The purpose of this project is to provide a Christ-centered, biblical Great Commission model for Presbyterian Church pastors in South Korea. Pastor Hanhum Ok said that there are many programs and forms without the spiritual vitality in the Korean Church. Many attractional churches attract people by relying heavily on programs that often alter the focus of believers onto the programs themselves and prevent them from focusing on Jesus Christ. To ensure that the church—the body of Christ—remains faithful to its biblical mandates, thesis project argues that the pastors must have leadership principles and applications in accordance to the Christ-centered biblical great commission model. This author has conducted academic research and applied research through surveying thirty-two Korean pastors ministered over 10 years. This author will provide leadership principles and applications that will develop the Christ-centered biblical model to help Korean pastors stayed focused on the great commission.
