Five Ways to Incorporate Religion in Social Service Ministry

Research on how churches engage in faith-based social service ministry has uncovered five ways religious groups inject a spiritual dimension in their community work. The Congregations, Communities and Leadership Development Project at Eastern Baptist Theological Seminary described those five methods as passive, invitational, relational, integrated-optional, and integrated-mandatory. See this brief introduction to these ministry elements, with a helpful comparison chart, in an article at http://hirr.hartsem.edu/research/churchoutreach_includerel.html.
