The Rev. Young Seon (Christina) Kim is a missionary with the General Board of Global Ministries of The United Methodist Church serving as director of the Next Generation Ministries of the church in Tanzania, based in Dar es Salaam. 

Next Generation is an effort to recruit and equip young leadership for ministry and mission in a country with a youthful population and where United Methodists shows promise of extensive growth. In 2014, Tanzania was a provisional annual conference, with plans to become a full annual (regional) conference as soon as possible within the North Katanga Episcopal Area, centered in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The first United Methodist missionaries in Tanzania came from DR Congo.

Below is part of the e-mail received by the Mission Team of the United Methodist Church of Whitefish Bay from Rev. Kim as we are starting to support Next Generation.  For more information about Rev. Kim and Next Generation please visit the Board of Global Ministries of the United Methodist Church website at:

“Thank you so much for your support and prayer. 

Thank you so much for sharing my school project with your team.  We can make a difference together in Tanzania’s next generation and their family and community.   You are a kingdom connector to me.  God’s blessings to you. 

With God all things are possible. 

Christina (Young Seon) Kim
