Following Jesus as the Leadership Example

As Anabaptists, Jesus is the center of our faith and our model for leadership.

“It will not be so among you; but whoever wishes to be great among you must be your servant” Matthew 20:26

Fostering Collaboration for Mutual Benefit

As Anabaptists, community is at the center of our lives. Within community, we seek the good of all through collaboration, partnership, and mutual aid.

“If then there is any encouragement in Christ, any consolation from love, any sharing in the Spirit, any compassion and sympathy, make my joy complete: be of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility regard others as better than yourselves. Let each of you look not to your own interests, but to the interests of others. Let the same mind be in you that was in Christ Jesus,” Philippians 2:1-5

Pursuing Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion

As Anabaptists, reconciliation is the center of our work. We seek peace, wholeness, and justice for and with all people.

“The second is this, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these,” Mark 12:31

“Learn to do good; seek justice, rescue the oppressed; defend the orphan, plead for the widow,” Isaiah 1:17

Inspiring Creativity and Excellence

We are all created in the image of God, the creator, and are called to serve God with excellence.

“For we are what he has made us, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand to be our way of life,” Ephesians 2:10

“Finally, beloved, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is pleasing, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence and if anything is worthy of praise, think about these things,” Philippians 4:8
