In 1988, God called a team of twelve led by Pastor Jung Hyun Oh of Sarang Church (Seoul, South Korea) to plant a church in Southern California for a growing Korean community in Orange County. On March 20, 1988, Sa-Rang Community Church (SRCC) was officially founded in the hall of a small piano store in Norwalk, CA.
In 2002, Pastor Jung Hyun Oh received the call to return to South Korea and SRCC welcomed Pastor Daniel Kim who had the heart and God-given vision to raise up the next generation. He dreamed of seeing the next generation take ownership of and get involved in the now well-established SRCC campus in Anaheim, CA. Pastor Daniel therefore saw the need to establish a designated space and identity for the second generation of Korean-American children who were now growing up into adults within the church. In 2007, HolyWave was born, a ministry within Sa-Rang Community Church envisioned to not only provide a haven for second generation Korean-Americans, but to welcome the local community.
Though many leaders had come and gone, HolyWave continued to grow by God’s grace. Through HolyWave, SRCC formed newfound relationships with the local community, working closely with underprivileged students and families in the Anaheim School District every year to this day. In 2015, HolyWave transitioned over to SRCC’s satellite campus, Kingdom Dream Center, to allow more opportunities for members to take ownership of the church.
