An Experience in Spirituality and Leadership
Sponsored by Discipleship Ministries in Nashville TN and Bupyeong Methodist Church in Incheon, Korea.
The Mission Pilgrimage to Korea is designed for the active clergy and laity 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 the Korean Christianity has influenced the community and society
- what are new challenges and drives for global missions.
