Leadership Transition – Korean School of Theology

After more than a decade leading the Korean School of Theology (KST) Dr Honam Kim is retiring from his role as Dean.

Honam is a distinguished academic and dedicated servant who has overseen the growth of the school, now with campuses in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.

While Dr Kim will be finishing as the Dean he will continue his friendship with KST, teaching as a sessional lecturer, as needed in his specialist areas.

During this time of leadership transition, the Korean School of Theology will be led by Professor Stephen Smith, Dean of the Sydney College of Divinity (SCD).

For more than a decade SCD has been a significant partner with the Korean community of churches in the development of the Korean School of Theology. SCD’s commitment to this great ministry is unfaltering with a strong desire to build on the great work of the wonderful faculty team and staff, to see the KST grow from strength to strength.

It remains SCD’s desire to support the community of Korean churches to pursue their own unique ministry and mission goals. This will involve further investment in online learning, reshaping the quality of campus facilities, the further development of new and useful degrees, and providing the faculty greater opportunities to connect with, and assist, their church community.

Over the next six months KST will be working to build closer connections with the church community. The amazing KST faculty will be developing their strategy to ensure the school grows in its excellence and relevance to support more closely to the mission an ministry goals of churches in the Korean community.
