Yang, Ju, "A Strategy of Ministry for Small Korean-American Church Growth: Centered on Tallahassee Korean Community Presbyterian Church" (2015). Doctoral Dissertations and Projects. 1120.
Many small Korean-American churches have difficulties. The small number of members causes financial problem and causes member burn out. Also a lot of church members have difficulty which comes from the difference of language and culture in America. The purpose of this thesis project is to provide a strategy to help small Korean-American churches to grow and be more effective. Tallahassee Korean Community Presbyterian Church will be used as a model. Even though this is not an exceptionally successful church, it has potential for growth. First, literature research about church growth, worship, homiletics, leadership, and discipleship will be processed based on biblical and theological views. Second, a survey of fifty members of TKCPC will be conducted. The survey will focus on the identities, problems, and basic faith of members. The result with specific statistical data will offer a solution for this and other small Korean-American churches.
