Episode 001 show notes
During the episode, Brig Gen David Warner, USAF (Ret.), referenced a number of things, from personal stories to books to the inner workings of OCF. Following are a few of the items mentioned in the podcast that we think you’ll find helpful:
The OCF Vision:
The military community positively impacted through Christ-like leaders
The OCF Mission:
OCF engages military leaders in Biblical fellowship and growth to equip them for Christ-like service at the intersection of faith, family, and profession.
The Strategic Framework:
What’s the role OCF has and continues to play in developing and inspiring future leaders? In fall 2016, the OCF Council approved our 2017-2021 Strategic Framework. At the heart of the four “Lines of Effort” outlined in the framework is leadership.
- Member Engagement and Growth—encouraging and equipping Christian military leaders to create community, where our members employ biblical leadership to impact military society.
- Growing Christian Military Leaders—provide tiered leader development, from a Christ-centered perspective producing leaders of biblical character who integrate faith and profession to model true servant leadership.
- Ministry Delivery—adopt flexible, repeatable, and sustainable methods for teaching, training, and equipping military leaders to glorify God through their personal lives, professional excellence, and military leadership.
- Stewardship—leveraging our people, finances, and our facilities to effectively reach and minister to Christian military leaders, families, and fellowships.
