Experiential Service Practicum
The Experiential Service Practicum (ESP) is a 21-day service-learning assignment in May 2022, placing students from all schools and departments to serve alongside staff and volunteers in a local church setting. Food and lodging will be provided while participating in this project. The only expense to you is the cost of travel to and from the church.
The goal of the Experiential Service Practicum is:
- To teach students the importance of serving in a local church.
- To learn how to utilize your gifts and strengths in creative ways as service to the church.
- To provide meaningful experiences of service-learning associated with the church.
Once accepted, students will take a 1 credit hour seminar upon returning from spring break leading up to the project placement in May. There is no cost for the seminar. Upon completion of the Experiential Service Practicum, students will receive 20 hours of service and 1 academic credit. After completing this application, you will be contacted by Dr. William Lamb’s office to schedule an in-person interview and future discussion about the Experiential Service Practicum.
