Abstract
This ministry project sought to draw a correlation between Christian spiritual formation and participation in community service. The project's goals were to research the congregation's knowledge and participation in community service and determine how it affected their faith, and how their faith affected their view of community service as they served those in need. The project also served in providing the minister knowledge, tools, and resources increasing his effectiveness in practicing ministry in the local congregation. The project enabled the minister to understand that spiritual formation and community service are significantly interrelated as one shares the gospel locally and globally. The project also served the minister by enhancing his spiritual growth and learning that spiritual formation is a lifelong process, which integrates our life and faith stories into God's story of redemption and reclamation of human life in the present and the future.
