Global Ministries opened its Asia regional office March 23, 2017. The new Asia regional office is within blocks of where the first Methodist missionaries to Seoul, Korea began working in the 1880s. The missionaries started schools and health care ministries and laid the foundation for a flourishing Methodist denomination. The Asia office has 10 staff people from diverse backgrounds, seven people on-site and three deployed in Atlanta, New York and Nanjing, China. The new office is within sight of the presidential residence, in the financial and political center of South Korea.
