I. Introduction

KMCF developed two day program accommodating to Korean military personnels based on the participants' vivid and religious experiences of AMCF program and AMCF manual.

KMCF has fostered the officer-oriented small group leaders by visiting the main bases quarterly since 2007.

In order to successfully accomplish Vision 2020, KMCF puts every effort to settle down the KMCF interaction program as a training course for military personnels by cooperating closely with the chaplains, military churches, MEAK, and Vision 2020 headquarters.

In other words, the religious activities within the barracks such as blind bases without chaplains and churches, forward fields, OP, ships, and etc. will be revitalized by placing the active personnels as small group leaders. Most of all, I hope that the IBS and the CP will be used as the tool to shift Korean military personnel as God's sheep.

II Necessities of KMCF Interaction

1. Korean Chaplain System and Vision 2020

A. 1,004 military churches were built in Korean military bases and 268 chaplains are currently involved in military pastoral duties. Due to Korean military environment, the military churches and chaplains are only located in over battalion sized bases. To make up for the deficit of chaplains, 450 civil religious workers are actively involved in military pastoral duties. Since Korean military set up the plan of "Vision 2020" before 1998, baptismal activities in the military bases have been actively performed. Due to active activities by chaplains, 220 thousand personnels were annually baptized at each military institute including officers, sergeant, and soldiers so that 250 thousand baptists with 30 thousand existing christians are supposed to move toward the public life after retirement.

B. New soldiers were baptized in training bases such as boot camps and military schools upon the analysis of the previous resultant statistics. Most of the baptized in training bases were placed in below company sized bases where neither military churches nor pastors were in place. Consequently about 15% of the baptized soldiers presume to attend the church.

2. Status of KMCF Military Evangelism Activities

A. Organization

KMCF organization is composed of a central body and district bodies. A central body is made up of Army, Navy, Air force, and Marine Corps. And MCF is placed in above brigade level under central body. On the whole, 28 district bodies, 204 sub-bodies, and 60,000 members are included under KMCF.

C. Activities of central body are mainly focused on church services and the large scaled assembles. A day retreat is a special service for senior officers and its objective is to pray and to listen God's wording. Additionally, 6.25 Revival Retreat meeting to keep in mind of the Korean War is a special service for privates and its objective is to pray, to praise, and to listen God's wording. Therefore, the Interaction program is the unique one which is aim to train the small group leaders. Because there is a limited training program, there is the lack of training program for new christians who were placed in blind bases. There is no program under KMCF district bodies for MCF members to assume the duty of the small group leaders. Additionally, it is true that any appropriate program was not developed for small group activities. Owing to these fact, not only new christians baptized but also existing christians did not have any chances to continue their christian life and develop their spirit in below battalion level where no churches and chaplains are in place.

D. According to estimated statistics, the new soldiers who were baptized by chaplains or pastors are assume to reach up to only 10 to 15%. Moreover, most of the baptized soldiers were assigned to the blind bases and the number of retired soldiers without religious activities after baptism was increased owing to the decreased number of the chaplains. Starting from year 2008, Won Buddhism was officially involved in military religions. The competition for recruiting more believers among Christianity, Buddhism, Catholicism and Won Buddhism have been getting deeper and deeper since then. Leaning towards the specific religion had been prohibited since 2008 so that it resulted in freezing religious activities such as large scaled assembly and etc.

3. Necessities of training the small group leaders

A. It is necessary to increase the activities of MCF members in blind bases where no chaplains and churches are located. It will not only strengthen the faith in christianity of 60,000 MCF members, but also foster them as a small group leaders, "Learning by teaching.

B. It will resolve a burden caused by the leaning toward a specific religion by shifting from the large scaled assembly and church oriented activities to the training of a small group leaders.

C. We can achieve positive effects by interacting with chaplains, MCF, and MEAK. Chaplains will manage 1004 church, and strengthen the belief of church members, and activate the various training programs. 60,000 MCF Members will foster new comers and believers in blind bases with chaplains' spiritual supports. MEAK and Vision 2020 headquarters will support those not only by maintaining smooth interaction between chaplains and MCF but also by observing the inter-activities between the baptizers and the civilian churches.

IV KMCF Interaction vision

1. KMCF is supposed to reconstruct international Interaction Program to accommodate Korean Forces military environment and devise a plan to foster 30,000 small group leaders until 2020. The barrack culture concentrated upon God's message will be settled down by disseminating the IBS & CP from headquarters to single unit. Additionally, the small group leaders will revitalize the MCF activities in blind bases where no chaplains and churches are in place. Through these efforts and commitment, the objective and vision of KMCF must be achieved.

2. To divide the Strategy into 3 phases

A. 1st phase up to the 2007: Let's execute the Interaction program at 4 areas around the capital and central bodies as a model case, by recognizing the necessities and building up the consensus, which will be hosted by the main central officers.

B. 2nd phase from 2008 to 2010: Use the trained leaders as the instructors and execute the Interaction Program 4 times a year to increase the number of small group meetings up to 204 districts.

C. 3rd phase from 2011 to 2020: Settle down the small group meetings in any military bases. Introduce and practice the KMCF Interaction Program during 6.25 Revival Retreat Meeting. All christian officers are required to settle down the KMCFinteraction program in their bases, homes, and churches. To develop the combined activities of Chaplains and MCF, the chaplain should supervise and support to revitalize the whole religious activities under his concerned bases, and motivate the small group leaders with biblical coaching and encouragement. MCF officers should not only render devoted services as core of small group leader, but also maintain close relationship and do their best to get support and coordination with chaplains. For the future, all activities in bases must be monitored including the management of graduates who needs to be cared and re-educated. And also the military churches which teaches the different bible studies besides IBS/CP need to be monitored as well in order to complement each other.

V Conclusion

KMCF will conduct a campaign to settle down a Interaction Program as a training program within the barrack to achieve Korean military evangelism and national evangelism simultaneously with Vision 2020. As a result, all military christians including new believers can participate in church service, bible study, and prayers more than once a week at the military churches and the small group activities.

Continuously maintaining small group activities, we have to foster faithful leaders by re-education if necessary and monitor our actual activities. The small Group Leaders who have been trained in KMCF will grow into the next generation leaders by participating various AMCF activities and will be used as a tool to build God's world in his/her life time.
