Doing Mission Responsibly among Refugees and Migrants
Jinbong Kim, Dwight P. Baker, Jonathan J. Bonk, J. Nelson Jennings, Jae Hoon Lee, Editors
Migration has been a major source of change and a central feature in human development, but the sheer magnitude and relentlessness of migrant movements in recent decades defy easy analysis. The Korean Global Mission Leadership Forum desires accountability in Christian world mission. 

This volume is the outcome of the multinational case studies and responses presented at KGMLF’s 2017 consultation held in Sokcho, Korea, on the subject “Migration, Human Dislocation, and Accountability in Missions.” The studies presented deal with significant issues in Christian mission and address the case of North Korean migrants, the sufferings of Iraqis fleeing from war, African refugees, Syrian refugees in Lebanon, overseas Filipino workers, the situation of refugees in Europe, and other refugee cases.


  • We know about Korean Christianity’s strong commitmentto contemporary mission and evangelism but this book in afascinating way links it to the pressing issue of unprecedentedmigration and human dislocation. The case studies make itrich and insightful, calling the reader and the universal churchto account in new and dramatic ways. The international panelof presenters and responders truly represents mission fromeverywhere to everywhere—an essential dialogue for missiologyin the twenty-first century.

    Thomas Kemper, General Secretary Global Ministries, The United Methodist Church, Atlanta, Georgia USA.

  • In an era of global migration and world-circling movements ofpeople, recasting theology in the light of migration is imperative.This rich collection of in-depth missiological and theologicalreflections offers indispensable insight. It is packed with a wealthof knowledge, gained through first-hand experience, on one ofthe most difficult and yet prevalent issues of our time.
    Lalsangkima PachuauDean of Advanced Research Programs,J. W. Beeson Professor of Christian Mission,Asbury Theological Seminary, Wilmore, Kentucky USA
  • People Disrupted: Doing Mission Responsibly among Refugees and Migrants, as the fourth title in the KGMLF series on missionaccountability, demonstrates two important trends in mission:migration as a major subject for mission accountability, andthe maturing of the Korean church in convening global missionthinkers and practitioners in one space.
    Wonsuk MaDistinguished Professor of Global Christianity,Oral Roberts University, Tulsa, Oklahoma USA
