God’s Values-Based Strategic Intent

Leaders must be able to keep their lives aligned with their biblical core values. This alignment is critical since out of value alignment can spring a strategic intent – a commitment to reach beyond what leaders see as within their means and capacities. Because of the strategic intent of regency-leaders, the congregation will commit themselves to whatever direction Christ leads them.

Values-based strategic intent began within the hearts and minds of the new believers in the first-century church when they embraced God’s values. In that Pentecost moment, God’s Spirit intervened into the hearts, minds, and values of His people. In that Pentecost moment, God birthed His church with God’s value-based strategic intent.

Paul’s first letter to Timothy provides a list of the core values God intends for His regency-leaders to hold:

Given the world’s onslaught of competing values, regency-leaders selflessly anchored to God’s values provide stability for the church to be a light to the dominant culture.
