Global Mission (Jiguchon) Church is a Korean megachurch located in Bundang, a suburb of Seoul, South Korea. It was founded on January 1994 by Daniel Dong-Won Lee.[1] As of December 2010, the lead pastor is Peter Chin. The church is actively involved in Evangelism Explosion (E.E.) and in 2008 began its first E.E. in English headed by Sansook Ko. Over 300 members of the Global Missions Church are involved in E.E.

The church began as a 60-member church dedicated to spreading the gospel through missions. In about 10 years, Jiguchon Church has expanded tremendously to the tune of over 20,000 people in attendance every Sunday, and with over 30,000 people registered as members. Global Missions Church has 8 services on Sunday and meets in the Kim's Club building in Bundang. They also have "English as a Second Language" services (Global English Mission or GEM) at both the Bundang church and in Suji (another suburb of Seoul). These ministries are headed by Pastor Bob Kim and have been growing since inception in 1999. Local ministry opportunities include short-term mission trips for local outreach, longer trips to China and Mongolia, orphanage visitation, and language lessons in Korean and English for all ages.[2] There are also services in Chinese and Japanese.
