These are Mount Hermon’s core values that drive “the how” behind the calling of Lives Transformed. Beyond creating a filter and a standard for what happens here, they reflect the heart and desire of what we have been called to do.

Relational
We engage in purposeful, deep, and enduring relationships as an intentional, Christ-like community.

Authentic
We align our faith, passion, attitude, and conduct, drawing closer to Jesus in humility and transparency

Excellent

We work individually and collectively to achieve the highest quality for the best Kingdom outcomes.

Grace-filled

We share a redemptive, restorative, and abundant love that is kind and patient in application.

The following series of stories capture these core values and are examples of how impact at Mount Hermon isn’t just limited to sessions with a speaker, but rather an all-encompassing experience where people are met right where they are on their journey.

The Authentic and Relational core values stand out in the story about Lorents, 61-year-old college teacher raised in another religion, intrigued by conversations regarding “answered prayer.”

In Adam’s story, the core values of Grace-filled and Relational drive the astounding outcome of an adventure staffer who at a young age had to stare death in the face.

Natalie’s story about how participating in the Echo program dramatically redirected her life shows our Relational value at work through the effectiveness of Excellent programs.

Mount Hermon’s core values extend beyond just those who work here! You’ll read about two Associates who grabbed on to the Relational and Authentic values so much that they invested in the lives of someone just down the street from Mount Hermon.

And last but not least, is a story about the incredible impact a devotional book is having in the lives of students. This story captures the Excellence value of the youth programs thinking beyond a student’s week or weekend at camp and Authentic as we hope and pray that students, while they are here and when they return home, will take steps in making their faith their own.

As you read these stories, we are curious to know how your encounters with God at Mount Hermon have impacted and transformed your life. We would love to hear about it!
