Our Leadership Culture
We strive to create a staff culture of fun, autonomy, and integrity, where people have the freedom to experiment, make mistakes, learn, and grow in both their inner life (their journey with God) and their outer life (their skills and role in the organization). In addition to the 5 Ms, our staff embraces these 5 leadership values:
Deep Personal Formation

- Listening well, seeking first to understand before being understood.
- Speaking clearly, directly, honestly, respectfully, and in a timely manner.
- Consistently clarifying expectations.
Healthy Team Unity
- Supporting each other by acting for the good of our whole church with the fulfillment of our mission in mind, no matter what our position.
- Speaking up about elephants in the room.
- Celebrating, appreciating, and spotlighting other ministries.
- Respectfully approaching people about concerns and puzzling issues.
- Taking the time to offer high-quality work in all that we do (teaching, design, counseling, communications).
- Taking initiative to solve problems that we see.
- Regularly mobilizing others to serve and lead within our community.
- Taking responsibility for our decisions and actions and learning from our mistakes.
Cultivation of Joy

- Mastery: Working to create an environment where everyone can grow in their gifts and skills and thrive at the very top of their potential.
