Korean missionaries gather for second world missionary report

Cheonan, South Korea

Korean missionaries serving in 20 world areas gathered 7-9 October at Korea Nazarene University in Cheonan to report on their local ministries. This was the second time Korean missionaries have gathered for such an event, with the first conference being held at Asia-Pacific Nazarene Theological Seminary in 2013.

Attendees included General Superintendent Filimao Chambo, Global Missions Director Verne Ward, Korea District Superintendent Yoeng Soo Kim, the 35 missionaries who made reports, and several leaders of Korea District Nazarene Missions International, Asia-Pacific Region, and Korea Nazarene University.

Ward shared about the Nazarene mission policy, and missionary Timothy Kim spoke on the life of a global missionary. There were meetings with the field strategy coordinators, and the conference ended with a concert for the missionaries.

“As a young, new missionary, I personally had a good time with all the missionaries,” said Mireu Kim, a participating missionary. “The conference helped me to understand how the global church works together globally and locally.”
