Alumni connect in Korea through Ministry and Teaching

There was a BU alumni meeting at Yonsei University in Seoul, South Korea. Dr. Seong Jung Joo (Th.D in Liturgics and Mission from BUSTH), Dr. Soo-Young Kwon (M.Div from BUSTH, Ph.D in Religion and Pychology from GTU, Berkeley) and Dr. Charles Farhadian (Ph.D in Anthropology and Mission from BU Religious Studies) gathered after Dr. Joo preached at Yonsei chapel last week. Joo is the senior pastor of Juan Presbyterian Church, which is one of the largest congregations (so-called Mega-churches) in South Korea, having 30,000 member and 70 associate pastors. Dr. Kwon is professor of pastoral theology at United Graduate School of Theology, Yonsei University and director of Yonsei University Center for Counseling and Coaching Services. Dr. Farhadian is professor of world religions and Christian mission of Westmont College and teaching at Yonsei University for this semester, while taking his sabbatical year. They had a wonderful time together, sharing their lives and work.
