independent church, Presbyterian in polity, in Herndon, Virginia, consisting of two interdependent
congregations: the English-speaking Congregation (EC) and the Korean-speaking Congregation (KC). Each of EC
and KC is governed by its own board of elders, with issues affecting both EC and KC addressed jointly by both
boards of elders. On Sundays, approximately 450 adults attend EC services while approximately 2,000 adults
attend KC services. In addition, there are about 300 Youth Group students as well as about 600 children in our Children’s Ministry.
