PERSONAL & MINISTRY VALUES– The following are personal values that this staff member should seek to demonstrate:
God and the Gospel – Seek at all times to honor God and glorify Him alone. Regardless of the task, ministry, or effort, honoring God and living in line with the Gospel come first.
Scripture – Biblical principles are to be valued more than “current events” or practices for “the successful Christian life.”
Conflict – Exercises the ability to resolve conflict Biblically.
Faithfulness – Being faithful is more valued than being “successful” – Although “results” are important in our ministries, success should be a by-product of our faithfulness, and quantitative results are only one way to evaluate outcomes. Relationships are more important to future success than results in the short term.
Personal Holiness – One’s private life is valued more than the public life or ministry – True spiritual life starts in private, extends to the family, and will be exhibited in the public.
Wisdom in Waiting – Patience rather than pressure to demonstrate results. Strive to allow God to work in each person’s life on His timetable, not ours.
Meekness – Being open is more important than maintaining an image. Leaders must be able to accept criticism and deal patiently with misunderstanding.
Teamwork – A team is more highly valued than an individual. We are all part of Christ’s body for service and can function best only when we work together.
Mission – God’s mission for this world gives the church its mission. This person will be committed to this not only in theory but in personal practice.
