Paul S.S. Song was born in Korea. After graduating with a Bachelor of Business Administration from University of Seoul, he started to serve Korean Union Conference as assistant for departments and moved to Northern Asia-Pacific Division. Since 2015 he has been serving as the associate secretary of the NSD. He received an M.A. in theology from Sahmyook University, Korea, and since 2018 he has been studying in a doctor of ministry program at Andrews University.

The term Eastern Asia Division was temporarily used for the Far Eastern Division, from 1918 when the India Union Mission and the Australasian Union Conference were separated from the Asiatic Division. On March 2, 1919, at the council of the Far Eastern section in Shanghai, China, the term “Far Eastern Division of the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists” was adopted, and the term “Eastern Asia Division” was completely replaced by “Far Eastern Division.”1 For more details, see “Asiatic Division” and “Far Eastern Davison.”
