Volunteering is a practical method of community service which is an essential ministry of the church’s mission as the salt and light of the world. In order for a church to fulfill its mission of community service, the volunteer work of church members should be activated. However, many church members are still not participating in community service, and some volunteers have difficulty in continuing their volunteer work due to the lack of volunteer management for volunteering properly. The purpose of this study is to develop a viable volunteer management process to vitalize volunteering for community service of a church properly with application specifically to the Korean Baptist Church of Blacksburg. This project will analyze and evaluate the questionnaire survey from the church members of the Korean Baptist Church of Blacksburg. This thesis will provide guidelines to serve the local communities in Korean churches.
