“One month’s salary” – Paster Young Joo Lee

As I shared with the congregation at the beginning of the year, in order to purchase a church building, I came to see a church building close to Tooting Broadway Station on the Northern Line, which had come out on the real estate market this week. The parish can accommodate about 170 people, but there […]

“I hope to see you in heaven!” – Cell leader Soorin Park

As mentioned in a previous testimony, I had not made the decision to attend Arise through prayer and I had ignored the urge to go when hearing it advertised. When I shared this with a friend of mine who was already planning on going, they invited me to the Arise group chat and that is […]

“The Joy of Sharing the Gospel” – Soon Jin Moon (Da Eun Nam Cell)

Last year, participating in ARISE for the first time was a huge challenge that needed a lot of courage for me as someone shy and introverted. Would I be able to handle this ministry well? Fear overshadowed me due to the burden of evangelism, but it was a time when the Lord refined me, and […]

“Things Seen When Evangelising” – Boa Kim (Park Hanna Cell)

Some of you may remember through my testimony last year, but ARISE programme was both a turning point and a new starting point of my faith journey. Among the many gifts and realizations that the Lord gave me through ARISE, what still deeply resonates within me is the understanding that ‘the Lord does everything from […]

“My trip to Korea” – Pastor Young Joo Lee

Perhaps it is because I am getting older, but I miss Korea. During my 16 years in England, I have visited my home country four times. Firstly, the price was never easy to handle due to our large family but also it was not easy to be absent from church. I am sure it is […]

“I want to resemble the personal God.” – Pastor Young Joo Lee

The word ‘personal’ may seem unfamiliar. However, I often use these words. ‘A personal relationship with God’, ‘God is generally a personal being.’, ‘We must respect others’ personhood!’ It might be a term commonly used in churches. Generally, it seems to be expressed as ‘consideration’ or ’empathy’. Human relationships are a daunting task in every […]

“Reason for Praying Without Ceasing” – Pastor Young Joo Lee

There is a famous quote by Martin Luther, who initiated the Protestant Reformation, when he was overwhelmed with tasks and responsibilities: ‘I have so much to do that I shall spend the first three hours in prayer.’ We know from our own experience that having more time doesn’t necessarily mean accomplishing more. When our minds […]

“I Want to Provide Comfort to our Pastors” – Pastor Young Joo Lee

Due to our church ministry and my young children, I was hesitant despite several offers to work as an executive member of the Korean Church Association (KCA). However, when I was pushed (?) to take on the role of president this year, I started with the mindset of doing my best within my capabilities. Thankfully, […]

“A Path not yet Taken, but will be Taken” – Pastor Young Joo Lee

There are movements aiming to transcend denominational boundaries across the world and unite as one for ministry, among which is the WCC. However, some considered that this organisation has significantly compromised the essence of the gospel. In response, a movement rooted in evangelicalism called the Lausanne Movement emerged. The 4th Lausanne Congress, attended by 10,000 […]
