It is my great delight to announce the launch of our newest international chapter, TGC Korea. I’ve had the privilege over the last six years to network with like-minded men who are committed to gospel centrality, primarily through City to City Asia. Last week, by God’s grace, we were able to establish a TGC Korea Council in Seoul with nine pastors from various denominations.
You might not be aware, but Christianity in South Korea is in serious decline, with a little less than 17 percent of the population claiming to be Christians. And only 1.7 percent of those in their 20s actually attend church. TGC Korea’s vision is to carry out the mission of TGC by creating a platform—through editorial content and training venues—to equip Christians. We want to encourage many to move away from either soft-legalism on the one hand or easy-believism on the other.
Our staff at TGC Korea has been working tirelessly for the launch of our TGC Korea website. It is our desire to provide gospel-centered content for the Korean church and for Korean-speaking diaspora Christians. I’m also happy to announce that Don Carson, Phil Ryken, and Bryan Chapell will be joining me for our first TGC Korea conference, October 30 to November 1, 2019, in Seoul.
Please join us in prayer and help us spread the word about this new network, website, and conference with friends and family members who would benefit from such resources.
