YMCA in China, Japan, and Korea 1889 - 1930

Date: 11/06/2012

Time: 12:00-1:00 pm

Location: Room 120b Andersen Library


Beginning with Japan in 1889 the North American Young Men's Christian Association (YMCA) was instrumental in developing the YMCA movement into a global enterprise. Driven the missionary zeal of the time the YMCA sought to "evangelize to the world in a generation." However, rather than promoting a particular religion, the YMCA with its three-fold mission of developing the whole individual - mind, body, and spirit worked to foster a new breed of Christian citizen. This presentation will discuss the trends and highlights of YMCA work in China, Japan and Korea with particular emphasis on the physical, educational and religious work from its entry into the field in 1889 through to the dismantling of the foreign work in the 1930's.
