Absolute life-changer. Best experience of my life.
The ideals of the organization were very very good and christian service oriented, the organization was highly structured and well planned but the leadership lacked "compassion". The way that they interacted with the staff was heavy handed and authoritarian at times. They did however, make a great effort to listen to feedback. They valued performance over motive which I could not reconcile with my own spiritual beliefs. They demanded a great deal from the staff. We worked 17 hour days for ten day stretches. In that time we often drove long distances. During the summer that I was there (2000)- there was a major car accident. The leadership did not seem to realize that it was due to exhaustion of the staff. I hope that things have changed since then.
