The Code: Keeping it Brief

As we started to write out our values, we had more material than we could include. We wanted to keep The Code short enough that people could take it all in and remember relevant points during the course of ministry. Who says 13 is an unlucky number?

10)    We always bring our best. Excellence honors God and inspires people.

11)    The only constant in our ministry is change. God is always doing a new thing. Why we do what we do never changes. How we do it must change.

12)    We don’t recruit volunteers; we release leaders. Volunteers do good things but leaders change the world.

13)    We’re living in the “good old days.” We’re thankful for God’s blessings today and expect even more tomorrow.

    This is so GREAT! You need to let the entire church hear/read this in some way!!! Is this a possibility? I think people will get so much out of this for their own personal life… as leaders at home and in the world.

    #12 is alive and well and has changed me. LC Hville is personally invested in me in SO many ways. They want to encourage anyone who is hungry to lead for Christ. The ENTIRE staff encourages me to STEP UP and Lead!! I also want to send a shout out to LC for The Series ( a while back) about…being a “minister”…It has changed my perspective for life! My one cent… People thrive on knowing that they matter and can impact this world in some way!

    I’m reading these in our leaders meeting tonight. does such a great job of letting the world see what’s going on in your leadership culture. Transparency and humility walk hand in hand.
