Korean Students Fellowship

Advisor: Dr. Sungtaek “Seattle” Kim

Are you a Korean divinity student at Liberty University? The Korean Students Fellowship (KSF) can help you adjust to your new life in Lynchburg. Here you can enjoy Christian fellowship with other Korean students and grow in evangelical theology.

701 Korean Church 

Pastor: Dr. Sungtaek “Seattle” Kim

At 701 Korean Church, you’ll be able to worship with Korean students, their families, and local residents. The number 701 is the street number where Thomas Road Baptist Church (TRBC) had its beginnings many years ago. Our church name signifies the spiritual legacy and ministry heritage of the late Dr. Jerry Falwell, Sr., who planted TRBC and founded Liberty University.

Services at 701 Korean Church are held at 7 p.m. on Wednesdays and 11 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. on Sundays at the old TRBC sanctuary (701 Thomas Rd., Lynchburg). The college group, God is Love community (GIL), meets on Fridays. You are also welcome to join us at our dawn prayer meetings at 6:00 a.m. from Monday to Saturday at the white chapel on the Liberty University campus. Please visit www.lkci.org for details.

Korean Language Assistance Program

If you are a Korean divinity student, you may be able to participate in the Korean Language Assistance Program (KLAP). You can get help from KLAP if English is your second language, your TOEFL score is less than 550(pbt), or 79(ibt), and you plan to return to Korea for ministry. KLAP courses are taught in Korean, translated, assisted by a Korean-qualified reading assistant or delivered by other methods approved by the Graduate Senate to ensure comparable educational outcomes. Divinity courses are the only classes taught under the KLAP and students who qualify may only take courses designated as KLAP.
