Pastor Park expressed his gratitude, stating, "I believe that serving at Handong Global University is entirely God's calling. I humbly request prayers that God, who has called His insufficient servant and entrusted with a mission, to also grant faith, wisdom, and a heart of love."

Celebrating its 29th anniversary this year, Handong Global University reaffirmed its Christian identity as a university and expressed its determination to strengthen campus worship and biblical teaching. With the appointment of Pastor Eunjo Park as the new Dean of Chapel, Handong Global University expressed expectations that his experience in missionary activities, church planting, and Christian education movements, including those in Afghanistan, will significantly contribute to the university's missionary calling in the field of education for the next generation.
