Many pastors in South Korea are experiencing hardships with the issue of church finance because they lack the biblical and theological understanding needed to practice biblical leadership in the area of financial management within the church. The purpose of this thesis project is to assist pastors within South Korea to exercise strong biblical leadership in the aspect of church finance, by laying a firm biblical and theological foundation for managing church finances and by providing an historical analysis of exemplary spiritual leaders who practiced strong biblical leadership in the area of church finance management. Furthermore, based on analytic comparisons, both effective and ineffective models of church finance management within South Korean Presbyterian churches will be presented to reveal specific pastoral responsibilities that are vital for effective financial management within the church.
