PERSONAL & MINISTRY VALUES
The following are personal values that the Technical/Communication Director 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 clearly 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 - The Technical/Communications Director’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 image. Leaders must be able to accept criticism and deal patiently with misunderstanding.
:: Teamwork - Team is more highly valued than the 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. The Technical/Communications Director will be committed to this not only in theory, but in personal practice.
