Davis Korean Church is a non-denominational evangelical mission based church. Davis Korean Church was founded by nine UC Davis graduate students in 1982 who began meeting together and eventually established the local church. Though DKC initially focused on the Korean-speaking community (both students and families), it expanded to include a diverse English-speaking group, having their own services and events.

Currently there are 2 pastors on staff: Pastor Joshua Lee (Sr Pastor) and Pastor Daniel Yoon (English Ministry Pastor). There are about 210 Korean-speaking adults, 40 Korean-speaking college students, 80 English-speaking adults, 150 English-speaking college students, 60 youth group students and 100 children.

Mustard Seed Ministry

Their english-speaking campus student group is Mustard Seed Ministry (MSM) which has a diverse group of believers, who meet every Friday at Young 198 at 7pm for worship with music, a brief sermon, Bible study and fellowship time which mostly consists of games and activities that develop relationships between participants.

Green Olive Tree Ministry

G.O.T. is the Korean-speaking campus ministry affiliated to DKC. It is a growing ministry founded in 2007, with a diverse group of Korean-speakers. Many of them are students who are bilingual and some are students who have come to Davis to study English for a year; others are student who are studying abroad for 4 years. If you are interested in visiting/joining this ministry please their Facebook page.

Outside the 4 Walls

DKC is also known for supporting various missionaries and mission agencies locally and globally. One local organization that DKC supports is Union Gospel Mission in the Sacramento area — where members, on the 2nd Saturday of each month, sponsor and prepare a meal (i.e. usually burritos) for all guests at the homeless shelter. Everybody is welcome to participate in UGM. Other ministries supported by Davis Korean Church includes: Step-Off Ministries in Buena Park, California, which reaches out to gangsters, Shiloam Church in South Korea, Shinmangae Mission in South Korea serving the disabled and blind, and House of SaRang in China. The church also support missionaries in Arizona, China, New Mexico, Thailand, Kenya, Cambodia, Brazil and Singapore.

The church also runs a weekly offering of food to those less fortunate in the community, Friday's Harvest.

2009-07-17 17:55:39   Our yard shares a fence with the parking lot of the Davis Korean Church. While for the most part they have been good neighbors, on two separate occasions cars have driven through the fence into our yard. On one of these occasions, the car drove through my husband's workshop, and he would probably have been seriously injured had he started work a few minutes earlier. The car crashed through our fence No steps have been taken to install strong barriers to prevent a reccurence, and the new construction has compounded this problem. There is now a paved parking lot with no barriers, and a downhill slope from the parking lot into our fence. The parking lot has been open less than two days and already cars are parking with their bumpers hanging over the edge. We are seriously concerned for our family and our neighbor's safety! Cars parking in the DKC parking lot July 16, 2009 More details and pictures are posted at http://www.koyoteknives.com/church/. Please contact the church and let them know that this situation is not acceptable! —JessicaLuedtke

It's just that we now have the equivalent of a 3 foot fence - ZERO privacy- and the parking barrier situation was supposed to have been (I was told by the maintenance pastor) fixed with the new construction. —PopeChristof

2009-07-29 16:42:51   We talked to the PM for Hilbert's (the Contractor for the construction) and he said there should be plans in place for something called 'city designed parking barriers'- not sure when that's going to happen, but they should be on the way. —PopeChristof

  • That's got to be an eye-opener in your backyard on a Sunday morning—a car crashing through your fence and workshop. Thank goodness your husband is alright. I used to live in the neighborhood and remember the previous church would have maybe twenty cars in the lot of a typical quiet and dignified Sunday a few years back. I can't believe there's this many Koreans from Davis attending the church now? Barriers seem like they'd only be a stopgap till someone in a hurry hits the gas and "Drive" instead of "Reverse" again. Perhaps the out-of-towners could organize car pools or maybe the church could get a bus or two to make the rounds out of town and pick up congregants (who now drive into Davis) for Sunday services. Some kind of mass transit solution would obviously be the ticket. BrianJKenyon
