THE INTEGRATION OF HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS SERVING AMONG FAMILIES IN HOMELESS CRISIS FOR TRANSFORMATIONAL MINISTRY

Author
Scott Mills D.Min.
Abstract
This project explored the transformational growth of high school students who served children in homeless crisis by implementing a pilot program at the Fort Wayne Charis House. The findings revealed student growth in three goal areas: greater cultural understanding, greater appreciation for life situation, and greater motivation to serve. The project explored biblical foundations and the causes and consequences of families in homeless crisis. It also examined similarities between “service learning” in the public schools and integrative ministry. Through this program, students built critical thinking skills, positive relationships, and a sense of responsibility as they engaged in serving their community.

A Christian world view of economics

Author
Robert James Romano
Abstract
This marketplace ministry focuses on the question: What is the Christian worldview of economics? In order to answer this question, the following topics will be researched in order to determine which of the major economic systems best adheres to the biblical material: stewardship, freedom, work, justice, mercy and the economic systems. The goal of this thesis project is to create a seminar on the Christian worldview of economics that can be used to educate Christians about biblical economic principles and to survey Christians about their worldview of economics in relation to the marketplace. I expect the seminar to help Christians make a stronger connection of their faith to work. The seminar was designed for Heartist Ministries, which is my own para-church worldview training and apologetics ministry, but it can also be easily adapted for a church Sunday School curriculum or formatted for an at home small group Bible Study program. The pre-seminar and post-seminar surveys and tests were also developed for this thesis.
