Evangelism Service Enlightenment
Welcome to NY Milal!
In 1979, Milal Mission was formed to share the faith we have in Jesus Christ with the disabled (evangelism); to work with the disabled to create a world in which everyone can live and love one another for who they are (service); and to invoke evangelism in the church while raising our community’s awareness in regards to the disabled (enlightenment).
Milal Mission in New York was founded by Byong In Choi in June 1993. He dedicated his life to the organization and served the New York community until his resignation in February 2007. In March 2007, Ja Song Kim, our current director, was appointed to the position of Mission in New York’s executive director.
