Ministry to and with the children...


Our Story

our history  
Children's Ministry Initiative is a response to the growing needs communicated by various areas and levels of ministries within the Korean United Methodist Churches in America.  As the ministries within the Korean United  Methodist Churches and the English Ministries churches grew, the UM Council on Korean American Ministries recognized the need to strengthen and promote the area of children's ministry in the local churches.  

In 2009 through the Korean National Plan, Children's Ministry Initiative was launched.
