Instead of relying on unwritten rules to communicate our culture, we took the time to document them. None of these values are new. Bit by bit, they were woven into our conversations, meetings, and events. But having them written down allows us to communicate them effectively to new leaders and serves as a reminder and inspiration to our current leaders.
Here are a few more, and I’ll share the remaining ones tomorrow.
6) We will do anything short of sin to reach people who don’t know Christ. To reach people no one is reaching, we’ll have to do things no one is doing.
7) We will lead the way with irrational generosity. We truly believe it is more blessed to give than to receive.
8) We will laugh hard, loud and often. Nothing is more fun than serving God with people you love!
9) We will be known for what we are for, not what we’re against. There are already enough jerks in the world.
How do you communicate your church’s values?
