Amor has a unique culture. Here are some important things that we identify with.
In all things we look to Jesus. We work because of him and we want our work to point to him.
The churches we serve are diverse and our staff reflects that diversity. You are guaranteed to find someone here who thinks differently than you about just about anything theological, political, or even where the best tacos are. Iron sharpens iron and, in the end, see #1.
We are learners, which means that we are open to being better in all things which means we need to be able to discover with our coworkers how we can be better. Even when we seek to be better, it doesn’t always feel good to hear how to be better, so we always refer back to #1.
Any Christian community worth its salt breaks bread together. It breaks down barriers and creates opportunities for deeper relationships. When we meet, more often than not, we eat together. Sometimes we even compete in our annual Chili Cookoff!
Ministry is fun. We serve a savior whose first miracle was turning water into wine at a party. We are at a nexus point of people’s lives being transformed. Ministry is also hard which is why we make sure we laugh a lot.
The words, “That’s not my responsibility,” don’t exist with us. We go the extra mile with our groups, our donors, our pastors, and our teammates which frequently takes us outside of an eight-to-five schedule.
We are structured like a business but we spend time listening to what God is saying to us as part of the body of Christ. When closeness and proximity to God is your top priority (see #1), there’s no more exciting place to be than to be listening.
