On Friday, September 22, Greater Atlanta Christian School (GAC) had the distinct honor of hosting the renowned Far East Broadcasting Company (FEBC) Korean Christian Children's Choir, a group of 40 talented young performers who delivered a heartwarming message of international Christian unity and gratitude.
The prestigious choir members, ages 7-13, are selected through a rigorous audition process and receive voice, performance, and choreography training. The choir's performances feature colorful costumes and traditional Korean dance.
The visit to GAC occurred the day after their arrival from South Korea and was a touching reminder of the global connection among Christians. The choir relayed their enduring appreciation for the United States Military and the missionaries who introduced Christianity during and after the war.
While in the United States, the choir will visit five states and 20 cities. Jeongmin Lee, Seoul Team Supervisor, said the group wants to return annually so the children can experience GAC's hospitality.
During their visit, the children from the choir not only shared their beautiful voices but also had the opportunity to tour the GAC campus. They were captivated by the state-of-the-art technology, abundant resources (particularly the playground and Nasmyth Environmental Center), the incorporation of the Bible within the curriculum, and the friendly student body at GAC.
The event served as a powerful reminder of the profound impact of faith and the bonds connecting Christians worldwide. It was a day of cultural exchange, music, and camaraderie as the Korean Christian Children's Choir visited the GAC community.
"I was truly moved by the remarkable performance of the Korean Christian Children's Choir. The choir's amazing presentation was a testament to the power of music and faith to bridge cultures and create connection," Dr. Scott Harsh, GAC President, said. "What I loved most was seeing members of the choir and our GAC students forge an immediate bond of friendship. We look forward to welcoming them back to campus for another visit."
