Korea Nazarene University named its new international hall in honor of General Superintendent Emeritus Don and Adeline Owens.

KNU President Seung-an Im and Doo Hyun Ryu, chairman of the Board of Trustees, had a special dedication ceremony November 1 for the hall and the Owenses.

About 300 guests, including 19 participants of the Global Consortium of Nazarene Seminaries and Graduate Schools, attended the ceremony. Don Owens spoke during the ceremony in response to the honor, and William Patch, a former president of KNU, also attended the event.

The Owens International Hall consists of two structures joined by a bridge with a patio section. The hall has seven levels, five above ground and two below ground for parking and offices. The hall will house the university's program for international relations and business, and the university's admissions office.

"You can imagine how overwhelmed we are at being honored in such a way," Don Owens said.

Don and Adeline Owens founded the university, among the many other educational, missional, and ministerial assignments the couple performed during a life of dedicated service to God and the Church of the Nazarene.

KNU celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2007, gaining its status as a four-year college in 1992.
