Greetings Hopewell Network—I am Pastor Jacob Kim, a Korean Outreach Pastor at Hopewell Christian Fellowship in Telford, PA. My wife and I, after a long time of seeking the Lord, started a Korean group in April 2015. We meet with this group three times a week to worship together, and we are currently working to plant a new church.
We pray that the church which we are planting will not be just another church, but one that is essential to this greater Telford/Souderton/Harleysville region. We pray that it can be filled with the Holy Spirit and, in turn, bring joy to God. Our vision is to be a place of Spirit-filled worship and a ministry of hope and healing to the hearts of people like that of the Hopewell Church.
The Korean Outreach seeks to spread this vision by beginning fellowship groups in the Korean language and culture which embody the values of the Hopewell Network of Churches.
Another Korean group also contacted me some time ago and asked if I would come and minister to them. The group consists of ten married couples and two single women. I am preaching to them three times a week, teaching one-on-one, and counseling them.
My short-term goal is helping and serving those who need help spiritually. That means I am cultivating a core group which may eventually become a church plant. We are going to begin another small group soon. We are still refining the vision of our own group, and we are making various plans for our groups to work together.
I am thankful to have been able to start this ministry through God’s grace. God led me to the path, and God works through me. Hallelujah!
