ABSTRACT MEASURING THE PERCEPTIONS OF PROPHETIC MINISTRY AMONG FIRST GENERATION KOREAN IMMIGRANT CHRISTIANS IN BERGEN COUNTY, NEW JERSEY CHRISTINE HYUNSUN KIM Doctor of Ministry May 2016 Advisers: Frank Chan, Paul King This study sought to find the perceptions on the prophetic ministry among first generation Korean Immigrant Christians in order to help them to grow to become more mature in their understanding and experience of the prophetic ministry. The researcher created a Maturity in the Prophetic Ministry Survey, a 31-question Likert Scale questionnaire, which seeks to measure various attitudes about prophetic ministry that would be indicators of maturity in understanding prophetic ministry. The researcher surveyed fifty-three first generation Korean immigrant Christians who attend Korean churches of different denominations in Bergen County, NJ. As a result, the researcher found the participants to be of moderate immaturity in perception about prophetic ministry. The literature review discusses the spectrum of views on New Testament (NT) prophecy and discusses the role prophetic ministry has played in the Korean church in Korea and in New Jersey, in particular, the potential impact that Korean Shamanistic fortunetelling has had on perceptions about prophetic ministry. Recommendations for ministry are offered.
