|Creativity and innovation are defining characteristics of the ethos at Sandals Church. Because of this DNA, Sandals Church is often on the leading edge of creative expression in the Church. The new Senior Director of Creative Services must naturally resonate with Sandals Church’s commitment to producing great work in a culture that is less “copy and paste” and more “create and innovate.”
When it comes to filling a need in the organization, they never simply look for someone to do a job, but for the next person to join their team. They’re passionate about hiring people who want to work hard and can’t get enough of the vision to be “real with ourselves, God, and others.”
Sandal’s philosophy when it comes to hiring staff is, “We hire people, not positions.”
