HOPE resource library
HOPE has chosen a staff development strategy, with the guidance of Malcolm Webber of LeaderSource, which uses two simple frameworks: the 5C’s (Christ, community, character, calling, and competency) and RISE (relational, instructional, spiritual, and experiential). As ambassadors of Christ, we believe that, regardless of specific roles—whether manager, intern, or executive team member—staff should be living in the fullness Christ promised. The following resources explain HOPE’s holistic staff development model.
