Our Core Values

TRIAD’s core values reflect the passions of our people and what drives us to make disciples and plant churches in the world’s most challenging environments.

Be Dependent

Jesus Christ is our all in all. In Him we are complete. Ministry is not an end in itself, but the overflow of our personal relationship with Christ. (Psalm 121:1-2; John 15:5)

Reach the Unreached

God desires to be known and glorified in every tongue, tribe, people, and nation. How will they know unless followers of Christ respond and go to where the unreached remain? Reaching the neglected frontiers, the isolated, and the lost is a priority, not a project. (Psalm 67; Revelation 7:9-10; Romans 10:14-15)

Both Hands of the Gospel

We believe in a two-handed approach that is a balance of the Great Commandment (love God and people) and the Great Commission (make disciples of all nations). Glorifying the King compels disciples to respond to the urgent physical and spiritual needs of the unreached. If we neglect the Great Commandment, we hinder the Great Commission. (Matthew 28:19-20; Mark 12:28-31; James 2:14-17)

Multiplication

Disciples make disciples. We value the practice of making disciples and church planting as essential to our mission. We partner with emerging national leaders who are gripped with a passion to establish New Testament churches aimed at the remaining unreached people groups – until all peoples are reached. (Mark 4:20; Romans 15:18-21)

Be International and Interdenominational

We are a diverse, multi-cultural team of Christ-followers pursuing the work of God through the Gospel of Jesus Christ, making His name famous to the ends of the earth. To achieve this cosmic goal, we believe in partnering with sending churches, Christians, and mission agencies throughout the globe. Fulfilling the Great Commission is only possible through the global body of Christ working together in unity. (Ecclesiastes 4:9; John 17:20-23; Philippians 1:27)

Holiness and Humility in Passionate Servant Leadership

Because lost people matter to God, they matter to us. We go to serve, not to be served. We understand that each person bears the image of God. We will be known for holiness and humility. We are faithful servants who love Jesus deeply and encourage each other to attain his or her full potential in Christ. (Galatians 5:13-14; John 13:12-17)

Faithful Stewards with Integrity

We have a responsibility to be faithful stewards and to maintain integrity and openness. Therefore, we are committed to pursuing sound, biblical standards and truthful, accurate, timely, and appropriate communication. (Titus 2:7; 1 Corinthians 4:2)

Be Innovative

Engaging the world’s remaining unreached peoples requires creativity and a sensitivity to the unique calling, vision, and needs of each missionary. We believe in leveraging technology, pioneering new ministries and methods, and adapting in order to be relevant to every generation, people group, and sphere of society. (Colossians 3:17; 23-24; Ephesians 2:10)

Radical Christian Sacrifice

We believe in a life and ministry of radical risk and sacrificial love, all for the glory of Christ. The confidence of a heavenly reward makes us joyful in earthly loss. (Hebrews 10:32-35; Luke 14:26-27)

Joy in the Certainty of Suffering

Followers of Jesus will suffer. Suffering is not just a result of missions, but a means of missions. Our suffering is an extension of Christ’s suffering, so that people do not just hear about the sacrifice of love, but witness it. When suffering transpires, which is inevitable as followers of Christ, we share abundantly in comfort through Christ. (Romans 5:3-4; Colossians 1:24-25)

Blessed to be a Blessing

Through faith in Jesus, we become part of the people of God. The blessings God gives us are intended to be shared with all, beginning with the inestimable blessing of salvation from sin. Everything we have received from God is ultimately to be used for the benefit of other people, especially those who do not yet know Him. We have been saved to be sent. (Genesis 12:1-3; Isaiah 42:6-7)
