Midwest Hanmi Presbytery

Nongeographic

The oldest church in the Midwest Hanmi Presbytery is Hanmee Presbyterian Church, which has 51 years of history. Compared with the history of the PC(USA), this may seem a short time. However, if we consider the circumstances surrounding Korean immigrant congregations, this history is quite remarkable.

In celebrating its 50th anniversary, Hanmee Presbyterian Church proclaimed a year of jubilee in 2014. It planned activities in which the people of the congregation had the opportunity to share the love that they have received with others. In particular, the congregation provided considerable support for mission conferences and the shared mission activities of the presbytery. We request prayers that other congregations in the presbytery may share a similar grace.

In 2014 Midwest Hanmi Presbytery organized a joint presbytery mission trip to Honduras over a two-week period. The trip was especially meaningful due to the participation of other presbyteries in our synod. Adults were involved in medical mission and ministry to the poor. Students taught English at the Christian school founded by missionaries and held vacation Bible school during the weekends. The trip was a meaningful shared mission activity in which the love of Jesus Christ was experienced by all participants. It became for all far more than a simple visit-and-serve trip.

Midwest Hanmi Presbytery serves 19 congregations and their 2,625 members.
