“I watched a team that was working in isolation move toward contribution and team work in a short time period of time.”

-Steve Keels, Pastor at Good Shepherd Church

Joe Saweikis, the senior pastor of Mountain City Church in Frostburg, was a little skeptical when Dr. Randy Millwood, Baptist Convention of Maryland/Delaware’s (BC/MD) interim Church Services team leader, suggested that he complete a Core Values Index Assessment (CVI). Saweikis consented and discovered that not only was the assessment accurate, it also changed the way he now relates to his family and church. “The way I perceive things determines how I interact with people. So, it helped me see my false perceptions or tendencies to look at things a certain way,” he said.

Millwood explained that the CVI shows how our core values impact us in areas such as how we lead, learn, feel threatened, relate to others, deal with conflict, and contribute to the world, our family, jobs, and ministries. Millwood said that, after taking the assessment, he has personally monitored the reliability and found it surprisingly steady. “It’s short and simple, and the feedback has been good,” he said.

Saweikis’ results highlighted “banker” and “wisdom” traits. The need for information makes sense to him. “For example, if I don’t have enough information, I don’t feel worthy enough to interact in a conversation,” he reflected. Now, he said, he allows himself to join in and asks questions.

Also, Saweikis said he tends not to act or move forward without enough data, as opposed to others who can “go with their gut.” He reflected on a conversation with his son years ago. “He was a senior getting ready for the military,” Saweikis said. “He asked me, ‘Why does everything you do work out?’ I told him, ‘I don’t do things I don’t know how to do!’” Reflecting on that answer, Saweikis now realizes that isn’t the best way to think. “If you’re following God, you can’t do that. You have to go out on faith,” he shared.

Saweikis encourages others to consider the CVI but added, “It’s a tool, not our identity. Our identity is found in Christ and what He says about it.”
