The following are embedded in our DNA and shape how we do the things we do.Â We relentlessly seek to live out these values:
â€œWeâ€™re the catapult not the carrierâ€, â€œour fruit grows on othersâ€™ treesâ€
We seek to come alongside and help accelerate what God is already doing through others.Â We are not in competition with any church planting organizations but have a posture of â€œyou can do it, how can we help?â€
In essentials unity, in non-essentials liberty, in all things charityâ€¦with a precious few essentials
Diversity of models and approaches.Â We seek to platform the aggregation of what God is up to rather than one model or approach.
â€œYesterday faithfully becomes todayâ€, â€œWe seek to look out the window and see things before others doâ€
We are future biased and continually look for what God seems to be up to around us.Â Most productive work happens in the trenches today.Â We seek to help leaders be more effective and productive today by helping them see around the next corner yesterday.
Frugality and Stewardship
â€œFaithful with little, trusted with muchâ€.
We seek to remain small and decentralized in our overhead with innovative funding models (e.g. Business for Mission) that are not donor reliant.
Partnerships and Collaboration
â€œWe limit doing what others can do betterâ€
We seek to work synergistically with others to accomplish more together than the sum of the individual parts.
â€œGo big or go homeâ€.
We seek to multiply â€œoneâ€ into â€œone hundredâ€ in all that we do (as a way of modeling and of stewardship).
Islands of Health and Strength
â€œWhere is God at work and how do we join him?â€.
We seek to find and come alongside strong leaders, surrendered to God, to help accelerate what God is doing through them.
From Clarity to Action
â€œIdeas without fruit are simply academicâ€.
We seek to help people get clarity on whatâ€™s next for them including how to embrace and implement ideas, principles and strategies and then to act.
