Mission pilgrimage korea 2020

The Mission Pilgrimage to Korea is designed for the active clergy and lay leaders of The United Methodist Church to experience the missions planted by American missionaries a century ago in Korea, as well as spiritual richness and prayer as the foundation of personal and collective spiritual renewal.

This pilgrimage will explore:

  • how American missionaries planted seeds for the growing Korean churches
  • how the spiritual awakening and prayer movement started in Korea
  • how Korean Christianity has influenced the community and society
  • what are new challenges and drives for global missions.

This event qualifies for 1.5 Continuing Education Units.


The Mission Pilgrimage to Korea will take place in Incheon, South Korea, where Henry Appenzeller, the first Methodist missionary to Korea, arrived on Easter Sunday in 1885. The participants will visit the places where missions started, schools and hospitals were built, and people have gathered into the churches, as well as the places where missions continue. You will also experience cultures and dynamics of new and old in Korea, and you will visit one of the unification observatories between the borders of South and North.
