Our Values

Our shared belief in Christ is what unifies our community, and it remains the cornerstone of our workplace culture. The qualities defined here describe the Taylor workplace at its best. It is our prayer that these values characterize our institution every day.

servant-leadership icon


We always seek to serve others generously (Matt. 20:26-28; Jn. 13:14), and provide countless opportunities for servant-leadership development for our students, which includes training, mentoring, and accountability from faculty and staff (Heb. 13:7; Prov. 27:17).

purpose icon


There is an intentionality behind everything we do (Prov. 21:5) as we seek to cultivate and amplify the God-given callings and purposes of everyone on campus (I Thess. 5:11). We are unwavering in our Christian commitments (I Cor. 15:58), and we inspire one another with our individual and institutional commitment to Christ (I Kings 8:61).

joyful icon


The joy we find in Christ shines through our daily work (Ps. 92:4). We live life to the full, believe in living abundantly (Jn. 10), and seek to adopt Christ’s focus in Hebrews 12:2, that “for the joy set before Him, He endured the suffering of the cross” (I Jn. 4:12; Eph. 4:2-3).

hospitality icon


We are a close-knit community, and our workplace resembles an extended family (I Thess. 2:8). Our warm friendliness and Christian hospitality draw people to this place (Rom. 12:13), but more than that, we draw others into the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and we aspire to be a place that shows the love of Christ to others.

excellence icon


At Taylor, we strive for excellence, seeking to honor God by giving nothing short of our best in all we do (Col. 3:23-24). Our pursuit of excellence is a means of stewarding God-given gifts, talents, and resources (Matt. 25:21; Ps. 115:1).
