Sangamdong Church of the Nazarene in Korea is built upon faith as small as a mustard seed. As the Rev. Dr. Shin relates the stories of God s faithfulness to one small church that has grown into a large, mission-centric community, you will be inspired by the diligent faith of the people of God in Korea. Time after time, Sangamdong Church has faced budget crises or other struggles that threatened the life of the congregation, and yet the church has thrived and continued its efforts to bring the kingdom of God here on earth. Dr. Shin recalls with joy the many times he and his congregation have dutifully clung to A String of Hope when there was nothing else.
Dr. Min Gyoo Shin is the senior pastor of Sangamdong Church of the Nazarene. He also served as the president of Korea Nazarene University from 2012 until 2016. Dr. Shin holds two doctoral degrees, one from Kansas State University and one from Emory University. He is married to Mee Rhan Kwon, and together they have raised one beloved son.
