Missions Ministry

Purpose

The Mission Committee:

  • Maintains contact with supported individuals and ministries
  • Prays for supported individuals and ministries
  • Provides input to Session and staff regarding missional concepts and their implementation
  • Supports short-term mission activities
  • Provides feedback to the congregation regarding PEPC mission activities
  • Generally is tasked with administration and allocation of the PEPC Missions budget

Using this overarching biblical model of Acts 1:8, the Mission Committee initially defined the geographical regions that represent Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and the ends of the earth.   Then, the Committee intentionally identified individuals and ministries that are active within these regions.   After extensive research, interviews with missionaries and clarification of their roles in the mission field, a supportive relationship was proposed with our supported missionaries and ministries.  Documents were drawn up defining the relationship with the missionary or ministry, including the amount and duration of support and the specific nature of their outreach.    The Mission Committee has established and continues to pursue personal relationships with each of the missionaries that PEPC supports.

In addition, the Mission Committee will continue to support, organize and provide resources for adult and student mission trips.  These trips have been of both long and short term duration, have involved church planting, medical outreach, building physical resources and providing clean water.

Upcoming Mission Events

CELEBRATE MISSIONS WEEKEND
September 27-29

Our special guest for Celebrate Missions Weekend is Pastor Chun Ki-Won, Founder of Durihana Mission and Durihana School.
In the late 1990’s South Korean businessman Chun Ki-won was visiting along the Chinese-North Korean border looking for new business opportunities. Little did he know he would be led out of multiple successful business ventures and into full-time ministry rescuing the world’s most forgotten people. While along the China-North Korea border he saw a North Korean woman frozen dead in the Tumen River. She died trying to escape her country by crossing the river comprising the border between North Korea and China. As he continued to walk around the city, scores of North Korean children scurried out of the shadows to beg bread, only to be beaten back into hiding by the Chinese authorities.

Upon seeing this, he left a lucrative business career, went to seminary and became a Pastor dedicating his life to proclaiming the grace of God to the North Korean people. The ministry began in Seoul, South Korea in the year 1999 with 25 people praying, weeping, and crying out to God on behalf of the physically and spiritually starved people of North Korea. From there God orchestrated events very naturally and began to open doors, simply calling his people to trust Him one step at a time.
Pastor Chun also runs the Durihana School where he cares for and educates upwards of 60 children of NK refugees who are not able to be raised by their parents for various reasons.
The meaning of the word Durihana (meaning “one”) comes from Ezekiel 37:17 “Join them
together into one stick so they will become one in your hand.”  It’s the mission of Pastor Chun to bring NK refugees into safety in South Korea, in hope that someday the divided country may become one.
We are looking forward to Pastor Chun being at PEPC and sharing more of his story with us! Email missions@pepc.org if you have any questions
