Ministry Description

Among the 13 divisions of the Adventist world church, there is one unique department that exists only in NSD - The North Korea Mission Department. It means that NSD has recognized the big challenge of proclaiming the gospel of God in the territory of North Korea.


Jesus said that And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come(Matthew 24:14). North Korea will probably be the last mission field on Earth before the Second Coming of Jesus.


It is time to change the paradigm of North Korea mission from - if God opens the door, then I will go- to -if we are ready, then God will open the door of North Korea.-


Pastor Oh has a vision for North Korea Mission is summed up in 3Ms - Masterplan, Missionaries, and Material. He will make a specific masterplan for North Korea Mission, raise more than 10 billion KRW and 1,000 missionaries including pastors and lay members.


He will never stop praying and putting forth this effort to proclaim the gospel to every individual in North Korea.
