What makes the JP Experience unique is our passion for and adherence to our eight core values. We emphasize the importance of establishing relationships and forming community among our students, adults, staff and the clients that we serve. We believe that spiritual growth and connection happen at a deep, personal level when students experience program and worship in a small group setting. We believe our staff should know each student by name by the end of the week, and thus we maintain a smaller camp size each week.
We are passionate about sharing the truth that God has a plan for students’ lives and wants to use them right here, right now, to advance the Kingdom. Their worth is found in God and His plan for their lives. We value and provide opportunities for students and staff to develop in leadership; to use their unique gifts as servant leaders to further the ministry of the Jeremiah Project and the Kingdom of God. Our staff are trained to empower, engage and know your students.
At JP, we believe in innovation and we will always push the envelope with new ideas and methods that will serve to strengthen the ministry and impact the Kingdom in greater ways. We believe that God desires excellence from us and that nothing but our best is good enough. Integrity and intentionality are vital in everything that we do. We also create space to laugh and have fun together. We understand that we serve a God of love and hope and that laughter and relationships are vital to creating a safe space for students to grow in faith.
Ultimately, at the heart of all we do it is our belief that Jesus is everyone’s need. We enthusiastically share the Good News of Jesus Christ with our students and those that we serve. We model and encourage students to establish healthy spiritual practices and to find or deepen their faith in God.
With the guidance of the Holy Spirit, we adhere to the following eight core values in all of our ministries:
