A Success Story

Vision Korean United Methodist Church in Cambridge, Massachusetts
During the 2005-2008 quadrennium, major emphasis was placed on working in full partnership with annual conferences and general program agencies to develop Korean American ministries. This cooperative financial partnership is most evident in the $1,000,000 Matching Fund Campaign for Congregational Development implemented among the Korean American United Methodist churches. It had already exceeded its goal by March 2007.

One of the 15 congregations that were developed and supported by this plan was Vision Korean United Methodist Church in Cambridge, Massachusetts (New England Annual Conference). It was launched in the summer of 2006 with the pastoral leadership of Rev. Han Sung Kim,and it has become a vital and mission-oriented congregation with an average weekly attendance of about 100 in just about a year. It is expected to become a self-sup-porting congregation and chartered before the end of 2007. http://www.kumchurch.org.
