World Peace Corps Mission is an international missionary organization established since 1989. It is co-founded by late Hon. Robert L. Leggett and Dr. Han Min Su, and operates under the principles of inter-religious collaboration, and in the spirit of altruism and world peace.

Hon. Robert L. Leggett was a nine-term United States Congressman. While visiting Korea in 1961, he met Dr. Han Min Su who is an elder clergyman of the Korean Christian churches. He is also an ex-public relations officer of Pacific Air Forces, and the USA-author of “Goodbye John.” The two gentlemen struck an immediate friendship. In later years, Congressman Leggett continued to be inspired by the faithful Christians in Korea. While witnessing the success of the Peace Corps initiated by U.S. President John F. Kennedy, the two gentleman co-founded the World Peace Corp Mission as a civilian organization emulating the spirit of the United States Peace Corps Volunteer Service.
