Westminster to the World: Asia
Westminster is pleased to announce that it's latest issue of Westminster Today is now available to students, alumni, and anyone interested in learning about Westminster's impact in the largest continent in the world: Asia.

From the President's opening letter:
Westminster has had an important role in bringing the gospel to Asia. This past year, we celebrated the establishment of the Stephen Tong Chair of Reformed Theology. Dr. Tong’s ministry spans many countries in Asia and his home base is in Jakarta, Indonesia. In this issue of Westminster Today we focus on what Westminster has been doing to impact this growing and significant part of the growing global community. Specifically, we’ll consider stories and concerns that emanate from Korea and China.
Korea. The historic partnerships between Westminster and the seminaries and churches in Korea are deepening and strengthening. This is due to our long partnership with our alumni living and serving there, and Westminster’s renowned professor Harvie Conn. Here you will find a brief biography of the Rev. Dr. In Whan Kim, an alumnus with a long partnership with Westminster.
China. Internationally recognized mission leader with an honorary doctorate from Westminster, the Rev. Dr. John Bechtel, addresses “The Truth about the Church in China”. He states, “Part of the reason for the phenomenal growth of the church in China, and indeed a major part, has been the hard, early work of Jonathan Chao.” Jonathan, “a Westminster graduate, sacrificed his health and time to accomplish” his fruitful ministry
