Proclaim 2017 : A Global Conference
for Preachers of Redemptive History
Let Us Return to the Bible, 2 Tim 3:14-17
@ Pyungkang Cheil Church, Jumunjin Oceanside Church,
Pyungkang’s Yeoju Retreat Center
# 1 Korea, taking the lead in the Word of Redemptive History!
The 2017 Global Conference for Preachers of Redemptive History kicked off on October 27, Pyungkang Day, for 5 nights and 6 days. The conference is a training ground for preachers from around the world.
It celebrated its second year under the theme of "Let us return to the Bible (2 Tim 3: 14-17)" and was held in Korea at Pyungkang Cheil Church, Jumunjin Oceanside Church, and Pyungkang’s Yeoju Retreat Center.
Over 50 participants and volunteers started their conference journey at Pyungkang Cheil Church in Seoul, traveling to Jumunjin Oceanside Church, Jehovah-Jireh Retreat Center, and Yeoju Retreat Center. Upon their return to Seoul, everyone felt grateful for God’s grace.
Attendees encompassed a diverse group of nationalities, occupations, and ages, including deans of theology, university professors, doctors, lawyers, and over 50 pastors from 8 countries. Each, with different cultures and languages, unified together as members of the Pyungkang family and the words of Redemptive History.
12 lectures were conducted along with group discussions and presentations, praise prayers, and a visit to the Jehovah-Jireh Retreat Center. In addition, a special ceremony was held at Yeoju Retreat Center to celebrate the completion of the seminar series. All of the participants - instructors, attendees, and volunteers – were filled with peace and grace.
Due to the timing of this year’s conference, attendees had the unique opportunity to participate in several church activities unrelated to the conference, including worship service on Pyungkang Day, a Redemptive History Seminar for 2,000 people, and the main worship service on Lord’s Day at Pyungkang Cheil Church with the general congregation.
As we reflect on the conference, we wish to share the grace and sentiments experienced over those 6 days.
