Ministry Description

The ministry of WOL in South Korea is focused on evangelism, discipleship and leadership training in order to strengthen churches and to reach the next generation with the gospel. This takes place through student ministries, like camps and evangelistic events, an English immersion discipleship training program (SYME), a one-year Bible Institute on Jeju Island. Each of these areas compliments and feeds the others. Many students get to know WOL through our outreaches in local schools and churches and at camp. They can then attend SYME, learning English and youth ministry. Many students who complete the SYME program are then eligible to study at WOLBI Jeju for one year before transferring to do a 2nd year at WOLBI NY. While at WOLBI each of our students (Koreans, Japanese, Chinese, Americans, Canadians, etc) are involved in winter and summer camp. Many of the campers trust Christ and then later attend SYME and WOLBI. The goal of the WOL South Korea team is to evangelize and disciple young people who will be able to go into other Asian countries to do the same.

Country Description

South Korea, officially the Republic of Korea, and commonly referred to as Korea, is a sovereign state in East Asia, constituting the southern part of the Korean Peninsula. It shares land borders with North Korea to the north, and oversea borders with Japan to the east and China to the west. Roughly half of the country's 51 million people reside in the Seoul Capital Area, the second largest in the world with over 25 million residents.
More than half of the South Korean population has no religious preference. Of the rest, most are Buddhist or Christian. Today, freedom of religion is guaranteed by the constitution, and there is no state religion.
