Reverend David B. Oh, the senior pastor of Southern California Bethel Church in Buena Park, was inaugurated as this newspaper's first chairman of the board of directors.
"As I was appointed to be the first chairman of the board and prayed about whether to take on the position, I realized that there is a specific calling for my role in helping spread the gospel of Jesus, and happily accepted," said Rev. Oh during the inaugural ceremony which took place on July 31 at Southern California Bethel Church. "I will do my part in the background to help Christianity Daily to share about Jesus, to help the churches and members of the church who believe in Jesus to become one, and to rebuke but also lead the world by sharing the gospel."
Leaders of several Korean Christian organizations were gathered at the inaugural ceremony, including the president of the Southern California Korean Ministers' Association, the vice president of the Council of Korean Churches in Orange County, and the president of the Council of Korean Churches in Southern California.
Oh graduated from Sungkyul University in South Korea, and also studied theology in Presbyterian Theological Seminary in America, Azusa Pacific University, and Houston Graduate School of Theology, and has served as a pastor in the Korean immigrant church context for some 40 years.
