In recent years, more Korean pastors are preaching the prosperity gospel in order to pursue quantitative church growth and seem uninterested in companionship with God. However, faithful men, like Aiden Wilson Tozer, always preached the gospel of the Cross alongside an intimate relationship with God. His life and ministry are examples of a true pastor called by God. Like Tozer, pastors in South Korea must discipline themselves to walk with God. The purpose of this thesis is to provide Korean pastors with practical applications for combating the prosperity gospel by building intimate companionship with God in their ministries by examining Tozer's life, writings, and sermons. The survey related to Korean pastors' ministry and spiritual lives will be used to study and develop practical applications for intimacy with God. This study will help Korean pastors to combat the prosperity gospel and build an intimate relationship with God.
