In 1963 Pastor Choi Sung-Gon of HoHun (no. 18) and Kim Oh-Sung gathered 102 churches and formed a new denomination at Sungdongjaeil Church. Choi Sung-Gon served as moderator. The initiative was largely financed by Choi Sung-Gon’s private money. SungHwa seminary was opened and was directed by Kim Oh-Sung.Their conviction was that neoorthodox theology was the main reason for the division of TongHap and HapDong, and therefore they promoted a conservative approach. But soon BoSu could no longer maintain its activities, and, when Pastor Choi left for the USA in 1965, many churches left the denomination. For five or six years the church was inactive. Graduates from SungHwa seminary — Cho Won-Kuk, Kim Duk-Sun, and Chung In-Young — met in 1972 and succeeded in restoring the denomination. When HapDong divided in 1979, many minister sand about 200 congr joined non-mainline churches of HapDong. Only 22 stayed in BoSu.
