ABSTRACT

Chun Jin was a twentieth-century Methodist spiritual healer, visionary, and prophet, who served as a director of Daehan Sudowon, the first prayer mountain in Korea, for more than forty years. Overcoming the traumatic experience of the Japanese occupation of Korea and the Korean War, Chun established this ministry of prayer and healing on a remote mountainside in Cherwon. While staying far from the centre of political and ecclesiastical power, she had a significant influence on the history of Korean Christian spirituality. This study introduces her story to show how the Methodist emphasis on the work of the Spirit empowered Chun to find her theological voice using her gifts of prophecy and healing and how she created a grassroots network of women leaders in the male-dominated Korean church and society.
