Our Core Values

 

Our Mission:

Bring In:
We pursue, reach and connect students with God and with other students in our community of faith.

Build Up:
We equip our students with life and leadership skills and support them as they grow in their knowledge and understanding of God and His plan for their lives.

Send Out:
We release our students to make an impact in the world as they serve God and each other with their time, treasure, talents, and witness.

 


Our Strategy:
We are committed to foster a community and culture which inspires students to deeply connect with God and each other.  We create and utilize resources and systems which enable students to grow as passionate followers of Jesus.  We provide opportunities for students to learn and practice servant leadership, releasing them to be catalysts  of influence in the Church and into the greater Culture.

 

 

Our Values:


Authentic: 
We value community and culture where students can be themselves and be enthusiastically embraced for who they are.
I Corinthians 2:3-4

 

Available:
We value community and culture where our students feel connected and important - outside of the weekly gatherings, where they will be supported by having someone show up for a game, school, or family function. As leaders, we want to be available and counted on when things are hard.
Acts 4:32

Fun:
We value community and culture where students can come and anticipate a good time. Ministry isn't all serious and intense, sometimes it comes through laughter!
Proverbs 17:22

Outward-Focused: 
We value community and culture that places others first. We exist to bring people into the community we are building and to share the truth we have about Jesus Christ. Being the hands and feet of God.
Acts 5:34

Relational:
We value community and culture that fosters relationships and provides an environment of ministry to and through our students.
I Thessalonians 2:8

Spiritual Growth:
We value community and culture where students are growing closer to Jesus and becoming more like Him.
Hebrews 6:1

Sending:
We value community and culture where students are equipped and released to lead and serve.
