A Redemptive Company
"In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace."
What is ARC? Like, welding? Or Noah’s big boat?
ARC simply stands for “A Redemptive Company”. What does this mean?
Pathfinder exists for more than its own survival and its own success. Pathfinder is the beginning of a worldwide movement of redemption.
Which begs the question:
What is redemption? Does that mean you hire a bunch of convicts?
Not exactly, let’s explain:
re-deem (verb): make up for the negative aspects of something
Every human being carries with them some kind of negative aspect from their lives. Most of us call that “baggage”. Maybe it’s a failed relationship. Or a plan that didn’t work out. They let someone down. Addiction. Someone they were counting on . . . didn’t come through. They trusted an authority figure that exploited them. They exploited others. Broken promises. An opportunity that never came to fruition. Abuse, neglect, defeat.
Enter Jesus Christ. A man who died to redeem all those things.
"In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace." Ephesians 1:7
But Pathfinder is not Jesus Christ. Pathfinder is a company made up of imperfect, fallen people in need of redemption themselves. However, we believe our ultimate mission is to redeem others by:
Cornerstone #1: We strive to call people UP not OUT
UP: We live and demonstrate a higher standard. We get in the trenches of life with people.
OUT: We berate, criticize, chastise, offer no solutions
When we find a situation that is not up to standard, we show, live, and encourage a better way
Up is a blessing. Out is a curse
Cornerstone #2: We move from survival to thrival*
*not a word, we know.
We get in the trenches with our team members on topics of:
Budgeting, managing, and saving money
Repairing credit & reduce debt
Making credit work for them
Securing loans at reasonable rates
Buying a house
Getting education and training
Ensuring a quality education for their children
Accessing quality health resources
Cornerstone #3: We move our focus from inward to outward
A person operating in thrive mode can move others into thrive mode.
Thrive mode compounds.
And a bunch of regular people change the world.
