Methodist Children’s Home (MCH) annually recognizes staff who exemplify our Core Values. Staff are nominated by their peers and recognized at an all-staff meeting.
The Core Values for MCH are:
Lyle Mason, director of benefactor relations, received the 2016 Core Award for Christian Principles at the all-staff meeting in March. The recipient for the Core Award for Christian Principles is someone who applies the principles of the Christian faith which serve as the foundation for this ministry.
According to Mason’s nomination, “Lyle desires first and foremost the seek God’s will, in his personal life and in his role as Director of Benefactor Relations. Lyle invites God’s Spirit to move, guide and direct our team. He desires to honor God in all that we do from speaking events in churches, one-on-one donor meetings, and how we interact with one another as a team. Lyle considers it a true gift from God to represent the children in the care of MCH and by example, encourages the rest of us to keep that very thing in mind. Lyle is a servant leader. In the very way he leads, he reminds and encourages our team that we engage in Kingdom work. Lyle recognizes gifts in us and provides opportunities for us to use those gifts in our work; he inspires us to be faithful followers of Christ in all that we do.”
“I truly consider it a joy and privilege to serve the Lord through my work at MCH,” said Mason.
Trey Oakley, vice president for development and Mason’s supervisor had this to share: “Lyle is a strong leader who models his faith when interacting with staff and benefactors. People are drawn to that kind of leader. His faith is more than catchy sayings; it guides him and our team.”
