Core Values

  • Insight is valuable. We believe that insight is about blessing others with clarity and capacity. Insight also has value and is worth much if applied rightly.

 

  • Every story has its own arc. We believe that “similar” is not synonymous with “same.” Every individual, church, and city has a unique mission and story that shares similarities, but celebrates uniqueness. History has a redemptive narrative that God is working toward.

 

  •  Anybody can be reached. We believe that connection is intentional. While all people and places are equal, they don’t all have equal influence. This belief allows us to dream big, undaunted by perceived points or barriers of separation. The world is closer than we might at first think.

 

  • Joy brings perspective. We believe that there is a joy in the journey and application of insight. Fun can provide focus. This applies to events, dreams, and processes.
