“For the words of God and for the testimonies of Jesus Christ” is a Christian thought  to be pondered when the founder of King’s College of the Philippines Rev. Kwon Young Soo was chosen to be the 15th  Underwood Awardee of Yonsei University, South Korea last October 8.

Among 25,000 Korean missionaries subjected for nominees of the prestigious award for missionaries, Founder Kwon, a missionary in the Philippines for almost twenty five years, particularly in the Northern Luzon, walks his way to the top with a proud heart when he received the legacy award by the well-known American missionary and founder of Yonsei University in South Korea, Rev. Horace Grant Underwood.

Dubbed as the missionary among missionaries, Missionary Kwon stood out the challenges he encountered on the mountainous areas of the Cordillera Administrative Region and Cagayan Valley Region since 1990.

From its history, Missionary Kwon laboriously ministered among the people of Mt. Province, Kalinga, Apayao, Ifugao, Benguet, Baguio City, and the provinces of Cagayan and Isabela through medical missions, and building Christian churches known as Northern Luzon Presbyterian Church. Seeing the need to leverage ministerial works, and the lack of theologically trained clergy in the Cordilleras, Kwon started a Bible School in Sabangan, Mt. Province. He continually conducted missionary works among the different tribes of the region.

The vision of Missionary Kwon was intensified when he realized that there was a growing number of out-of-school youth. In 2003, two higher educational institution were established namely: the Eastern Luzon Colleges in Bambang, Nueva Viscaya and Eastern Luzon Colleges-Benguet, now known as King’s College of the Philippines. The institution started with Technical and Vocational courses since it became a major contributory factor to its take off, providing enough operational funds for the four-year degree courses.

10 years later, KCP continually soared up with an accelerated increase of the number of enrollees reaching to more than 3,000. At present, the Basic Education of KCP was also established with its Elementary Laboratory School, and Secondary Laboratory School.

As a missionary in the country, Kwon’s vision did not stop, yet it is always integrated on the school’s advocacy of promoting professionals who love God, lead the nation, and light the world.
