Twenty Korean students, plus their translators, are currently on the Winona Lake, Indiana, campus of Grace Theological Seminary to attend doctoral classes through Grace’s Korean Studies Program. The group is led by Dr. Choong-Woong Jin, president of Holy Way Institute of Theology of South Korea.
Since 1997, Grace Seminary, in cooperation with Holy Way Institute, has offered classes to help Korean pastors earn master’s and doctoral degrees. Some of the classes are taught in Korea and others are taught on the Grace campus. Five of the Korean students will graduate Saturday with doctoral degrees.
In February of this year, Grace Seminary established its new Center for Korean Studies, which is located in McClain Hall. The center includes an administrative office and a resource room.
Dr. Tom Stallter, chair of the Department of Korean Studies, works closely with Dr. Jin and his students, and is assisted by Cho-Long Kim, a Grace student from Korea, who will graduate from the college on Saturday.
