South Korea: Korea National District held an installation service for Rev. Yoon, Moon-gi last 22 May 2022. Rev. Yoon, a senior pastor of Anjung Church of the Nazarene was elected as the 8th District Superintendent at the 67th Korea National District Assembly last April. He will serve in this capacity for the next three years.

Rev. Kim, Seok-nyeon of Korea Evangelical Holiness Church was the guest speaker during the installation. He challenged the new DS with three things. “First, build friendships with your co-ministers. Second, be a ‘hope’ for the small churches. And lastly, show reconciliation to the Korean church,” he urged. He also encouraged with the words “I will be by your side. I will be your strength.” Rev. Kim is also blessed with how the Church of the Nazarene as a denomination is being a holy universal church with true communion of saints united by the Holy Spirit.

Rev. Shin Min-gyu, former district superintendent expressed his gratitude by saying, “God helped us and all the members of the Church of the Nazarene in Korea helped us to finish our term well.” He also encouraged Rev. Yoon to accomplish the new vision God has given him.

During his inaugural address, Rev. Yoon, Moon-gi shared, “From the beginning until now, I am nothing. I am a person with many weaknesses without His grace. Please pray that the One who has always been ahead of us will guide me. I will build friendships, will be a “hope”, and will show reconciliation.”
