At Sparrow, we believe in value:
The value of each human life
Jesus said in Matthew 10:31, “You are worth more than many sparrows,” as He described our Heavenly Father’s care for us.
Therefore we celebrate every life God has created, from the newest life conceived to the moms who carry them, all of those with whom we work, and even those who have not yet become convinced of how priceless a human life is.
The value of knowledge
Truth liberates. Or, as Jesus put it, “You will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.” The more you know, the more equipped and prepared you are.
Therefore we pursue our own growth and the growth of others.
The value of excellence
Our work testifies to the value of the One we ultimately serve. “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, and not for men.” Col. 3:23
Therefore we pursue standards of excellence in every area.
The value of stewardship
“As each one has received a special gift, employ it in serving one another as good stewards in the manifold grace of God.” I Peter 4:10 and “…the worker deserves his wages.” I Tim. 5:18b
Therefore we have established our pricing at or below industry standards. In order to make educational training more affordable, we have established packages so that the more training contracted, the greater the discount received. We also have individual and organizational scholarships available.
