Qualifications

LCC Staff Core Values

1). Lead a spiritually surrendered life.

Bring the gift of a self that is fully yielded to the Holy Spirit. Approach your work and your life with a Spirit-controlled heart.

 

Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God--this is your true and proper worship. – Romans 12:1 NIV


2). Maintain an infectious, optimistic, and enthusiastic attitude.

Ask people with whom you work, “What can I do to help you?” Expect to be a team player who has the best interests of the team at heart.

 

Then the officers shall add, “Is anyone afraid or fainthearted? Let him go home so that his fellow soldiers will not become disheartened too.” - Deuteronomy 20:8 NIV                         

Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing. - 

1 Thessalonians 5:11 NIV


3). Engage co-workers in honest communication.

Let’s not allow things to go underground. Conflict resolution and meaningful communication must take place in an environment of openness, truth telling, and sensitivity.

Therefore, each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to your neighbor, for we are all members of one body. – Ephesians 4:25 NIV


4). Approach your work with intensity.

Maintain a fervent and dedicated spirit that perseveres in the midst of difficulty.

Put your hand to the plow and don’t look back! Do all you can heartily and serve the Lord with fortitude.

 

Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people. Remember that the Lord will give you an inheritance as your reward, and that the Master you are serving is Christ. – Colossians 3:23-24 NLT


5). Honor and value volunteers.

Motivate and encourage the lay people and support staff around you by giving them words of encouragement and appreciation whenever you have an opportunity. Write the note, make the call, give the gift that says, “You and your ministry matter to God.”

Show proper respect to everyone, love the family of believers, fear God, honor the emperor.

I Peter 2:17 NIV


6). Keep one eye on eternity.

Don’t lose the big picture and God’s ultimate desire and plan for your life and ministry. Remember why you’re in this.

Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain. I Corinthians 15:58 NIV


7). Get on your knees.

Pray for God’s supernatural intervention in the life of this church, your family, your ministry and your personal walk with Jesus. Humble yourself before God and expect him to do great things as you seek to serve him with all your might.

Be cheerful no matter what; pray all the time; thank God no matter what happens. This is the way God wants you who belong to Christ Jesus to live. – 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 The Message

 

Give all your worries and care to God, for he cares about you. – 1 Peter 5:7 NLT

About Lighthouse Christian Church Church

Non-denominational 251-500 people

Lighthouse Christian Church was planted in 2001 by Faith Bible Church in Seattle, WA, with a desire to reach people for Jesus on the Eastside (Bellevue, Washington area). With an average attendance of about 400-500 (including children) on an average Sunday (pre-Covid), Lighthouse is a diverse community of people of all ages.


We understand that many people today long for a deeper experience of the spiritual dimension of life for themselves and for their families. We're growing closer to God and becoming a community in which God's grace and truth inform and enrich all of life through vibrant worship, practical biblical teaching and caring relationships.


Our mission is, "To share God's grace and truth so that people come to know, love and serve Jesus Christ." Our vision is, "We want God to be seen, we want people to feel loved, and we want lives to be changed into the likeness of Jesus." We're a come-as-you-are kind of church where God's love, acceptance and forgiveness can be found. Together we're discovering that those who follow Jesus need no longer walk in darkness, for they have the light of life. (John 8:12)
