This upper level course focuses on service and mission as a central motivation for all we are and do in response to the call from God for a special assignment to share the Good News of Jesus with our neighbors through both word and deed. By combining the academic study of service, missions, and social change through a 3 credit seminar in the spring semester (SERV 231) and a 1 credit reflection retreat during the following fall (SERV 232) with a 6-8 week summer service-learning activity - students are given a unique opportunity to relate classroom learning with meaningful and practical lived experiences. The course draws on perspectives from critical theory, education, sociology, theology, missions and concepts of service-learning in a discussion-oriented setting. In addition to excellent readings and in depth conversations, one highlight of this course is the opportunity to craft an individualized research-based grant proposal for the 6-8 week intensive summer service-learning experience. Depending on the proposed summer experience, students can receive a cross-cultural waiver.
