The American Pastors Network (APN) is co-hosting the first-ever and largest Korean-American Prayer Meeting later this month in Washington, D.C.

APN is assisting the Yoido Full Gospel Global Network, the Christian Council of Korea, the Friendship Council of USA, the Korean Christian Council of the World and the Korean American Association of Washington Metropolitan Area to host the luncheon and prayer time from noon to 2 p.m. June 27 at the Washington Hilton, 1919 Connecticut Avenue NW.

Organizers will pray for peace on the Korean Peninsula and work to improve bi-lateral relations between the U.S. and the Republic of Korea.

"The American Pastors Network works diligently to support pastors here in the U.S., but also abroad," said APN President Sam Rohrer. "We look forward to this historic opportunity to interact with our brothers and sisters in Christ and pray together for God's protection and guidance for all those in positions of authority in the U.S. and Korea, and that He would grant peace on the Korean Peninsula."

Projected to be the largest Korean-American luncheon and prayer meeting of its kind, approximately 250 guests are scheduled to be in attendance at the event, which includes American church and civic leaders, members of U.S. Congress, Korean-American church leaders representing 42,000 Korean-American churches across the nation and a special delegation from the South Korean Church, along with a variety of civic organizations, which will be led by the Rev. Dr. Young Hoon Lee, senior pastor of the largest church in the world.

The event will be an opportunity to pray for a resolution over the looming nuclear issues in North Korea, for President Donald Trump and his administration as well as the newly elected president of Republic of Korea.

Stated Lee, "We [North and South Koreans] have been a divided nation for over 70 years and believe that only by praying together, and through God's grace, can we achieve peace on the peninsula."

The Rev. Peter J. Hwang of the Friendship Council of USA commented, "Korean-American Christians are very concerned about the current events on the peninsula and how the U.S. will respond; we will be praying for wisdom and guidance."

And added the Rev. Kwon Il Doo of the Yoido Full Gospel Global Network, "We hope that this Luncheon Prayer Meeting will be a historic moment for the U.S. and Republic of Korea to bring the two nations closer together and to contribute to world peace."
