“Healthy cultures never happen by accident. They are created.”
“The number one force that shapes your culture is your values.”
“What we value determines what we do.”

Culture is what makes you unique or different. In ministry or family, there are many models. Your values are what determine how you will do things.
When I speak to people interested in joining our team in Africa, I tell them our values. This is our DNA, making us different than other programs. They do not make us better, but define our uniqueness.
