    I have been working at Life.Church full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The mission of Life.Church has remained the same throughout the years and keeps the entire staff focused. However, the way we go about achieving that mission has changed with the times to foster innovation and risk-taking ideas.

    We also have a culture of development - both professional and personal. We all strive to improve and bring our best every day. This culture helps us to get out of the "that's how we always do it" mindset and encourages taking on challenges to stretch individuals to propel the organization forward.

    Plus, there are great benefits and perks such as health care, FSA, employer-match 401k, and many more.

    Cons

    It's a growing, learning organization, so if you're not comfortable with change, pivots, and fast-paced work environment it might not be a fit for you.

    I have been working at Life.Church full-time

    Pros

    Getting to be a part of life change with every contribution we make! We also have a great working environment with lots of fun, personal growth, spiritual growth as well as professional growth. There are so many opportunities to develop leadership, time management, communication, really any area I can think of in a work context I have opportunities to develop and grow in here. The team at Life.Church cares so much about you as a person, not just you as an employee, and they care about your family!

    Cons

    The pace can be fast sometimes, so if you don't love working hard and running fast then you might not enjoy it here.

    They care about you as a person, and want to make you a better leader and person. Plus the mission - leading people to be fully devoted followers of Christ! They have amazing benefits!

    Cons

    They have very high standards, and sometimes it's hard to meet them.

    Pros

    Fantastic benefits package, a best friend at work (or several), support for every area of your life, positive approach to personal development and an open feedback culture. You will always know what is expected of you for success and you will be challenged and supported as you grow in your leadership. Every day is better than the day before.

    Cons

    Demanding schedules because we are working hard to create opportunities to change lives. It's up to you to protect your family time and to seek out opportunities to rest - all of which is highly encouraged.

    One of the core values is that we are bet the farm risk takers, but many times it seems the opposite

    I can't think of anything at this time.

    I have been working at Life.Church full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I am so thankful to work at a place where me and my co-workers are always pushed to never settle for lest than our best. The resources and leaders we have a tools for self and spiritual development are endless. I feel valued and cared for majorly in this way.

    Cons

    Ministry can just be hard! When you are called to it you sign up for long hours, and it's not something that you can just "turn off." To work at Life.Church and in ministry, it has to be a calling, and you need to know that before you step into it.

    Pros

    Lots of development opportunities! It's a high feedback culture so there's not any gray areas on whether you're doing well or not. It's a great environment where your co-workers care about the same mission as you but also care about you as a person.

    Cons

    Work life balance can be hard with it being so fast paced but if you're passionate about the mission then that sacrifice is worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Would love to have paid paternity leave.

    I have been working at Life.Church full-time

    Pros

    I have worked a ton of places in my career as well as a handful of different churches. This is the best job and place I have ever worked. It is filled with great culture and you are surrounded my great leaders that care about you and your family.

    Leadership truly sees you as a person and not just a number. They strive to be better and feedback is both given and received in a healthy manner. The character of our leadership is such an example for others both outside and inside the church.

    The vision and mission is very clear and spoken about often. You know what to do and are equipped to do it every day. This creates a healthy environment to grow and be the best you.

    Cons

    Feedback can be hard if you are not aware or able to take feedback often. Again, it is said in love and is healthy but ultimately it is up to the individual to receive it.

    It is a fast paced organization. If you are not in a healthy place along with your family it can cause you to burn out and not have great work/personal life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you!!

    Pros

    Our mission is more than just words on a wall - we truly exist and focus solely on projects and goals that lead people to become fully devoted followers of Christ.

    Our culture is intentional, not accidental. We live and breathe by our aligning organizational values, which drive and guide our high-performing teams.

    Our staff is valued. We are a team full of leaders who have other leaders investing in us, our families, and our development. Additionally, our compensation and benefits are competitive, with year-end review salary increases based on performance. We also highly value our families, knowing they are our #1 ministries God calls us to.

    Our teams have fun. We really do enjoy what we do, while doing it with people we enjoy being around. As a high-performance organization, we make sure to let loose and have fun!

    Cons

    The pace is so fast that it's not the right fit for everyone. If you do not thrive in flexible, dynamic, and highly-driven staff teams, this would not be the right fit for you. To go the distance on this team, you must be well-centered in who you are.

    Advice to Management

    Thankful for you! Keep guarding and guiding what you've excellently created.
