The Impact of a Service-Learning Project on Undergraduate Students' Faith Development and Spiritual Formation: Outcomes of an Organization and Administrative Behavior Course
Helm-Stevens, Roxanne; Kipley, Dan; Pheifer, Todd
International Journal of Educational Methodology, v4 n3 p187-194 2018
Spiritual growth and development is frequently cited as an outcome of participation in service-learning projects. However, little research has focused on measuring the students' ability to understand the connection between the service-learning experience and their personal faith and the ability to live out their Christian values in the field. Notably missing from this particularly limited area of study is the Christian values convergence of being able to understand the worth of all people and a desire to be engaged in serving the community. Encompassing both quantitative and qualitative research methods, this study investigates undergraduate business students' perceptions of the impact of a semester-long urban service-learning project on their spiritual lives and faith formation. Specific attention is given to exploring the students' perception of faith as demarcated by the Christian praxis of the students' relationship with God and with others.
