Dedication of Adventist Tent Church, the Lighthouse of the Gospel Downtown
June 29, 2017

Adventist Tent Church opened its doors at Seoul Station square in Seoul, Korea. The Seoul Station square is always crowded with people coming and going. The church is the result of the dedication of Mrs. Jeong EunSook and volunteer workers, who have expressed their love for neighbors in various ways, such as tract distribution, street evangelism, free haircut, and free meals.

At the dedication service on March 15, 2017, about 170 Adventist members and homeless people attended to pray that the church will be a lighthouse of the gospel sharing the love of Christ. At the service, Pastor Lee ByungJoo, Sabbath School and Personal Ministries director of Korean Union Conference, preached from Numbers 25.

He said, “There were Cities of Refuge in which the perpetrators of manslaughter could claim the right of asylum in the Old Testament era. The City of Refuge represents Jesus Christ, while a signpost to the refuge means a church. Please be the church helping people seek Jesus from their earthly sorrow, pain and poverty.”

“It was hard to find any Adventists who were doing mission work at Seoul Station square. I hope this church will not only be a refuge to the homeless, but also a place to share the truth. I hope the Holy Spirit will be with this work,” said Mrs. Jeong, reporting on the progress.

Adventist Tent Church at Seoul Station has worship service at 4:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. every Wednesday, and materials supporting the homeless are purchased with donations.
