There, we received a lecture from a professor at a local seminary and an overview of the church’s structure and programs. It was overall a very informative time, in which […]

Simple vs. Complex (6/3/18)

By Nathaniel Choung Our Sunday consisted of attending service at Bupyong Methodist Church. We received a tour of the educational building and saw the youth and children’s services.

Reminded about prayer (6/2/18)

By Eugene Lee What I keep being reminded of this trip is the prayer. The early morning service is the one that definitely and consistently reminds me how vital the prayer is. Also, senior pastor of Bupyung Methodist Church testified how God has been working in his life and his ministry. He emphasized prayer and […]

What am I doing? (6/1/18)

By Nathaniel Choung Today’s highlight of the day was our visit to Odusan Unification Observatory that overlooks the Imjin River and the Han river between North and South Korea.

I Begin Here in Korea (5/31/18)

By Eugene Lee Our first full day consisted of a seminar of the history of Korea, and visits to various tourist sites in Seoul.

About NEXUS

Connecting Disciples of Jesus Christ to Transform the World

From the very first time Jesus sent out disciples to minister in His name, he sent them out tethered to other disciples (Mark 6:7).

We, at Nexus, have a core conviction that ministry was not meant to be done on our own.

Standing in the Wesleyan tradition, and confirming the Methodist emphasis of connectionalism, Nexus UMC is a ministry that seeks to connect the English-speaking disciples of Jesus Christ, who are of Korean descent and/or serve the Korean United Methodist Church.

We desire to network with one another and with our denomination not only for our mutual edification, but also for the world’s transformation, because we realize that there are things we can only do, or do better, together.

We desire to encourage the members, the ministers, and the missionaries within our denomination through our biennial convocation, regional networks, and our website.
