Leading The Way’s employees come from a broad range of church backgrounds. Nevertheless, employees are expected to be a member in good standing of a church whose doctrinal convictions and statement of faith are not in conflict with LTW’s. To make sure everyone understands our theological foundations, we require that all employees subscribe to LTW’s Statement of Faith, avoid public statements conflicting with the Statement of Faith, and seek to conduct themselves in a manner consistent with the beliefs set forth in the Statement of Faith.
LTW is both an equal-opportunity employer and a Christian, nonprofit, religious organization. We conduct hiring without regard to race, color, ancestry, national origin, age, sex, marital status, parental status, or disability of an otherwise-qualified individual. The status of LTW as an equal-opportunity employer does not prevent the organization from hiring staff based on their religious beliefs so that all staff share the same religious commitment, which is central to our stated religious purpose and day-to-day operations.
