Exploring the Role of Research in Evangelical Service Organizations: Lessons from a University/Agency Partnership
Social Work and Christianity
Amid the continuum of different types of religious organizations and the growing interest of religion in the social work literature, we put forward an article that focuses on evangelical organizations. Our goals in this paper are threefold. First, we examine the context of evangelical organizations providing services and the unique role of research in such settings. Second, we present our findings and experiences from a recent research partnership with an evangelical organization. Third, we set forth recommendations for future university/agency partnerships with evangelical organizations.
