Wolmyeongdong (a.k.a. Wol Myeong Dong, Korean: 월명동; Hanja: 月明洞; lit. bright moon valley) is a worship and recreation center in Chungnam Province, South Korea. It is also known as the Recreation Center of the Christian Gospel Mission (CGM). Wolmyeongdong consists of various facilities and buildings on a tract of land of about 991,735 square meters in size.

Development of Wolmyeongdong began in the early 1990s and was led by CGM founder Jeong Myeong Seok. Although construction presently continues, visitors are free to come and go as they please. It has attracted tourists from several countries. It was built with a design in mind that would not damage the surroundings but vitalize the beauty of the surrounding nature as much as possible.
As a recreation center, Wolmyeongdong contains various hiking and walking trails, a pond, an art gallery, a rock museum, a sports field, natural spring water, and various other amenities. However, since it is also a temple in nature that has been dedicated to the Holy Trinity, statues of the Holy Son can be seen around the sports field.

  • Breathtakingly beautiful. No words can describe how incredible this place is. Wolmyeongdong is amazing not just because of its beautiful natural scenery - it boasts of the most incredible rock landscaping, miles of hiking trails, towering pine trees, natural caves etc. - but because of the intense emotions of happiness and peace that it invokes in you. It is a place of healing; a place of physical and spiritual rejuvenation. God truly rests in this place - You can feel Him the trees, the rocks, the water, the mountain cliffs... everywhere you go and look, He is there. And it is SUCH an exhilarating experience to feel Him so closely to you. Go visit Wolmyeongdong - regardless of whether you have a relationship with God or not. Go there by yourself, or with your family and friends. Go there to recharge, heal or just to immerse in nature. You will feel all your anxieties and worries melt away and be happier and more peaceful than you've ever felt. PS. You experience different things during the different seasons in Wolmyeongdong. Of course, pick your favorite season to visit, but I highly recommend you to try out all the seasons. :)
  • Wolmyeongdong in the winter is amazing! Since Korea has four distinctive seasons, you can also enjoy a different Wolmyeongdong depending on the season! During winter, this retreat center becomes a winter wonderland! You should all definitely check it out! If you come in the winter, just make sure to prepare winter clothes!
