Adventist Faith EUM Foundation Officially Launched
November 22, 2020

 The EUM project, which was launched as part of the Adventist church’s “Hope 2020” future generation training project, has gone one step further with the establishment of the EUM Foundation. The EUM Foundation is a Christian community ministry that helps parents in their 30s and 40s become leaders of the church and pass on the faith to the next generation with support from churches, local conferences, the Korean Union Conference (KUC), and the Northern Asia-Pacific Division (NSD).

The Adventist Faith EUM Foundation (EUM) had a ceremony on October 25, 2020, at the KUC headquarters. The event included an opening devotional, a meeting of the general assembly, and the launching ceremony. In attendance to show support and encouragement of EUM were officials from the NSD and KUC, members of the Korean Adventist Women’s Association, and lay leaders. In addition, a special video was shown, with greetings and testimonies from EUM families in each region who could not attend due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The EUM project, which was formerly under the Family Ministries department of KUC, is now an independent entity as the foundation. In the future, EUM will carry out projects to nurture the next faithful generation, providing education, training, and scholarships for mission work. This ministry is considered a must-have project for the future Adventist Church. Throughout the project, step-by-step programs will be carried out to foster the participating families. It was stressed that, regardless of the session or the head of the foundation, the project should continue on the basis of stable financial support. An anonymous benefactor generously donated 100 million Korean won to show support for the project.

EUM began in 2017 with the aim of nurturing future missionaries who would express their joy to the world. To date, 141 babies have been accepted into the EUM project. Let’s support our young families to “train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it” (Proverbs 22:6, NKJV).
