Biography:

Dr. Cho comes from the School of Intercultural Studies at Fuller Theological Seminary where she was Assistant Professor of Intercultural Leadership. She had been teaching in both the Korean and English language programs. Previously Dr. Cho taught in Korea at the Asian Center for Theological Studies and Mission where she taught intercultural studies and the Bible and Christian mission.

Prior to that, Dr. Cho and her husband trained new Christian leaders and planted a multicultural church in Kokshetau, Kazakhstan. In this context she used Russian, Korean and English languages.

Dr. Cho did her undergraduate studies in St. Petersburg, Russia at the Russian State Pedagogical State University where she majored in Russian philology. She did both her masters’ and doctoral work in the School of World Mission at Fuller Theological Seminary. Her family is from Korea, but she was raised mostly in Canada.

She is a seasoned missionary who will oversee the planning and coordination of all of our centers under the Ockenga Institute. She will be the first Korean woman on the President’s cabinet and will help in our ministry to Korean churches, both in Korea and the United States. She is not only a scholar and creative leader, but also a poet who has penned one of the most popular Korean praise songs: 하나님의 은혜 (Hananimui Eunhye: “Grace of God”).”
