Core Values

Dependence on God

Daily reaffirming our dependence on God, we discern how God is moving and empowering our ministry as the Christian community prays.


Using the resources God provides, we relentlessly tackle challenges and seize opportunities with faith, creativity, and grit. Our strength is in what we learn when we fail.


We are stronger together. We deliver more successful results through shared resources, staff and mutual goals.


We provide complete visibility into the successes and failures of our exploration as we learn and grow. It is baked into our culture as we collaborate across organizations.

Scientific Mindset

We move deliberately and quickly, using insights and data to guide our decisions and testing to achieve breakthroughs. We tackle challenges without delay.
Test. Learn. Repeat.
