Joel Yoon is the founding and lead pastor of Gospel City. Joel planted Gospel City with the vision to see healthy gospel-centered churches in Korea. Itaewon is simply the first plant. The hope is to see a movement of healthy gospel-centered churches planted in Korea and throughout the world. Since God gave Joel this vision, he now has a new understanding of his identity. Instead of being a pastor for English speakers in Korea, he now understands his calling as a missionary to Korea. Joel is married to Sharon and have three beautiful kids together.
Joel is fundraising 1,000,000 KRW a month, which will be a portion of his salary. We believe one of the most important components for a church plant to thrive is the support from other Christians and churches. Please consider partnering with Gospel City by supporting our staff!
