MISSION

We carry the conviction that the center of the gospel is the message of peace and reconciliation.  Recognizing Jesus’ ministry as one of peacemaking and desiring to follow the way of Jesus in community, ReconciliAsian aims to educate and promote the culture of peacemaking and reconciliation within the Korean community through the church. 

GOALS
