OUR STAFF CULTURE
We serve and develop people and provide clear direction. We serve people with prompt follow-up, care for people, develop people, and empower people.
We work in teams, protect team health, and invest in team development. We all have specific roles on a team. We are thorough in our team member hiring process, making sure that we hire people who resonate with our DNA and culture. We create team plans, protect team unity, and help each other become more effective team members. We also recognize that Chase Oaks is part of a broader team, so we partner with local churches and organizations who are committed to meeting both local and global needs.
We work hard, play hard, and rest well. We plan our work and work our plans (team plans and personal plans). We are intentional about having fun (staff events and team events), and we make sure we stay replenished (weekly day off, DAWG [Day Away with God] days, vacations, and sabbaticals).
We are constantly learning from the past, from other organizations, and from the best practitioners by participating in Passport and LEAD, conducting best practice visits, having monthly development conversations with team leaders, seeking feedback often, networking, partnering, reading, and attending conferences.
