THE WORSHIP EXPLOSION EVENT
The event includes a concert in partnership with Pastor Cho at his YOIDO CHURCH, the largest Christian Church in the world with 735,000 members, as well as the concert at the DMZ border with Communist North Korea - the wall separating the only divided nation left on Earth since the fall of the Berlin Wall. This will be the first concert in history to ever be allowed in this restricted Military Zone. Each individual worship leader will also have a 60 minute mini-concert which will be taped for later release on video and CD.
KOREAN ÂDIASPORAÂ Â The Reunification of the Korean People
The event is part of a movement to heal the Korean people and bring about the geographical unification of Korea through the establishment of legitimacy for one nation, one language, and one history consisting of the people of North Korea, South Korea, and the Korean residents abroad. The 'DMZ' was established at the end of the Korean War over 50 years ago. Since that day, many families have been divided with absolutely no possibility of communication whatsoever.Christians in North Korea are persecuted, jailed, and have been killed simply for expressing their Faith in Jesus. The "Underground Church" in North Korea is thriving despite terrifying persecution-- and through highly secretive pipelines, they are aware off these efforts.
