Pastor Jaebum Heo


I was born in 1960, in Chong Cheong province of South Korea, the early passing away of my father made me a childhood philosopher (age 9), pondering over death with fear and wondering what would happen to me after death.

I started to attend church at the age of 10, and as a high school student I was convinced with the assurance of salvation on the grounds of my union with Jesus Christ, my Savior and Lord, in His death and resurrection. One blessing to me in Christ is freedom from fear of death.

After my assurance of salvation, I decided to commit my whole life to Christ. I had been persuaded strongly that to be used by God for the establishing and spreading of His Kingdom on this earth by preaching the gospel is of the greatest value and the most happiness I can experience and enjoy in this life.

After graduation from Baptist Seminary in 1990, I planted a local church in Inchon. During this pastoral ministry, I was blessed tomeet with Filipino workers in Inchon and made friends with them. I was able to help with the gospel and interpretation.

March, 1992 was another turning point of my life; I committed my life as an overseas missionary to the Philippines under Paul Mission which was established in 1986 for the cause of world evangelization. I entered the Philippines in July of 1992, from that time until 2000, I had been blessed with a teaching ministry in Bible schools, preaching the gospel, discipleship training and planting and supporting local churches.

From 2001 to 2003, I was sent to Tanzania and did similar things as I did in Philippines for native people in Zanzibar Island and Moshi near MT. Kilimanjaro, the roof of Africa.

In 2004, I was called by the headquarters of Paul Mission to be a missionary candidates training director in Korea which I am continuing to currently. To me, Korea is a mission field, once a missionary you are a permanent missionary.

I have been blessed to be involved in service with AICF since January 2009. Even though I am not a full-time pastor to AICF, I desire to be a full heart pastor in prayer and love. Working together with co-pastors, leaders and all members of AICF for the glory of God is my pleasure, joy and a big blessing. I have a wife (Peace Ho Kim) and a son (John), who is studying in USA. Thank you and God bless you more!
