Churches Commemorate Centennial of North Korean Revival

Christians are expected to gather at two New Jersey churches to mark the 100th anniversary of the 1907 Pyongyang Great Revival, which helped spread Christianity throughout Korea.

Sponsored by PSALT, a nonprofit organization that mobilizes prayer and advocacy for North Korea, the two-day prayer and worship conference is to be held Jan. 12-13 at the Korean Community Church of New Jersey in Englewood and the Chodae Community Church in Norwood.

The centennial celebration is to include prayer for renewed revival in the closed, communist nation and will feature international speakers, including missionaries to Korea and the children of missionaries who ministered during the 1907 revival.

Leaders of PSALT—which stands for Prayer, Service, Action, Love, Truth for North Korea—say the Pyongyang revival surpassed similar moves of God that occurred in Wales and India as it swept across Korea within six months leaving no area untouched. As a result of the outpouring, some began referring to Pyongyang as the Jerusalem of the East. Centennial organizers said services will be presented in Korean and English.
