We will strive to live out our Christian values in the way we relate to one another and undertake our ministry.
As a Ministry Team we value:
Mutual Care. We will be attentive to one another and intentional about supporting, respecting, encouraging and forgiving one another. We will be a team. We will do our best to help each other excel in ministry and grow as whole persons.
Open Honesty. We will speak the truth in love. We will not sweep things under the carpet. We will honour our differences, listen to one another, be influenced by one another and build one another up.
Positive Attitudes. We will aim at excellent communication. We will shun negative talking and thinking. We will choose to affirm, encourage and smile. We will speak well of one another and believe God for good things among us. We will have FUN!
Bold Faith. We embrace mission-driven risk and expect people to learn from failure. We will foster each other’s passion for Christ.
Healthy Improvement. We will celebrate our advances and successes. At the same time we will foster a healthy dissatisfaction with the way things are and will always strive for better. We will applaud working smarter (not longer hours) and encourage one another to maintain wise work habits.
Developing Others. We will build into the lives of others and share the work of ministry. We will empower those around us and multiply the impact of our efforts.
