|History & Staff|
The English Ministry was first organized in August 1998 under the auspices of the Session of the Korean Presbyterian Church of Westchester. From its inception, the English Ministry has grown and matured into what you find today.
Our worship services are a blend of contemporary and traditional formats. We lift up songs of praise using contemporary Christian music while our worship follows a more traditional format. On occasion, we will worship together with our parent congregation, the Korean Ministry.
We are eager to have you join us during our Sunday worship services. Our doors are open to all who desire to learn and worship together. Please contact us if you have any questions.
