The Kims are regional missionaries from South Korea to the Kingdom of Tonga.

Married in 1989, In-Kwon and Jeong-Seok are the proud parents of three children (Paul, Maria, and David). In-Kwon currently holds a Masters in Social Work.

When the Holy Spirit called him to serve the poor and disabled, he obeyed, spending 10 years sharing the gospel and teaching vocational skills to the intellectually disabled. In-Kwon and Jeong-Seok then spent another seven years with a Christian relief and development organization, taking care of slum dwellers, street children and orphans in Kenya and Rwanda, Africa.

In 2001, the Holy Spirit moved them to begin preparing to be missionaries. They went to New Zealand, where In-Kwon began to study theology at the Nazarene Bible College of New Zealand (BCNZ). In January 2006 he was ordained by the New Zealand district.


In-Kwon and Jeong-Seok accepted God's call to be missionaries in the South Pacific in 2007 when they and their family arrived in the Kingdom of Tonga.

It is here that they began pouring their lives into the amazing compassionate ministry, called the "Mango Tree Respite Centre" targeting Tongans with disabilities.

This Nazarene ministry is unique, with a vision to reach out specifically to the physically and metally challenged, hurting and sometimes hidden, precious people of these islands.
