Life Story Magazine Guideposts


Since 1965

Due to the advance of various forms of new media in the 21st century, communication among different generations has become almost impossible and the number of people engaging in reading has been on the decline. These circumstances have made it harder for us to spread God’s words in the form of literature. 

Nonetheless, Guideposts Korea has reached out to the most isolated and underprivileged groups of people in society such as prisoners, soldiers, police officers, patients in hospitals and nursing homes, single mothers, and orphans among others, who are thirsty for God’s lessons. We will move forward and fulfill the calling to spread the gospels of God and inspirational real-life stories to as many people as possible.

This year marks the magazine’s 70th anniversary, and 55 years since its first publication in Korea. In this special year, we will focus more on the next generation and set up a guidepost to guide them in the right direction. 

In addition, we will include the younger generation of advisors and sign an MOU with PCK Newspaper to become an innovative and more passionate magazine, and ultimately achieve the embodiment of Christ’s love. 

We will also make greater efforts to give inspiration and hope to those who have been alienated from society, have overcome failure and frustration, and do not give up going after their dreams despite difficulties. Their inspirational and encouraging life stories will be a religious milestone not only for the Korean society and church but for other parts of the world. 

Please pray for us to fully carry out our ministry. May you all have a blessed New Year full of success, service, and love!

Life Story Magazine Guideposts (한국판)


〈Guideposts〉는 1945년 『적극적 생활 방식』의 저자 노먼 빈센트 필 박사가 창간한 크리스천 교양 잡지로, 한국판 <가이드포스트>는 1965년 국내 최초 영한대역 잡지로 발간되었습니다.


국내 독자들에게 꾸준히 사랑받아 온 한국판 <가이드포스트>는 2018년 5월 하나님의 은혜 가운데 미국 뉴욕에 본사를 두고 있는 <Guideposts>로부터 한국과 동남아시아 판권을 인수해 Guideposts Korea로 새롭게 태어났습니다. 


Guideposts Korea는 모기업인 〈Financial News〉의 ‘모나지 않는 정론, 기업과 함께 성장, 기독교 사랑 구현’의 사시를 바탕으로 제2의 도약을 위해 힘찬 발걸음을 내딛고 있습니다.



Guideposts Magazine is a world’s renowned Christian magazine founded in 1945 by Dr. Norman Vincent Peale, the author of an inspirational book A Guide to Confident Living. The Korean edition was first printed in 1965 with the original English accompanied by its Korean translation.  

In the grace of God, we acquired the Korean and Southeast Asian publication rights from the New York headquarters in May 2018. Guideposts Korea is now ready to make a successful leap to another level under the motto of its parent company, Financial News Media Group, which is as follows: “Moderate and sound arguments, growth alongside businesses, and the embodiment of Christ’s love.”



21세기 들어 넘쳐 나는 뉴미디어와 SNS 등의 발달로 세대 간 소통이 단절돼 왔고, 글 읽는 사람들이 줄어들면서 문서를 통한 선교의 문이 지극히 좁아졌습니다. 그럼에도 불구하고 〈가이드포스트〉는 재소자, 군인, 경찰, 병원 입원 환자, 복지시설(미혼모 시설, 보육원 등) 수용자 등 아직 하나님의 말씀이 갈급한 이들에게 더 많은 하나님의 이야기 그리고 감동과 희망이 있는 Life Story를 제공하고자 노력하고 있습니다.


2020년은 <가이드포스트>가 미국에서 창간된 지 70주년이 되는 해이자, 한국에서 발행된 지 55년이 되는 해입니다. 특별히 55주년을 맞아 다음 세대에 초점을 맞춰 그들이 나아가야 할 방향을 제시하는 이정표로써 그 역할을 감당하고자 합니다. 또한 자문위원의 세대 교체, 한국기독공보와의 MOU 등을 통해 좀 더 젊고 열정 넘치는 <가이드포스트>로 거듭나, ‘기독교 사랑 구현’을 위해 더욱 발로 뛰는 크리스천 잡지가 되겠습니다. 아픈 실패와 좌절을 딛고 일어선 사람들, 어려움 속에서도 꿈을 키우며 끊임없이 도전하는 사람들의 이야기로 소외된 이웃들에게 감동과 희망을 전달하고자 합니다. 뿐만 아니라 이 감동과 희망이 가득한 삶의 이야기는 한국 사회와 교회, 그리고 세계 곳곳에 신앙 계승의 이정표가 될 것입니다.


가이드포스트가 이 사역을 감당할 수 있도록 독자 여러분의 관심과 기도 부탁드립니다.
