Presbyterians in South Korea
« on: December 22, 2012, 12:21:07 PM »
Howdy! Many years to you and your family.

Slightly off-topic, but there's a Korean Presbyterian church up the road from me. Are Presbyterians common in S. Korea?

Yup. And Methodists. A Korean teacher I knew told me that after the Korean War, many Koreans in the south became Christian, following the predominate forms followed by American soldiers. There may also have been remnants of Protestant missions to the area in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

If you spend long enough on this forum, you'll come away with all sorts of weird, untrue ideas of Orthodox Christianity.
