Worldviews are comprised of beliefs, values, assumptions, and commitments that provide the rationale for how people understand and order their lives. The influence of a person’s worldview is associated with educational issues such as identity formation, approaches to ethics and problem-solving, understanding systemic relationships, and citizenship (Jordan, Bawden, & Bergmann, 2008; Matthews, 2009). The concept has significant importance in Christian education to the point where several institutions claim its formation and guiding assumptions are central to their purpose.
