On July 14, 1997 Doug was invited to speak at a Presbyterian Church conference in Columbus, Ohio. To his surprise, all those present were Korean. Meeting these wonderful men and women of God sparked a burden in Doug’s heart for the Korean nation. The Lord led Doug through a time of deep study of this unique and beautiful culture to better be able to present the Father Heart of God to Korean Christians.
God opened the door for many more invitations to speak from Senior Pastors at Korean churches, youth pastors, ministry leaders and conference coordinators in over 20 states in the US as well as in Canada, Paraguay and Brazil. Korean Christians respond enthusiastically to the insights Doug is able to present, particularly to the challenges Korean leaders and fathers face in being able to live in ways that reflect the Biblical father heart of God.
The Korean culture has very definite understandings of leadership and fatherhood. These impact our expectations of who God is and what He demands of us and our ministry. The costs are high. Research shows that 60% of Korean pastors’ children do not follow God.
“Your marriage is more important than your ministry. Your children are more important than your ministry. What does Scripture say? Let’s look and see…”
– Excerpt from Doug Easterday’s Father Heart of God audio training series.
The message series are so relevant that every year over 50% of Doug’s teaching events are held at the request of Korean ministries and churches. He is available to bring this same teaching to your conference or church. If God puts this on your heart, please check his schedule for date availability and contact him directly at DougEasterday [at] msn [dot] com to start praying together about your event.
You could also benefit from listening to the entire Father Heart of God training course specially prepared for a Korean audience. The complete audio series of nine 80 minute lectures with Korean translation, recorded live at a YWAM Conference in Toronto, Canada is available on CD. For more details and to order click here.

If you have gone through this training yourself and benefited from it, please consider encouraging other leaders to pray about inviting Doug Easterday to speak at their churches or events, or you could send the audio training set as a special gift to friends or family. This is an excellent learning tool for those whose Korean is stronger than their English. This teaching series that builds a deeper understanding of the Father Heart of God has already made a difference to thousands of Korean leaders; join with us in offering this valuable training to thousands more.
The Father Heart of God Ministries is funded completely by donations from faithful friends, the sale of training materials, and speaking honoraria. If God puts it on your heart to support this strategic ministry to Korean Christian leaders, please consider making a donation today.
“Pastor Easterday has impacted our ministry more than any other non-Korean speaker. His understanding of God and leadership has changed my life and all those who hear his teaching. I long for every Korean to hear the message he shares from God.”

“Doug Easterday understands our culture and loves the Korean people. His sensitivity to Korean culture allows great freedom for our people to receive the Word God speaks through him. He has challenged me and our students towards a much deeper understanding of the father heart of God. Every Korean Christian would benefit from hearing his message.”
