Providence is a religious group founded in South Korea in 1982 by Jeong Myeong-seok. The group has several other names, including JMS and Christian Gospel Mission.

Providence was set up in Australia in 1997. The group refused to say where it operates from in Australia.

Following accusations of sexual assault, Jeong Myeong-seok fled Korea in 1999. In 2001 he was charged with rape and in 2003 he was arrested in Hong Kong.

In April 2009, the Supreme Court of South Korea sentenced Jeong to 10 years in prison on charges of rape and molestation.
