Park, Hyun Sik, "Deagil Presbyterian Church Renovation: Another Opportunity at a Crisis, as a Traditional Church in Korea" (2000). Doctoral Dissertations and Projects. Paper 219.
A review of current literature demonstrates that very little material exists concerning the renovation of traditional churches. The purpose of this project is to illuminate leaders of traditional churches in Korea regarding renovation. Based on the surveys and questionnaires sent to Daegil Presbyterian Church members, to the neighbors in the community, and to other church leaders in the synod, the project reviews the historical perspectives, the present conditions, and the future vision. There are two kinds of crises in Korea: one is the stagnation of church growth; and the other is an IMF economic crisis. This project was developed using two pastoral approaches: 1) renovation, and 2) digital paradigm. The author will show the detail presentations which have begun within Daegil Presbyterian Church.
