We Are One Made of Many:
What It Means to Work at a Christian Institution
What does it mean to work at a Christian institution like Pepperdine? Specifically, how does our mission affect our work? The fact is, even when we understand and appreciate it, it can be hard to articulate how it affects our work - how we take our values and apply them in the work environment. Interpreting, articulating, applying - it is not easy for some of us.
The piece you are about to experience has been created to inspire, intrigue, and promote discussion among the people who make up the Pepperdine community. In many ways, Pepperdine's mission is only as strong as the people who embody it. These days, when I speak to how our mission plays out in the work place, I am quick to say, "It's the people. It's who they are. And what they do flows from who they are."
