CORE VALUES

  1. Integrity  Psalms 25:21 Let integrity and uprightness preserve me. We do what is right even when no one is watching. This core value comes first for a reason. Without integrity, we will not have the impact that we desire. We take this very seriously. We should always do what we say we will do , be on time and at all designated rehearsals ect…We will extend grace when it comes to mistakes and errors, giving people a chance to grow and improve in their jobs. We are not as tolerant of violations in this area. We need to know we can depend and trust our coworkers without question.
  2. Excellence  Psalms133:1 How pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity. We are constantly redefining our goals, expectations, boundaries, and potential. Our team’s talents and performance vary from person to person. We simply believe that regardless of your talent or performance today, you should want to be better tomorrow. We want teammates that are constantly striving to learn and growing in the spirt of unity and excellence. 
  3. Team Worker Development  Matthew 23:12 He that shall humbles himself shall be exalted. We strive to create an atmosphere that inspires and enables people to reach their full potential. As a company, we want to meet our team workers where they are as they strive for excellence our goal is to provide the resources and inspiration required to “move” them forward on their path. Sometimes this means they advance within our company and sometimes it means they move on to other opportunities. Either way, we want to help!
  4. Spiritual Growth  Matthew 5:14 Ye are the light of the world. We provide the opportunity for all to know God and make Him known. No one who works in our company is required to believe what we believe. However, we make it clear early on that God is the owner of our company. Therefore, all that we do centers around Him. We will not force anyone to believe, but they will certainly have opportunities to hear. 
  5. Community Impact  Matthew 25: 40 In as much as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren , ye have done it unto me. We use our talents and treasures to make a difference in those who need it most. We believe we are part of the community in which we work and therefore have the responsibility to give back to that community rather in giving of our time, gifts and talents , performances or financial resources .
