Los Angeles Korean-American Church on “Olympic” Mission

| |

Since 1992, Ye-Eun Presbyterian Christian Reformed Church in Los Angeles, Calif., has been helping Chinese and Chinese-Korean house churches and people.

Led by Rev. Joseph K. Kwak , the congregation is currently supporting five home based missionaries, 15 Chinese house churches, 34 Korean-Chinese house churches, four Olympic Bible college students, and 10 Tong-Hwa Seminary student scholarships. Some of the people being supported are North Korean defectors. Through partnerships, their work will extend to the people of North Korea.

Volunteer lay leaders take two short-term missions trips each year to China, where their efforts assist village missionary teams with medical help and teaching the Bible.

Throughout this service, members rededicate their lives for God’s calling. With the Holy Spirit’s guidance, they continue to serve these Chinese and Korean-Chinese people, sharing the gospel of hope with those who do not yet know Jesus Christ, even to the people of North Korea.
