Six pastors serving Canadian Korean Christian Reformed churches gathered in Calgary, Alberta, this summer for continuing education and mutual support, with an emphasis on spiritual revival and leadership for healthy church growth.
“This program is very helpful to check my current church’s situation and also gives direction for the next steps,” said Rev. Jong Phil Oh, pastor of New Life Korean CRC in Abbotsford, British Columbia.
After 30 hours of training over three days, Rev. Sung Soo Kim of Love CRC in Kamloops, British Columbia, highly recommended the program. “It is an intensive education,” Kim said. “We are often lonely leaders in Canada, but we shared our burdens as well as our visions for the future.”
Kim added, “I am here to learn a lot with my fellow pastors. This continuing study and fellowship is very much needed for other remote pastors.”
