As Twelve21 Global advances its vision and mission, we commit to a set of core values. They serve as guides, remind us of our priorities, and influence our decisions and behaviors as we pursue our mission.
What Sets Us Apart?
We desire Jesus’ life, teachings, and character to shape and guide all aspects of our ministry. We acknowledge that Christ is the source of everything we are. He created us, called us, gifted us, commissioned us, and that every blessing that we receive comes from Him. (Col. 1:15-20)
We desire that those who lead and serve in our ministry be people who have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and can clearly articulate the Gospel. (1 Cor 11:1, 1 Pet. 3:15)
We desire to reach people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, as revealed in scripture, so that they too can find their hope in Him. (Matt. 12:21)
We desire to lead and serve with humility as servants who act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with the Lord. (Mark 10:45, Mic. 6:8)
WE STRIVE TO:
Act justly – We speak and act honestly, seek truth, pursue excellence, and conduct our ministry with accountability, integrity, and a good conscience.
Love mercy – Our love for mercy compels us to be Christ’s hands and feet, whether the recipient deserves it or not.
Walk humbly with God – We cultivate our relationship with God, which provides the power and passion for engagement with the world. In humility, we put others first. We listen, extend forgiveness, sustain an attitude of gratefulness, and remain teachable.
We desire to be a compassion-filled team that recognizes the suffering of others and takes appropriate action to help.
We extend the open hand of fellowship and kindness to people from all backgrounds, walks of life, and circumstances. Jesus was compassionate towards those in the crowds and crossed cultural and societal barriers to help the oppressed. (1 John 3:17, Luke 7:47, Luke 10:33, Mark 6:34)
We extend God’s love, grace, and mercy because it was first lavished on us. (1 John 3:18, Phil. 2:1-2)
We desire to glorify God by our commitment to excellence and integrity in all that we do. God is worthy of our best—every time, all the time. (1 Cor. 10:31, Col. 3:23).
Our desire for excellence and integrity is motivated by our gratitude to God. As the redeemed, we keep his steadfast love in our sights and desire to walk in faithfulness. (Ps. 26)
We acknowledge that every good and perfect gift is from above, and are joyful recipients of the charge to use our gifts in service to one another, ‘as good stewards of God’s varied grace.’ (Jas. 1:17, 1 Pet. 4:10)
We consider sustainability in all forms of outside involvement and helps, and commit to the responsible use of the resources and gifts with which we have been entrusted. (Luke 12:42-48)
