To Korea with Love

400px Korea love 2The Church in South Korea is inspiring. With a fraction of the population of America, it is the second largest missionary-sending country in the world just behind America! Korean Christians are some of the most passionate of any in the world.

Nevertheless, only 30% of Koreans express faith in Christ. Korean Christians are working hard to reach their fellow citizens. One of the effective means of reaching Koreans with the Gospel is through English language learning.

Myungsun Presbyterian Church, just outside of Seoul, has an extensive outreach through English ministry. The key to their success is an annual summer English Camp in South Korea and a Summer American Immersion here in the Pacific Northwest. Warm Beach Camp partners with Myungsun to send a team of 15-20 American youth and adults to South Korea to work with them in ministry. And each summer, 30 Korean young people attend a week of Warm Beach summer camp as part of their American cultural experience.

This year, the Warm Beach Camp mission team will serve in South Korea August 1-14, 2017. They will join 20 Korean young people who will rapidly immerse the team in Korean culture and build effective teamwork. Once oriented, the team will join Korean hosts in ministry to the homeless, English day camp at a local church, and a week-long English Camp. The experience is truly a ministry immersion with our Korean hosts.

English Camp is a multi-level ministry to campers, high school students, and young adult partners. It combines English language learning with camp-style games, crafts, music, and sports. Along with ministry to elementary-age campers, Korean and American High School students enter a leadership track where they will assist with the camp and spend time in Biblical leadership studies led by the US Team Pastor.

The Warm Beach Camp mission team recruits eight adults (18 yrs+) and 8-12 teens (ages 14-18). The adults lead English classes and are mentors to the teens on the team. American team members also lead or assist with activity rotations such as games, crafts, and music. Curriculum and activity guides are provided.

The Lord always reaches deeply into the hearts of his people as we go and engage in the work He calls us to. Saying “Yes” to Jesus when he calls us to go is the first step in a journey of transformation.

Ultimate Love

“There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” John 15:13 NLT https://bible.com/bible/116/jhn.15.13.NLT A time tested favorite game on the front lawn of Cedar Lodge is Ultimate Frisbee.  The name speaks for itself.  Two teams. Each has a clear goal where points are scored.  Offense and defense are involved.  Play with 10 people or 100 people, it doesn’t matter.  There is no better form of Frisbee with a group of people. We all have ideas ...

Do Right, Love Mercy, Walk Humbly

“No, O people, the Lord has told you what is good, and this is what He requires of you: to do what is right, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God.” Micah 6:8 NLT https://bible.com/bible/116/mic.6.8.NLT There’s a real challenge going on in the world.  It appears at many levels that we are losing interest in God. I see it in campers who are coming to Warm Beach Camp. Many have no knowledge of God, the Bible, and ...

God Is My Example

“Imitate God, therefore, in everything you do, because you are his dear children. Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ. He loved us and offered himself as a sacrifice for us, a pleasing aroma to God.” Ephesians 5:1-2 NLT https://bible.com/bible/116/eph.5.1-2.NLT I have had the privilege of watching generations of families come through Warm Beach Camp and Conference Center. Each generation seeks to be unique, and yet, often times I see the example of the previous generation ...
