These beliefs are not just demonstrated externally, they are embraced internally as well. They are part of the St. Matthew’s House DNA,” continued Ellison.
“St. Matthew’s House ranks in the top 10% out of 30 other rescue mission organizations who’ve been surveyed by BCWI. Our scores reflect a healthy and flourishing culture with significant strengths in overall staff engagement, inspirational leadership, life-giving work, and sustainable strategy. We will continue to stay true to our mission and core values along with providing servant leadership in every facet of the workplace.” stated Kiley Tyler, Director of Human Resources.

To receive such positive feedback . . . causes us to believe God is pleased with how things are done at St. Matthew’s House. You are witnesses to the world for Christ not only in ministry but also in how you serve and treat each other in a Christ-like manner.”
