Bringing Christian Education to Life: The Transformative Power of Service-Learning

Lynn Swaner and Roger Erdvig

Service-learning helps students connect classroom learning with genuine service to their communities, thereby helping them to master academic concepts better and learn how to apply them in real life. The research not only demonstrates the positive academic outcomes of service-learning, but also shows that the practice promotes civic engagement, leadership development, and a long-term desire to serve others. This session will draw on the authors’ new book on service-learning in Christian schools and their extensive work in schools, to offer a proven roadmap for harnessing the power of service-learning in your school.
