LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. – The Committee on Mission to the World (CMTW) is pleased to announce the nomination today of Dr. Lloyd Kim of Phnom Penh, Cambodia, to serve as the next coordinator of Mission to the World (MTW), pending election by the 2015 General Assembly. Dr. Kim has served as a missionary with MTW since 2004 in the Philippines and then in Cambodia, and is currently MTW’s international director of Asia-Pacific.
Mark Bates, chair of CMTW and senior pastor of Village Seven Presbyterian Church said, “Dr. Kim is a proven missionary leader. He displays a rare blend of godliness, humility, academic rigor, and leadership acumen. Not only is Dr. Kim thoroughly committed to the Reformed faith, but he also understands the challenges of taking the gospel to other cultures.”
Under Dr. Kim’s leadership the MTW Asia-Pacific ministries, particularly Cambodia where he served as team leader, have grown into vibrant church-planting networks that are working to make disciples, plant churches and transform communities. About his missions experience, Kim commented, “I have seen the hand of God working mightily throughout Asia and the Pacific. I believe this experience will help me inspire the next generation of missionaries as well as serve those who are currently on the field.”
