Full Title
Exploring bilingual worship and preaching in the bicultural Korean context
Author
Sung Hwan Cho
Abstract
The author researched a possible alternative for connecting communities by redefining a Korean immigrant church in Washington, DC as a 'bicultural community.' First, the author researched biblical and theological implications through 1 Corinthians by defining a 'bicultural community.' Second, he evaluated the current bilingual way of preaching and whether it could support creating harmony between Korean members and other ethnic groups at the Alpha Korean Community Church in Washington, DC by interviewing co-pastors, distributing surveys, and receiving professional advice. The author believes that this bilingual approach will be a powerful example for pursuing harmony in immigrant churches and give strong insight for minority communities in a multicultural world.
