Values

This page shows what I believe about the ministry I have been called to.
 

Foundations

The foundations for my ministry are:

  • A belief that this is God's work - I am his servant. So prayer supporters are valued and essential co-workers.
  • A determination to focus my work on the gospel of Jesus Christ.
  • An enthusiasm for the Spirit's gifts of administration equipping the Church to serve Christ in the world.
  • A clear understanding and right application of Scripture to provide the basic principles for all activity.
     
     

Principles

I seek to display

Wholeness
The importance in Christian work of spiritual and relational health, and of mental and physical fitness.

Service
The highest possible standards of pastoral sensitivity, empathy, confidentiality and care, always valuing people before systems.

Innovation
The spark of creativity, holding a clear understanding of today’s Church and society, while being ready to be prophetically counter-cultural when required.

Quality
Excellence in all forms of output, in value for money, and in reliability and efficiency.

Simplicity
Bringing healing through the most straightforward solutions that are possible in a complex world.
