/ -- The ECFA (Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability) announced today the accreditation of Seoul USA (Legal Name: Seoul Texas) of Colorado Springs, CO.
ECFA accreditation is based on the ECFA Seven Standards of Responsible Stewardship™, including financial accountability, transparency, sound board governance and ethical fundraising. Seoul USA
joins a growing number of Christ-centered churches and ministries across America, supported by over 20 million donors that have earned the right to display the ECFA seal. When an organization is accredited by ECFA, it demonstrates its willingness to follow the model of biblical accountability.
"We are pleased to accredit a ministry committed to serving as a convening mechanism for ordinary Christians in North and South Korea, Asia, and the West to grow to fullness in Christ through hearing and doing the word together," said Dan Busby, president of ECFA.
Founded in 2003, Seoul USA's vision is that the North Korean church become the catalyst for spiritual examination, repentance, and renewal in Asian and Western Christianity, with North Korean defectors serving among the leadership pillars of the church around the world.
