Our Core Values
Being involved on ANY level makes you a leader here, and we consider leadership to be servanthood, not a title or a position, so we are looking for those who are passionate and truly love people and embody our core values. Our core values are an acronym we call FUSE: Fervency, Unity, Service, and Excellence.
We are passionate about winning, about relationships, and about life.
A life with no passion is no life at all. Whether you liked Steve Erwin "The Crocodile Hunter" or not, you cannot deny one simple fact: The man had passion. He once said," My belief is that what comes across on the television is a capture of my enthusiasm and my passion for wildlife."
As Dream Team members, we have enthusiasm and passion for life. To see a person so excited about life incites excitement in others. As Christ-followers we should burn with a desire to live the abundant life that Jesus promised in John 10:10 - "I came so they can have real and eternal life, more and better life than they ever dreamed of." A better life than we've ever dreamed? That is living with fervency.
No one person is above the team.
Vince Lombardi, one of the greatest football coaches in the history on the National Football League, one time described why his teams were so successful. "Teamwork is what the Green Bay Packers were all about. They didn't do it for individual glory. They did it because they loved one another."
As Dream Team members, we are committed to godly unity and teamwork. Psalm 133:1 says, "How good and pleasant it is when brothers live together in unity." In Acts chapter 2 we find that the Holy Spirit moved on God's people when they were in one accord. Like those Green Bay Packers, we love each other and desire to see God's team exalted above our individual accomplishments.
If people really matter, prove it!
Nothing says "you're a nobody" like poor service. God sent His Son to ransom us so He could make us a somebody. Don't people deserve the same from us? We have the ultimate example of a servant-leader in Jesus. In Mark 10:45 Jesus said, "For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many."
As Dream Team members, we are committed to proving how much we care for people with our actions first, then words if necessary. When Jesus came face to face with Blind Bartimaeus he asked him a question that every leader should know by heart. He said, "What do you want me to do for you?" This question should be our deepest motivation to accommodate people, because people matter.
Just good enough is not good enough.
Steve Jobs, the CEO of Apple, the worlds most valuable technology company, says it like this: "Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren't used to an environment where excellence is expected." To be the standard of excellence that others measure themselves by is a far cry from simply doing what is asked of you. We live in a world where people have a "it's not my problem" mentality.
As Dream Team members, we believe in Colossians 3:23 that says: "Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men." If unbelievers can be motivated enough to set the standards for excellence, worldwide, what then should we as believers strive for? We are told to work as unto God. Excellence is an attitude that turns into a habit that produces extraordinary results.
