KCCD has hosted two Economic Development Bus Tours in partnership with L.A. County Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas to showcase successful development projects created through church, private and public partnerships to Korean and Korean-American pastors. KCCD is excited to create positive synergy between Korean churches and public/private sector entities by providing pastors with the opportunity to see first-hand industry leading models of churches that have accessed government and outside funding for economic development projects, such as affordable and senior housing.
