Korea Campus Crusade for Christ is an interdenominational Korean organization founded by Dr. Joon Gon Kim in 1958. It was the first overseas mission post for Campus Crusade for Christ, founded by Dr. Bill Bright in 1951. Since its inception in 1958, Korea Campus Crusade for Christ(KCCC) has field offices both domestically and internationally spreading over countries from Asia to the Americas, including the United States. Its main focus is on world evangelism and discipleship.

Korea Campus Crusade for Christ became the first overseas mission post for Campus Crusade for Christ under the tutelage of Dr. Bill Bright. KCCC ministry began in the southwestern city of Gwangjoo and quickly spread to other parts of Korea including Seoul, Busan, Daegu, Daejun, and Jeonju. Currently, KCCC headquarters is located at Buam-dong with 50 domestic mission posts and 15 international mission posts with over 1,000 missionaries abroad.

After half a century as the head of KCCC, founder Dr. Joon Gon Kim retired his post and Rev. Sung Min Park was chosen to succeed him.

Los Angeles

Although there were efforts to expand Korea Campus Crusade for Christ, Los Angeles, in the 80's and 90's, it was not until 1996 when Rev. Dong Whan Kim revitalized the organization and propelled it into one of the largest interdenominational Korean mission organizations in Southern California.

One of its prime ministries is the campus ministry that covers some of the largest college campuses in southern and northern California, including the University of Southern California, University of California-Los Angeles, University of California-Irvine, University of California-Riverside, University of California-Berkeley, California State University-Long Beach, California State University-Northridge, Caltech, University of California-Santa Barbara and others.

Other ministries include summer overseas mission trips where members are encouraged to participate in overseas missions to religiously tolerant countries like Thailand, Japan, Asia Minor, Cambodia, East Asia, Mongolia, Central Asia, Laos, and Hawaii for interstate mission. Activities during the mission may include cross-cultural events, teaching English to foreigners, showing films and performing Tae-Kwon-Do demonstrations and if circumstances are safe enough, the sharing of the gospel. Since 1997, Korea Campus Crusade for Christ, Los Angeles, has been conducting annual summer mission trips that now include upwards of 500 college students participating in the ministry as short-term missionaries.
