"I believe that social work is a ministry and I am thankful that God has guided me to this wonderful profession. Social workers have the privilege of heeding the charge set forth in James 1:27, to live out true religion by caring for the oppressed."
"As social workers, we are able to do this through all forms of practice, whether in micro-practice settings with individuals and families; in mezzo-practice settings with groups; or in macro-practice settings with communities and organizations. We are able to live out this charge whether conducting research, engaging in policy practice, or practicing in clinical settings."
