Values Statements


Faith
Rooted in our heritage in the Nebraska Synod, Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, Nebraska Lutheran Outdoor Ministries (NLOM) is committed to uphold that heritage and to serve the interdenominational, interfaith and broader community. NLOM provides opportunities for the people to grow in faith. Our work expresses our faith in Christ, and our faith in Christ compels us to serve others.

Vocation
We help people and groups uncover, rediscover and grow in their authentic calling.

Community
We provide opportunities for people to be in safe, intentional community where they can grow through relationships.

Hospitality
We are committed to inclusiveness, acceptance and friendliness. We want guests to experience, "You matter to God, therefore you matter to us." Guests are enabled, through our hospitality, to accomplish their goals.

Partnership
We value being a part of the Body of Christ (1 Cor. 12) and delight in the opportunities to share ministry with other members of the Body. We also intentionally reach out to other denominations and secular groups.
