The Fourth Man Foundation has always stood for a strong team of professionals as part of our domestic mission. The goal of Professional Development is to empower our staff with the skills they need to become committed well rounded members of society with a passion for service. As Christ is the foundation of FMF, so it is that each of our team members rests their laurels on that foundation to be more Christ like in our professional and personal life. All in all, we are a team with a shared passion to LOVE.
THE SIX CORE VALUES OF THE FOURTH MAN FOUNDATION:
We encourage you to bring your faith to work. We want our team to be true to our values. We put God first in all things.
The Savior patiently waits for us to choose to follow Him. The scriptures teach, “Behold, hath the Lord commanded any that they should not partake of his goodness? Behold I say unto you, Nay; but all men are privileged the one like unto the other, and none are forbidden” (2 Nephi 26:28). We can follow His example by exercising patience with others and ourselves in our efforts to improve.
Compassion literally means “to suffer together.” On an emotional course of action, the FMF is compassionate to the needs of orphans and those under severe spiritual, emotional, or mental bondage. It drives us to reach out to relieve the suffering of the needy.
Charity is Christ’s pure love, which He gives freely to us each day. He admonishes us to love God and love our fellowmen (see Mark 12:30–31). We can show love to others each day through small and simple acts of kindness. Each time we reach out to another in love, we reflect Christ’s love.
We value family. We support the wealth building family and also the families of our team. We believe in work-life balance. We desire to be successful at work and home.
The Savior was perfectly obedient in all things. He promises, “If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love” (John 15:10). Obedience is a choice to trust God more than we trust our own limited knowledge (see L. Tom Perry, “Obedience through Our Faithfulness,” Ensign or Liahona, May 2014, 100–103). We can strengthen our obedience one good choice at a time.
