Abstract: This presentation will identify and examine significant changes that have impacted the field of social work in recent decades and the implications of these changes for Christian social work education and practice. Recent years have witnessed dramatic social, economic, technological, and environmental changes throughout the world. What are the new roles and tasks of Christian social workers? What new knowledge and skill sets must they possess in order to carry out these new responsibilities? What has remained unchanged in the practice of Christian social work, and what traditional knowledge, values, beliefs, and practice skills should Christian social workers cling to in order to remain true to their calling and provide effective services in a changing world?
