The Common Good

Eugene Cho

Eugene is the founder and lead pastor of Quest Church—an urban, multicultural, and multigenerational church in Seattle—and also the founder and executive director of Q Café—an innovative, nonprofit community cafe and music venue. Eugene and his wife Minhee are also the founders of One Day’s Wages (ODW)—”a new movement of people, stories, and actions to alleviate extreme global poverty.”

The strategy of ODW is to create a collaborative movement by integrating human relationships, social media/technology, and the power of story. ODW promotes awareness, invites simple giving (one day’s wages), and supports sustainable relief through partnership—especially with smaller organizations in developing regions. Since it launched in October 2009, ODW has been featured in the The New York Times (twice), The Seattle Times, NPR, Mashable, and numerous other media outlets.

Eugene and Minhee have been married for more than 15 years and live with their three children in Seattle.

Listen, I’m not here to bash Manti. I’m not here to ridicule or mock him. I’m not even suggesting that Manti is lying or that his statement is not accurate but we can all agree that the whole...
