PodCast Interview: English Church Services In Seoul

I grew up in rural Iowa, in a small town of only 1,200 people, and while I've never thought of myself as religious, I've attended quite a few church services. As a child, I usually spent my summers participating in our local Methodist church's "Vacation Bible School," and I also spent a year going to Catholic school where I learned about confession, first communion and how to recite my "Hail Marys."

While living abroad the last five years, I've enjoyed visiting churches in Germany, South Korea and Colombia to make friends and compare my new experiences with those of my childhood. After finishing the Peace Corps in Colombia and moving back to Korea earlier this month, I returned to the English speaking church group I used to frequent to catch up with old friends. I met some of my best Korean friends playing percussion in this small group's praise team more than two years ago, and it was great to be able to sit down with my old friend Anna Chung about the history and current status of Samil Church's "International Fellowship."

Samil Church is located just a short walk from the Sookmyung Womens University subway station. For more information, visit or search for "Samil Church" on Facebook.
