Hangoul (pronounced as “Hangear,”) was born and raised in South Korea by her clergy parents in the Korean Methodist Church. Experiencing a miraculous healing and protection from birth, Hangoul grew up serving the church with her gifts in teaching, music and art.
When Hangoul was 17, she had an opportunity to study abroad in New Hampshire, USA, for a year. The time of striving to survive alone in a foreign country taught her the struggle of living as an immigrant, refugee and foreigner. Hangoul decided to obey God’s call to walk with those who are isolated and discriminated against because of their differences in society.
To be equipped for God’s work, Hangoul studied theology in Yonsei University and ministered in various churches in Seoul and Osan, South Korea. In 2018, she graduated with a Master of Divinity degree from Candler School of Theology, Emory University, Atlanta, achieving certification in Women, Ministry and Theology. Hangoul also worked for a year as a chaplain resident in the cardiology unit of Emory University Hospital.
Hangoul is commissioned to serve as a refugee work manager with the Free Methodist Church of Greece. She expressed joy and excitement in living her call and participating in God’s mission in Greece with a compassionate heart, disciplined mind and rich experiences in ministry.
