This thesis researches the recent cultural transition in Korean society, and suggests a strategic plan for family ministry as a response to the change. Chapter 1 is an introduction that surveys the literature about the relationship of Christianity and culture to propose the responsibility for Christians as biblical culture-makers. Chapter 2 studies the tendency of recent Korean culture, familism, and encourages Korean-church leaders to transform their ministry philosophy into family ministry. Chapter 3 exposes the original discipleship design, which the cooperation of parents and ministers accomplishes through 2 Timothy 3:14–15. Chapter 4 recommends a strategy plan, which includes six steps, to create a family ministry culture. Chapter 5 proposes twenty-three family ministry programs to help ministers contextualize them into a church’s ministry context. Chapter 6 offers an example of developing a family ministry curriculum and summarizes this work.
