S. Korea on track to surpass U.S. in total number of Christian missionaries

Prominent evangelical leaders in the U.S. joined famous Korean pastors at the Korean World Mission Conference, the largest gathering of Korean missionaries worldwide, in the Chicago area this week to celebrate a critical milestone in the world’s fastest growing missionary movement.

Over 5,000 participants, including 2,500 Korean missionaries from 169 nations, attended the 2012 Korean World Mission Conference, held July 23-27 at Wheaton College in Chicago.

The number of Korean missionaries in 169 countries has exceeded 20,000 – more than doubling in 10 years. At this rate of growth, Korea is expected to surpass the United States as the top missionary-sending country in the world by the year 2020. …

The Korean missionary movement traces back to the late ’70s but it began its rapid growth in 1990, when 1,000 Korean missionaries were dispatched overseas. Today, there are approximately 25,000 Korean missionaries around the world, indicating a 2,500 percent increase in Korean missionaries in the past two decades.
