About-

Grace Korean Church (GKC) was established in 1982 by David Kwangshin Kim in Fullerton, California. From the very beginning, Kim led the church into a robust missionary engagement, which is being continued and even intensified by his successor, Paul Kihong Han. Throughout its three-decades of history, the church has invested more than 50% of its total income to supporting and maintaining its mission operations (with more than 250 missionaries in close to 60 countries). This book investigates the theological motivation for GKC's missions: pneumatological missiology, theology of revival, diaspora theology, Reformed theology, Presbyterian theology, and mission theology. The book also shows the extent of the church's mission engagement by continents. Finally, the book turns its attention to the future with an evaluation of the church's missionary journey

Endorsements & Reviews-

I recommend this book because Pastor Yang wrote it under the auspice of Oxford Centre for Mission Studies in England as their visiting scholar. The book has enough merits to be trusted from a missiological perspective. The start of GMI's world mission and its entirety are well explained in this book. I hope to see the whole world coming to know more about the world mission of GMI through this book.
David Kwangshin Kim
President of Grace Ministries International

Called Out for Witness offers a systematic study and interpretation of the missionary engagement of this remarkable congregation. Anyone wishing to keep abreast of the shape and direction of Christian mission in the contemporary world will want to take account of this original and ground-breaking book.

Called Out for Witness by Taichoul Yang is an inspiring case study of the amazing missionary journey of Grace Korean Church in Fullerton, California. In 2013, the church had 256 missionaries serving in 58 countries. It has applied 50% of its annual income to support its missionaries and their mission activities since its inception three decades ago. It has ten seminaries and one missionary training center on various continents producing thousands of pastors and missionaries.. This is a must read to learn how a single congregation can become a powerful instrument of global outreach.
Tetsunao Yamamori, Senior Fellow, Center for Religion and Civic Culture, University of Southern California

This book is a deeply insightful examination of one congregation, the Grace Korean Church. This book is about a kind of church that is perhaps unique to Korea. A church whose raison d'etre is proclamation of the Gospel where it has not been proclaimed.
Jonathan J. Bonk, Executive Director Emeritus, Overseas Ministries Study Center, New Haven,
