Statistic show that more than 20 percent of the entire Korean population is Christian. Despite what some may claim to be an increase in Christian population, the impact of the church on society is diminishing.

Despite what some may claim to be an increase in Christian population, the impact of the church on society is diminishing. What could be the reason for this, and how can we bring the solution to it?

Above all things, it is because the church has not been a spiritually healthy community. Hence churchgoers could not get proper spiritual training.-Balanced Christians are healthy churchgoers and they make up a healthy church.

When the church can train people to be balanced in all aspects of life, a healthy church will be established. Then the church will change the world and make an influence on society. Christian youths are like the dew of the dawn. They are passionate and their faith is pure and genuine. Therefore, they must be the leaders of a church who build a healthy community that can produce many Christians who can greatly influence society.

Through out this paper, the author will use his own church and youth ministry as real life examples to explain how a healthy Christian community can influence society. Also, the author would like to emphasize the importance of cell ministry and how it helps to build a healthy Christian community.-Focusing on the health of the church, the author looked into the community that the early churches had created. Also, the author researched how to restore healthiness to a church by studying normal churchgoers, college groups, small groups, the characteristics of each group, and their leadership training program.

The author used the results from the biblical and theological research to build up his church, and especially the college group that the author is serving as a pastor. Small group activities are also applied to the college group and the outcome is discussed in this paper.-From January of 2006 to June of 2007, the author used the teaching materials written by Ralph W. Neighbour to instruct the college group in his church to produce young Christians with leadership abilities.

The author used NCDs (Natural Church Developments) Eight Characteristics of a Healthy Church Community and surveys to analyze the results that came out from applying the small group ministry to the college group.-Although it is hard to explain about the results from the small group ministry in a simple way, most of the results tended to be positive.

Also, the author personally believes that our college group became much healthier in view of NCDs Eight Characteristics of a Healthy Church Community. Small group ministry helped the college group to grow spiritually, not to grow in numbers. This qualitative growth will automatically contribute to achieving a quantitative growth in the long run. Most of all, producing many young Christians who can have spiritual impact on the world is priceless and the author will be willing to pay any price for it.-Through this research, the author hopes Christians will realize how to make their spiritual lives healthy and balanced.

Moreover, young Christians will learn to be disciples of Jesus who are prepared to glorify and magnify Gods kingdom.
