Q: What does soon mo im mean?
A: The word “soon” is a Korean word meaning tender shoot and is derived from Isaiah 53:2. “Mo im” is the Korean word for meeting or gathering. The word soon mo im then, literally means a gathering of tender shoots.
Q: Who are the tender shoots?
A: Anyone who desires to know the Lord. So basically, you and me …
Q: But what’s the gathering for?
A: I think the founder of KCCC, Rev. Joon Gon Kim describes it best when he says, “A Soon group meeting is where one can teach and be taught, as well as to love and be loved. None of us are so poor in love as to have nothing to share, while no one is so rich he doesn’t need the love of others.”
Q: What do you do in the soon mo im?
A: Each soon mo im has a soon jang (a leader) who leads the group. It’s not just a bible study, nor is it just a fellowship meeting. It’s a place where you find accountability, encouragement, training, and strive with other brothers and sisters to know more about our Lord and His Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20)
Q: How can I join a soon mo im?
A: Just talk to any of the KCCC staffs or soon jangs!
“Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
