There can be various reasons for this but indifference in succession of faith due to the lack of education in faith at home is one of them. In this context, the researcher will emphasize the necessity of family worship by observing that education in faith should be conducted at home and will propose the family worship training for family worship to settle. For these goals, the researcher observed family worships in the Bible and in Church history; what the roles of parents are regarding family worship; the synthesis and analysis of the results that the researcher conducted for this study; and thereby, focused on providing a model for family worship that could be applied to family worship training in Korean churches. Through this study, the researcher will suggest an effective training model for family worship in Korean churches and argue that family worship training has a direct influence in church growth and in succession of faith in families.
