The Faith+Lead Framework
Faith+Leaders are a passionate group of lay and ordained Christian leaders who represent a wide variety of traditions and perspectives. But for all our differences, we have some core commitments grounding our work. If these sound like something you can get behind, you're in the right place.
- The Triune God is at work in the world.
- God is with us.
- The reconciling and renewing gospel of Jesus Christ is a matter of life and death for the whole world.
- The Holy Spirit will continue to gather and sustain the local church.
- God is the primary leader of the local church.
- Following Jesus means joining God's work in daily life.
We embody these beliefs by:
- Listening—because that's where innovation starts.
- Reflecting—because defining the problem takes time and care.
- Experimenting—because we discover the future as we try new things.
- Collaborating—because change happens best together.
- Implementing breakthrough practices—because practices transform culture.
- Being hosted by our neighbors—because Jesus gathers us in to send us out.
