What Makes a Social Service Program Faith-Based

Congregations, Communities and Leadership Development Project directors, Ronald J. Sider and Heidi Rolland Unruh, have developed criteria to distinguish between full-fledged faith-based social service programs/projects and groups that receive limited support from a faith community. In the article, "What is Church Based Social Ministry?," published by the Hartford Institute for Religion Research (Hartford Seminary), they explain what conditions must exist in order for a program to rise to the level of a faith-based social service ministry, along with examples of programs that do and do not fit the criteria.
