Busan is a transient city for foreigners. Teachers come and teachers go. And because we are located on a university, we get a high traffic of students who also come and go. But here is a look at the many faces of ICC.
ICC is a small and intimate community. We love doing things together, even if its just going out to lunch after service. Sometimes, though, we go on more extravagant excursions. But wherever we go and whatever we do, we always enjoy who we're with.
International Community Church (ICC) is an interdenominational evangelical church serving the Busan / Gyeong-sang-nam-do Area. We are an independent church doing ministry that reaches the international community of Busan.
Our purpose is to build a community of Christ-followers from all nations.

groups are designed to reach out to college students. This spring we are trying
a different approach than in the past. If you volunteer, you get to pick the
topic and book that you want to teach. The goal is to present the gospel to
college students. You can do a book like ‘Who Moved My Cheese’ or ‘Lion, Witch
and the Wardrobe’ and so on. The focus will be developing relationships through
which you can share your faith and your experience with college students. If
you are interested, please email Joon.
