The dreams and promises from the times of cold and hunger brought the gospel to the world...

Hardships, difficulties, and freezing winters defined Pastor Park’s early ministry. Kneeling on the floor of an empty chapel, he prayed for food and coal. Yet, God guided him to a new world of promises.

As God fulfilled His promises, Pastor Park’s ministry blossomed. He established a missionary school and sent missionaries worldwide. He spread the gospel over the air and in print by broadcasting sermons and founding Good News Publications, Inc. Additionally, in 2001, he created the International Youth Fellowship (IYF) for young people, and in 2017, he established the Christian Leaders Fellowship (CLF) to foster global Christian connections. Through Pastor Park and his ministry, God’s will for the gospel to reach the ends of the earth is being fulfilled.

“The World to Seoul, Good News to the World” 

The success of the 1988 Seoul Olympics, accompanied by the slogan “The World to Seoul, Seoul to the World,” played a pivotal role in loosening South Korean government restrictions on international travel. The following year, passports were issued to citizens aged 45 and above. Pastor Park, who had just turned 45, embarked on his inaugural overseas missionary trip to the United States and Germany. Since then, he has sent ministers to over 100 countries, opening the way for the spread of the gospel to every corner of the world according to God’s will.

The Kenyan government does not usually grant religious registration to foreign missionary organizations, an important matter that sometimes demands presidential approval. Pastor Park solely relied on God, and in 1996, Good News Mission was miraculously registered, paving the way for missionary work in Africa. With the status of a recognized religious entity, the Mission built a broadcasting station and a college to spread the gospel nationwide.

Starting with the first missionary dispatched to Berlin in 1989, Pastor Park’s missionary school has trained pastors to share the gospel in over 100 countries worldwide. Despite their lack of knowledge of the local languages and absence of personal connections, they unwaveringly rely on God and courageously proclaim the gospel in the midst of adversity. Their endeavors are driven by the firm belief that God sent them, a certainty deeply instilled in their hearts by Pastor Park.

IYF (International Youth Fellowship)


Pastor Park founded the International Youth Fellowship (IYF) in 2001 to deliver hope, inspiration, and faith to youth worldwide. With the motto “Tomorrow About This Time,” IYF began with the change of heart of a young man named Andy. In 1993, Andy’s mother, who lived in Los Angeles, contacted Pastor Park for help when she discovered her son had drugs and a gun. After six months of mentorship, Andy’s heart was totally transformed, and he returned to LA as a completely different person.

The following year, 28 Korean-American students came to Korea for a youth retreat, followed by 58 students the year after. In 2001, IYF was officially incorporated, and with 500 participants, the first IYF World Camp was held in South Korea. It has grown into a global youth organization and international NGO with branches in over 90 countries.

Discovering the World of the Heart 

Pastor Park’s curriculum, called Mind Education, guides the youth from a life of darkness to light through Biblical wisdom. When China was facing serious youth-related social issues in 2009, the government invited him to deliver a two-day lecture to officials and parents. Afterward, a publishing house proposed to compile his lectures into a book in recognition of the significance of the content. This led to the publication of the first Mind Education book titled, “Navigating the Heart,” followed by a series of books and textbooks. The curriculum promotes deep thinking, the development of discernment, the exercise of self-control over desires, and the improvement of communication skills. Now, Mind Education is implemented globally in schools and correctional facilities, and recognized by several countries as a practical solution for youth-related challenges.

As IYF and Mind Education are presented as an improved alternative for youth character development, Pastor Park has had 61meetings with 41 heads of states in 30 countries.

Throughout six decades of ministry, Pastor Park has encountered countless individuals from different walks of life. He always prior- itizes preaching the gospel, even in meetings with dignitaries. When he shares the gospel, he always remembers God’s reason for orchestrating these meetings: “Who am I that God would allow me to meet the president? Surely God wants me to preach the gospel.”
