Disciples of the Way Ministries (DOW) celebrated a milestone in the life the Grace Korean Lutheran Church. This church, planted by DOW, installed its first pastor, Rev. DongSu Son, on July 1st.

Guest preacher: Rev. Dr. Moon based his sermon on Revelations 3:7:

“‘I know your works. Behold, I have set before you an open door, which no one is able to shut. I know that you have but little power, and yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name.'”
God has truly given Grace Korean Church an open door into the Korean community in Watauga. DOW is proud to introduce Pastor DongSu Son as a Lutheran minister of Grace and a fervent missionary to the Korean people and people of all nations.
 “If God is for us,
who can be against us?”
– Rom. 8:31b
Grace Korean Lutheran Church is God’s answer to DOW’s four-year-long prayer to plant a church that could reach out to the Korean community.
Please Join us in praying
that God would grow this church
in the image of his Son
and make it thrive as a light
to those in darkness.
