We are called by Christ to Lead!
At Echoing Hills, we believe that the Nine Fruits of the Spirit are important spiritually as well as being principles for life and leadership. Leading and guiding the organization by the Fruit of the Spirit allows Echoing Hills to build trust, and create an environment in which to thrive for the team, individuals served and their families.
The Fruit of Love
Love is the cornerstone of servant leadership. It considers the needs of the follower, focuses on the person, and leads in serving the best interest of others. At Echoing Hills, it’s doing the right things, understanding and focusing on the needs and talents of the team, and encouraging their hearts.
The Fruit of Joy
The joy of the Lord is our strength and comes from a relationship with Him first and foremost. Leading from a place of joy exuberates inner confidence even in the midst of difficulty or challenge.
The Fruit of Peace
Peace is an inner quality that includes quiet confidence, courage, and composure and can bring progress during pressures. While joy brings an inner strength during storms, peace allows the organization to move forward with positive momentum.
The Fruit of Patience
Patience is the work of the Spirit of God, and so very significant at Echoing Hills. Patience allows us to not act impulsively, and to remember to refrain from a knee-jerk reaction. Even when we or others make mistakes, we can address the situation with love and patience.
The Fruit of Kindness
Kindness embodies graciousness. It is shown through being present to listen and understand every situation at Echoing Hills. Being empathic and showing appreciation for the team is critical to developing a level of trust in the relationship.
The Fruit of Gentleness
Gentleness is being kind, tender, or mild-mannered and is so very important at Echoing Hills. Team members need to show humility, restraint, and compassionate behavior towards one another to foster a positive environment.
