Our missionaries are normal people from all walks of life who have dedicated their lives to serving and following Jesus wherever He calls them. Want to meet them? Check out our Missionary Directory.
Word of Life Korea is a mission with an emphasis on evangelizing and discipling youth. Youth ministry is the last priority of most Korean churches. There is a really serious problem among Korean youth. Most full time youth pastors in Korea are only ‘there’ as a ‘stepping stone.’ We need full time workers for the youth in Korea. I think adolescence is the most important period because I know the most valuable decision in my life, receiving Jesus, happened in my youth.
Word of Life Korea focuses on preparing Asian church leaders through : LCM(local church ministry) camps, bible clubs, discipleship training bible institute & missions outreach.
My name is Jack Jang. My father did not make much money when I was young, and my mother had to work full time at a pig farm. This built a strong desire in me to make a lot of money.
I often thought about how to make a buck as I grew and after high school, I decided to learn English. I thought since few spoke in English in South Korea, I might be able to make good money if I spoke in English. And that’s how I met an American missionary. I attended a discipleship school of Word of Life Korea, to only learn English, not Bible. But God works from there. As time passed, by God’s grace, I changed through the work of the missionaries. One day, during the Bible study with the American missionary, I truly believed Jesus nailed my sins on the cross and I couldn't stop crying. At that time, I knew I had to have salvation in my heart and life. I repented of my sins and turned to Christ. Soon, I realized that making money was no longer my main goal in life. Furthermore, I wanted to study the Bible. The missionaries in Korea directed me to Word of Life Bible Institute in New York. After studying at Word of Life one year I transferred to Lancaster Bible College in PA. Now I’m working as a full time missionary with Word of life Korea.
An American missionary changed my life and I came to America to study God’s Word. Now I’m working with my people. Because Jesus was willing to die for us, we gladly serve together.
