Publication of the First Issue of the Mission Day Magazine
March 05, 2012

On February 10, 2012, the first issue of the Mission Day magazine was published to introduce the Mission Day Program. It is one of the mission projects in the Northern Asia-Pacific Division (NSD). The magazine is also published to promote and encourage Mission Day activities in church organizations and institutions in the NSD. The magazine is published in four different languages: English, Korean, Chinese, and Japanese.


WHAT IS MISSION DAY?


Mission Day is a day set aside by denominational organizations to emphasize mission and evangelism among faculty and staff members. It is to help all the workers to renew their mission/evangelism spirit and provide them opportunities to participate in mission/evangelism activities. The Mission Day Program was started in 2004 to set aside a day for direct mission work bythe institutional employees in the NSD.



Dr. Jairyong Lee, the NSD President, congratulates the publication of the first issue and said, “According to the mission statement, all church institutions have a mission to preach the everlasting gospel which is written in Revelation 14:6-13 to every nation, tribe, language, and people.” He also emphasized that all institutional workers should be an example to other church members by participating in evangelistic work.


Pastor Kwon JohngHaeng, the NSD Mission Day Coordinator, said, “The participation of institutions in the Mission Day Program will be vitalized through the magazine. If all church institutions in the NSD mark a day for mission and share at least 200 copies of evangelistic tracts with their neighbors, the Three Angels’ Message will be reached to more than 2.5 million people.”



The magazine was distributed to all church institution presidents during the NSD Leadership Summit held in the Philippines on February 13, 2012. It was also sent to all institutions in the NSD. There are 177 church institutions, both big and small, and 12,600 employees. We hope that the mission work in every institution can be vitalized and the mission spirit of the institution workers can be inspired through this magazine so that the Mission, which is the reason and purpose of the existence of church institutions, will be accomplished.
