Get to Know Laura McGahey

Hi, I'm Laura McGahey. I minister in South Korea.

Ministry Description

I am a teacher and the Dean of English Academics at SYME (School of Youth Ministry in English) Korea. My ministry primarily focuses on training and discipling young men and women to love God and His global mission. The other part of my ministry is building our students' English ability so they will have another tool for their own personal training and ministries.

About Laura

I grew up in a Christian home to two loving parents devoted to children's ministry. As such, I was immersed in the Word of God from an early age. I prayed "the sinner's prayer" when I was 3 years old. Yet, when I entered middle school, I began to critically think about the world and did not see the God I learned about in Sunday School lining up with what I saw. This caused me to doubt and turn away from Christianity. Other religions did not give me the answers I was searching for, and I despaired over the state of myself and humanity. It was not until my sophomore year of high school that the the God of the Bible showed Himself to me and gave me the simple reassurance that all my questions could be answered in Him. So I stepped out in faith and followed Him. He led me into leadership ministry at my youth group. He then asked me to follow Him to Bible college, then to short-term missions. My second year of Bible college, He called me out farther into long-term missions. Each step, I grow more and more confident in who He is because I see Him work in impossible situations. Jesus Christ is the Yahwah of old and the only hope for the world.

1 Timothy 1:15-17 This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief. However, for this reason I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might show all longsuffering, as a pattern to those who are going to believe on Him for everlasting life. Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, to God who alone is wise, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.
