    Urban modern life with the development of communication technology has led to moral and social problems for children, adolescents, youth, and even adults. This generation needs the language of genuine touch of love by creative actions to transform their lives for better life values. One model of urban ministries is incarnational living ministry, meaning to be a part of the community, in which we serve. Reflecting on the life and the ministry of Jesus Christ while He was on this earth, has given the idea of a ministry that implements service-learning for a social transformation. This service learning is done at Pelangi Kristus Christian School at Surabaya, Indonesia. The high school students serve children from poor families background surrounding the school. This service learning has a hope for the lives of those poor children may be transformed and they have better values in their lives. In another way, by serving them, the students may also grow in their character and personality. They learn to show compassion for other children�s need and develop good attitudes and character as well. This incarnational living ministry through learning service has been part of the school curriculum for 8 years. Starting with 10 children at 2010, and after 8 years the number has reached approximately 120 children. Most of the parents of those children supported this service learning, and giving the witness that their children are growing intellectually, mentally, emotionally also spiritually. The incarnational living ministry as service learning, is an effective educational process for the students as well as for the the children they serve.
