Jiho Choi and his spouse travelled to Shawnee from Venezuela where he has begun a campus ministry and is starting a college. His interest is in cultural ministry – music and art , which he taught in Korea before he began his mission work. Choi was the worship leader for the Global Baptist Church in Seoul, Korea – a church of over 30,000 members and probably the largest Baptist church in the world. His father was one of the pioneers of Baptist work in Korea as a church planter and pastor. Choi has expressed how appreciative he is of the scholarship provided by Central, as it would have been very difficult for him to pursue this degree otherwise. His mission work is not subsidized by his former congregation, nor denomination, so he has to raise the support for his ministry.

No, Central is not giving academic standing to those who bribe the Dean! The Dean’s List is a group of individuals who understand that the contemporary church faces significant challenges and decisions that require capable leaders who listen to God and can move forward with courage. They want to invest in Central’s constantly evolving academic programs to ready graduates to minister with a missional outlook to a diverse world.
Dean’s List members will receive periodic updates about what we are working on in the academic division. You will also receive a Dean’s List pagemarker as a reminder of our appreciation for your investment in Central and will be invited to be our guest to Central’s academic events.
