mission with a particular vision for reaching Japan with the gospel.

In January 2004 the Oh family returned as missionaries to Japan and founded CBI Japan.
Oh has spoken at conferences, churches, and schools around the world including Urbana 2009 and Desiring God 2009/2011.
Oh first became involved with the Lausanne movement by participating in the 2004 Forum for World Evangelization in Pattaya, Thailand. He delivered the keynote address at the 2006 Lausanne Younger Leaders Gathering in Port Dixon, Malaysia, and joined the Lausanne Board in 2007 with a particular focus on developing younger leaders within the movement.
Oh has contributed to three books including Living and Leading Like Jesus 2006, Finish the Mission, and the ESV Global Study Bible. He has also written extensively for Desiring God and Salt and Light Magazine in Seoul, Korea.
Oh is a fifth generation Christian on his father's side. His parents, Sung Kyu Henry and Young Lee Oh, along with his older sister Tina, immigrated from South Korea to America in 1970.
