Abstract
This research aimed to illustrate the details of poverty problems in Evangelical Christian Church Halmehera (GMIH)congregants residing in Morotai IslandRegency according to the congregant or the poor themselves.The method used was a qualitative method with data collection techniques through observation, in-depth interviews, and focus group disscusion (FGD). The data were analyzed using emic approach which is a derivation of the paradigm of phenomenological research, such a naturalism which seeks to uncover phenomena based on what is known, believed, felt, and acted upon by the congregant or community becoming the object of research.Based on the results of the research, it can be concluded that the concept of emerging poverty tends to be very subjective indicating that the community/church does not feel as poor as what was stated by the government in this case the Central Bureau of Statistics.This is very much influenced by the various backgrounds that have developed in the subjective life of poor communities/congregants in South Morotai. Subjectively, the behavior of poor communities/congregants at the research site is influenced by internal factors (congregant’s theological understanding and level of education), and external factors(the impact of social conflict in 1999 and equitable distribution of government assistance and availability of natural resources).
