Program Director

Each of Berea’s staff members is responsible to live a life that is in alignment with Biblical principles and Jesus’ teachings. Staff are also responsible for interaction with guests in the same manner as a function of their job to achieve Berea’s Mission and help people take their Next Step with Jesus Christ. Therefore, every employee is responsible to uphold, embrace, and live out Berea’s Statement of Faith and Mission Statement. It is crucial that each employee, regardless of their role within the organization, seeks to become more Christ-like each day. True life change should occur as part of their work to help foster a Christ-centered environment.

Practically, this means that part of each employee’s job will be to engage in “religious duties “including but not limited to leading devotions, teaching from the Word of God, encouraging, and facilitating Next Steps with guests/campers, Leaders’ Meetings, leading others in prayer, and living a life of prayer.

All these skills are taught and guided by the Statement of Faith and the Mission Statement. These work in conjunction with Berea’s Flywheel, Hedgehog concept, Next Steps Philosophy, and Berea Values. Staff are evaluated annually on all of these and other Biblical standards.

Flywheel: Connecting – Engaging – Transforming

Hedgehog Concept: Helping everyone take their Next Step (with Jesus Christ).

Next Steps: Helping each person take one step on their own faith journey.

Berea Values: Bold Stewardship, Embodying Christ, Reimagining the Ordinary, Environment of Belonging, and All One Team.

Mission Statement: Berea’s mission is to create and continuously develop programs which appeal to children, teens, adults, and families such that they respond to the message of Jesus Christ and the live changing principles of God’s Word within the context of meaningful relationships and memorable experiences.
