Walk & Talk Core Leadership Counseling Values
THE LIVING WORD
for Faith and Practice
The Word of God is the foundation, the “plumbline” for all of life and Christian ministry—personal and corporate.
Leaders facing problems often respond with habitually unhealthy attitudes and behaviors which are not supported by Scripture, leading to greater stress and/or sin; responses that reflect Christ's character and his Word are the remedy.
BEING AND DOING in Balance for Integrity
Effective leaders must have a rigorous, consistent personal devotional life for a healthy, fruitful ministry.
An excessive “performance orientation” in ministry is not an asset; rather, it is an obstacle to knowing Christ and making him known.
TRUST AND VULNERABILITY for Vital Relationships
Many leaders mask their problems and live in fear of being truly known; they avoid being vulnerable before God and man, therefore forfeiting the treasure of intimacy.
Pain is a part of personal growth; it requires authenticity and trust before God and others—for genuine freedom in Christ, and a ministry that multiplies.
