- Administering legacy efforts for future solvency. We are charged to shepherd legacy efforts of the ECC through a myriad of cultural changes, administration transitions, and dynamic economic conditions to achieve their long-term intent.
- Innovation in opportunity and stabilization in distress. We work effectively and efficiently throughout the organizational continuum. We incubate new initiatives, cultivating them to self-sustaining health and, when necessary, work with distressed efforts and entities to stabilize them.
- Managing and mitigating inherently high-risk entities. We successfully manage assets for optimal impact through long-term investment and the mitigation of exposure and unnecessary risk, including negotiating potentially litigious landscapes.
- Operating within industries of high governmental regulation and oversight. We work in industries and sectors that serve vulnerable demographics via a blend of public and private funding where there is significant government regulation and oversight.
- Biblical compassion, mercy and justice. We care deeply, and empathy always manifests itself in compassionate and merciful action. The Biblical mandate to love neighbor as self informs our conduct and decision making in all matters and relationships.
- Integrity. We are honest and respectful as a biblically based and professional organization, and gracious in all aspects to those we serve.
- Fidelity. We are devoted and faithful to those we serve, expressing our desire to serve them by cultivating long-lasting and healthy relationships.
- Generosity. We recognize the absolute reliance on an abundantly generous God and reflect the same spirit of generosity with gifts of time and resources to advance God’s compassionate work in our world.
- Accountability. We will practice biblical stewardship, set reasonable goals and take ownership for financial stability, relationships, results and outcomes. We will regularly evaluate current practices and policies to ensure responsive adaptation to changing contexts and constituent needs.
