GREENVILLE, S.C. (March 19, 2018) – Bob Jones University will host world-renowned evangelist and broadcaster Dr. Billy (Jang Hwan) Kim and the Korean Children’s Choir Friday, April 6, at 7 p.m. in Rodeheaver Auditorium.
“BJU has hundreds of international students come through each year who enrich the culture of our campus and student body,” said Dr. Bobby Wood, BJU’s chief enrollment officer. “I pray that many of our students will be burdened the way Dr. Kim was during his time at BJU and will go out and make an impact for the sake of the Gospel.”
Kim earned a BA in Bible (1958) and an MA in New Testament & Theology (1959) from BJU and has honorary degrees from a variety of universities, including Biola University, Belhaven University, Campbell University, Myongji University, Northern Baptist Theological Seminary, and the Korea Baptist Theological University and Seminary.
Kim serves as Chairman of Far East Broadcasting Company-Korea (FEBC), a network of 11 radio stations that transmit the Gospel to China, Russia, Japan, and throughout Korea. In 1993, Kim received the highest civilian award for radio broadcasting and media ministries from former South Korean President Roh, Tae-woo, recognizing his efforts for improving Korea’s relationship with China and Russia.
In addition, Kim serves as honorary chairman for the Christian Council of Korea, honorary board chairman for Korea Youth for Christ and Myongji University, director of Christian Service, Inc., and chaplain of the Korean National Police. Kim formerly served as pastor of Central Baptist Church in Suwon, Korea, and is the founder of Suwon Central Christian Academy and Capital Bible College and Seminary.
The Korean Children’s Choir, whose members range from ages seven to 13, is a ministry of FEBC-Korea. Directed by Kim, the group has performed at numerous churches, schools and concert halls throughout the United States and Korea, including Carnegie Hall and the White House. Their BJU performance, which will represent three of FEBC’s five children’s choirs, will feature folk songs and sacred selections.
The concert is free and open to the public. Tickets are available at www.bju.edu/koreanchoir.
