We lead with our values. These are not simply nice words. They frame the structure for everything we do and everything we say.
- We show people that Jesus loves them.
- We pray because we are dependent on God.
- We are motivated by love to serve our neighbors.
- We believe everyone is unique.
- We are all influencers.
We show people that Jesus loves them.
Glorifying Jesus Christ is the main goal of all that we do. Every aspect of Orchard ultimately exists to serve others and introduce them personally to Jesus Christ.
We pray because we are dependent on God.
Prayer is multifaceted communication with God – upward, inward, and outward – and it is an intentional component of all of our ministries. Prayer is the tool God has given us to communicate with him for our personal growth and for clarity concerning our service in the world.
We are motivated by love to serve our neighbors.
We serve, not out of a sense of duty or obligation, but because God loves us: we are able to receive his love, and we want to pass that love on.
We believe everyone is unique.
God creates people in his image with unique gifts, talents, and abilities. We believe ministry is most effective when it is done around the ways God has created His people. It is by leaning in to the ways God has created us that we have the potential to shine our light the brightest in the world.
