Abstract

Problem

The evidence of secularism, such as ethical relativism, spiritual alienation, and materialism, are appearing among Korean Seventh-day Adventists. Consequently, they are removing God from the center of their lives. Seventh-day Adventist church leaders must develop and conduct a program of church revival through community involvement to ignite the original passion for Jesus and His soon return in the hearts of the Seventh- day Adventists in Korea and train them to witness in their communities.

Method

Library research, a personal and theological analysis, a contextual analysis of South Korea and the Korean Adventist members and churches, development of a Logical Framework Approach (LFA) and Gantt chart were pursued to design and develop a project that would facilitate church revival and community involvement.

Results

Church and community survey tools will be prepared and implemented. Spiritual growth and community service programs will be developed. Church members will be trained to provide services such as counseling, education, and Bible studies in the community.

Conclusion

To counteract the spread of secularism within the Korean Adventist churches, and to encourage church members to return God to the center of their lives, Korean Adventists must experience church revival and selfless service as they serve their community members and teach them of Jesus’ soon coming.
