‘Room for the Gospel’ in South Korea

NORTH RICHLAND HILLS, Texas — Church members gathered in the Dallas-Fort Worth metro recently to discuss missions in the South.
South Korea, that is.
The College Hill Church of Christ hosted the fourth annual Korean Mission Forum, featuring longtime missionary Malcolm Parsley.
Parsley discussed the ongoing work in South Korea and the influence of Buddhism there.
Stephen Wolf, a member of the Fairview Heights Church of Christ in Illinois who has worked in South Korea, spoke about future mission possibilities there.
The Asian nation of 48.9 million souls — about 6,800 miles east of Dallas — has experienced tremendous growth among Christian groups, Wolf said. An estimated 50 percent of the country’s population claims some form of Christianity as its faith.
But “the Churches of Christ are still rather small, with some 120 congregations scattered throughout the nation,” Wolf said.
“There is tremendous room for the Gospel in Korea,” he added, “as many key cities still do not have a local Church of Christ, not to mention the opportunities that will exist in North Korea in the future.”
