What Faith-Based Programs Mean to Providers

Church-based social service programs often look like secular programs, but they may be shaped by significant differences in what the effort means to staff and volunteers. For some providers, religious beliefs bring a mandate for social change activity. For others, religious belief is an empowering agent that works to cause transformation on the individual and group level. Certain providers discover in social ministry a process and a means of spiritual transformation within themselves and their faith communities. For others, social outreach is the preparatory work by which clients are fed and provided justice. Read more about the ways that religion enhances the meaning of social service for providers.
