The baton is passed as the CWM family welcomed and received its new General Secretary, Rev Dr Jooseop Keum, at a virtual Inaugural Service held on 5 July 2021. Attended by staff, ecumenical partners and friends from around the world, the service was a time of worship and celebration as we gave thanks to God for blessing us with two leaders who have stepped up to answer the call of servitude.
Dr Keum took office on 1 July. In light of Covid-19 challenges, he begins his tenure in South Korea, but will relocate to Singapore to assume his duties when possible. Here is an excerpt from the Service.
