For six years, Rev. Jae Kun Lee and Lord’s Love Mission Christian Reformed Church in Bellflower (Calif.) have been working to help Korean-American couples to know God’s design for the family and to commit their lives for his purpose.
Participants in Lord’s Love Mission CRC’s family mission seminar.
Every spring, the church holds a seminar with the motto “Lord! I am a family missionary!”
Lee said, “In today’s world, Satan’s strategy is to destroy the families, even our Christian families. Family is a small church and church is a big family. If the family breaks down, the church will automatically break down too.”
He calls people to be family keepers, family watchmen, and family missionaries because “there are still many family members in Christian families who are not saved. They should be our immediate target group.”
Over three days, participants learn that God’s biggest interest is salvation for all family members. That is why they call it the Family Mission, rather than a family ministry.
For several years, Lee has also been writing articles for a family column in Christian Herald U.S.A., a Korean weekly magazine.
