HoHun also split from HapDong (no. 15). In 1961 some 25 delegates to the Assembly, among them Pastor Park Byung-Hun and Kim Yun-Chan, formed a special association for the safeguard of the conservative faith. They declared their intention to join ICCC. In the following year they formed the General Assembly HoHun. Park Byung-Hun was elected as moderator.Thechurch joined ICCC and was financially supported by it. An unfortunate conflict over leadership arose in the early ’60s. A group led by Pastor Lee Do-Bong sought to prolong Park Byung-Hun in his leadership functions. A clash developed with the new moderator Song Jae-Muk, who left the denomination and founded the Presbyterian Church of Korea (HwanWon [no. 19]) in 1967. HwanWon enjoyed the support of the ICCC. For a time, HoHun found itself in a precarious situation. Under the leadership of Pastor Sin Eun-Kyun, the church succeeded in overcoming its financial difficulties. It united with ChongYun (1977). Pastor Sin Eun-Kyun was elected as moderator (1978). A year later Park Byung-Hun and a group of his followers separated from HoHun (1979); after Park’s death most of them returned to HoHun eleven years later (1990). HoHun adopted a policy of integrating small denominations into church fellowship, e.g.,BoKum (Pastor Park Myung-Bin) and SuBu (Pastor Hwang Jong-Ik).In 1982 the church established a Committee for Combining Denominations. As a result several small groups joined HoHun. In 1987 HoHun sought to unite with BoSu (Pastor Lee Hyun-Jae).But two years later controversies over this union and over the presidency of HoHun Seminary (founded in 1985) led to a division within the General Assembly of HoHun.
