There are many SDA Filipino Churches around AIIAS but some may not receive proper pastoral care because of a lack of Filipino pastors. However, many Korean students have served in a pastoral capacity for some Filipino Churches around AIIAS. This research suggests a strategy for pastoral ministry in Philippine local churches through AIIAS Korean students. This research selects four examples of pastoral ministry in the Bible: Moses, Samuel, Jesus, and Paul who ministered as leaders, organizers, teachers, counselors, preachers, evangelists, and trainers. This research studies pastoral ministry through the perspectives of theology and Adventism. This research affirms that Korean students should know the geographical history, religious background and social structure of Cavite province and of the SDA Churches around AIIAS. It seeks to give Korean students a better understanding of Filipino culture and needs, and provide them with a helpful resource for ministry in Filipino churches. Finally, this research suggests a strategy for pastoral ministry in the Biga Company through the service of Korean students. First, Biga Company is analysed. It then suggests the recruitment of Korean students for Biga Company and the preliminary training which they should receive. It describes strategies for practical pastoral ministry for the Biga Company. These strategies may improve the training of church members by Korean student pastors, as well as enhance worship service, evangelism, visitation, counseling, and the promotion of church building. This research may be useful to those who want to serve in pastoral ministry in Filipino churches. Proper implementation of the strategies suggested may help to increase the growth of Filipino Churches and bring blessings to Korean students who serve in them.
