It is my sincere hope that the Korean churches will benefit from memooc in effectively equipping Christian workers to address the diversified needs of today’s mission fields.” (Sung Geol Chun, Director of EWC USA)
“God has been using the Korean church as flag bearers of the evangelism movement to reach out to the non-western areas. However, many missionaries, Christian workers and churches are facing barriers due to lack of sufficient mission education. East-West Center is providing the MEMOOC Program with a goal to provide highly accessible, fine quality online mission education. I hope that you will be able to join us in this endeavor through prayer and donation, and actively use memooc to address your missional ministry needs. Thank you.” (Timothy Kiho Park, Director of EWC International)
