We expect all staff to commit to the following “Leadership DNA”:
1. Character counts. The most important thing in leadership is personal integrity.
2. Be spiritually strong. In order for leaders to withstand the temptations and trials of life, there must be a daily commitment to prayer, personal Bible reading, and accountability to other Christians.
3. Always start with a “yes”. Organizations move ahead most freely when people have a positive attitude and extend, as much as possible, a “yes” posture to requests and new strategic ideas for ministry that line up within our mission and anchor points.
4. Be nice. People usually want to follow humble, gracious, and encouraging leaders. So be that kind of leader.
5. A commitment to evangelism and discipleship. Leaders must model and teach a balanced commitment to both evangelism and discipleship. For evangelism, leaders must model the 3 steps of
1) prayer for the lost, 2) cultivation of relationships, and 3) a verbal witness.
6. A commitment to excellence. While God uses us even in our weakness, the Gospel demands we give our best/seek excellence in every area of our ministry.
