Center for Renewal

Service Learning

Service learning, service projects, mission trips—call them what you’d like— they are an excellent means to transform the lives of individuals and the ministries of congregations. The Center for Renewal is available to leaders who are considering implementing service learning opportunities in their congregation to help with implementation, processing and funds. To get the most out of service learning opportunities, though, congregations are encouraged to offer reflection on the event or trip after it is over. For instance, instead of just feeling good about painting an older person’s porch, faculty from Grand View are available to help participants learn about the root causes of poverty among the elderly, what that says about our society, and how the church can be God’s agents for meaningful social change.
