Our desire is to accept people just as they are, as long as they are willing to whole-heartedly join in our mission.  Rather than craft a complicated and wordy mission statement, we summarize our mission into the following three words:  BUILD. SERVE. IMPACT.

 

Build

We are builders. That’s what we do. God has given us a passion to gather resources, add some vision and organization, sprinkle in diligence and hard work, and create something that didn’t exist before. We are explorers - at times even pioneers as we often venture into uncharted territory. Creating something new requires faith and courage, and we believe that God has blessed us with both. We commit to striving for excellence in whatever we put our hands to. This is exhibited in the homes and communities we build, as we endeavor to deliver uncompromising style to families at prices that promote healthy homeownership.

 

Serve

Throughout the process of building, we cross paths with many people in the marketplace. From trade partners, to home buyers, and vendors and suppliers, we have been granted opportunities to touch thousands of lives! Our intent is to never take this for granted, but to be faithful stewards of every opportunity. Our aim is for all we come into contact with to have a positive and fulfilling experience. At Betenbough Homes, we commit to treat others as we would want to be treated, attempting to put their needs and interests ahead of our own. We pray that others will feel blessed because of their relationship with our company.

 

Impact

We desire to make a difference in this world where the needs of humanity are more vast and visible than ever before. It is common for those of this generation to long to be a part of something bigger than themselves. To find a life of purpose, we cannot overlook how we spend our days in the marketplace. A life where purpose is only lived out in the margins will logically be only marginally purposeful. Betenbough Homes is a collection of individuals who have united around a belief that we can spend our days in the marketplace with passion and purpose, having a significant and lasting impact in the world.

Core Values

There is something that is woven throughout any organization that is somewhat abstract, typically unspoken, but often very observable. While not easy to capture or describe, it is so powerful as to guide most decisions and actions within an organization. This force is referred to as culture.

We strive to intentionally shape and maintain a healthy culture in which our mission can be most successfully executed. Having a certain set of spiritual beliefs neither qualifies nor disqualifies one as a cultural fit. As long as someone will commit to our core values, they are welcome to join us in our mission. While there are many subtle, perhaps team specific characteristics involved, we consider the following four values to be foundational to our success:

We strive to intentionally shape and maintain a healthy culture in which our mission can be most successfully executed. Having a certain set of spiritual beliefs neither qualifies nor disqualifies one as a cultural fit. As long as someone will commit to our core values, they are welcome to join us in our mission. While there are many subtle, perhaps team specific characteristics involved, we consider the following four values to be foundational to our success:

 

Unity

We relentlessly pursue the existence of a unified and healthy team. If words or actions can’t be characterized as unifying, then we consider them divisive, which are not welcome here. Unity requires humility, which is demonstrated by a gentleness and graciousness in our dealings with others as we exhibit patience and understanding. Unity does not imply uniformity, but involves embracing diversity through a common purpose.

 

Excellence

While this is a buzz word that is a bit overused in the marketplace, it is unfortunately rare to run across an organization that truly is excellent. Excellence is not to be confused with perfection, but refers to doing the best we can with the gifts and abilities God gives us. Exercising minimal effort will lead to a mediocre performance at best, but really going above and beyond the call of duty takes a conscious effort.

 

Generosity

We believe that we are blessed to be a blessing. Resources have been entrusted to us not only for our good but for the good of others. We are not entitled to what we have been given, so we will be grateful in our receiving as well as our sharing, seeking how to best steward these resources for the greatest good for the most people. We seek to have charitable hearts, free from pettiness in character and mind. We will intentionally look for ways to share our time, talents and treasures with others.

 

Growth

Life is a journey. We will embrace this fact, learn from our experiences, and commit to seeking progress and maturity. As circumstances change, we will commit to constant improvement by innovating new ideas and methods, and by enhancing all things currently established. This requires flexibility and a willingness to adapt. As we are faithful with what has been entrusted to us, we desire to be given greater territory.

 

As humans, we each consistently fall short in these areas, so we extend much grace to one another. However, each team member is expected to be fully engaged as we intentionally strive toward these core values. Success does not necessarily mean the absence of mistakes, but it does mean the presence of consistent faith and commitment.
