We cannot accomplish our mission alone and we acknowledge that we need others to fulfill it. We believe that great solutions come from a variety of perspectives, backgrounds, strengths, skills and lessons learned. We can disagree without being disrespectful. We honor others, build them up, and help them to reach their maximum potential. We acknowledge that while our mission is serious, we don’t take ourselves too seriously. We are strongest when we acknowledge our need for God and others.
We are accountable and transparent with one another, our donors, those we serve, and to God. We will be good stewards with all that is entrusted to us. We will set high expectations and follow through on what is asked of us and be committed to constantly learning and growing, seeking new ideas and learning from our past. To fulfill this promise we will be accountable to our core values and mission statement.
We want to operate out of gratitude for God’s provision of people, product and resources to fulfill our mission. We want to be joyful and generous givers and grateful and humble recipients. We believe that we are a part of something bigger than our own stories. We desire to receive and participate in the bigger story that God has for us with grateful hearts.
