Paul Huh Receives Grant to Advance Korean-American Ministry
Decatur, GA— Paul Huh, assistant professor of worship and director of Korean American Ministries at Columbia Theological Seminary, has received a $15,000 Worship Renewal Grant from the Calvin Institute of Christian Worship, Grand Rapids, MI. Huh will develop worship and music conferences for Korean American pastors, lay people, and children. The conferences will help pastors and other church leaders to design and experience cross-generational and multi-cultural liturgy that follows the church year and sacramental theology.
As part of Columbia’s new Korean American Ministries program, the conferences will be offered through the seminary’s Center for Lifelong Learning. The new program aims to bring Korean and American cultures and languages together in worship. This is important, says Huh, because worship for first- and second-generation Korean Americans is usually compartmentalized.
Columbia Theological Seminary, located in Decatur, Georgia, was established in 1828 and is one of 10 theological institutions of the Presbyterian Church (USA). The Calvin Institute’s Worship Renewal Grants Program is generously supported by Indianapolis-based Lilly Endowment Inc.
