Guiding Values

  • Grace. The Journey True North leadership team believes grace is the love and mercy given to us by God. Because He desires us to have it, not because of anything we have done to earn it. We show grace to others as Christ has extended grace to us. We believe that when someone causes pain to us, it is exceedingly difficult to forgive and be gracious. However, if we do not extend grace, we hurt ourselves even more (Hebrews 4:16).

 

  • Caring. The Journey True North leadership team believes displaying genuine care and concern for clients brings healing from traumatic experiences (3 John 1:2). Caring contributes to more positive patient outcomes and can improve the mental quality of life for people with mental illnesses. The personalization of care also helps individuals overcome the natural fears and anxieties that come with receiving counseling.

 

  • Kindness. The Journey True North leadership team believes kindness is demonstrated through selfless service and compassionate care for each client. Love your neighbor; show kindness to everyone (Ephesians 4:32).

 

  • Respect. The Journey True North leadership team believes respect is about allowing others the freedom to be themselves and to love others as they are (Matthew 11:28). The Journey True North leadership team fosters a culture in which everyone is encouraged to speak openly and honestly with one another and listen to each other.

 

  • Flexibility. The Journey True North leadership team believes in being open to the plans and ideas of others, and willing to be instructed and challenged to change for the better. Individuals must be willing to bend; if not, relationships will break down. This character trait helps one see the big picture, how people and events are all interlinked with a sovereign God at the controls. In this way, we can see that our plans and ways are not autonomous; we can trust God and make the most of opportunities and relationships. Therefore, we will be able to make changes in our plans and ideas to accommodate others, and fit the situation centered upon Scriptural precepts (Hebrews 12:14).

 

  • Partnership. The Journey True North leadership team believes in partnering with churches, organizations, and individuals in the rewarding work of helping others on their journey toward wholeness in Christ (Ecclesiastes 4:12).

As Journey True North Biblical Navigators apply and model these guiding values, influence with clients will be gained and receptivity to the message of hope and healing in Christ will increase.
