The YVSCE exists to use the arts to create effective discipleship communities that build leaders who prevail in every sphere of life.


The Syndicate Mission

To use the arts to create effective discipleship communities that build leaders who prevail in every sphere of their lives.


The Syndicate Vision

To be the dominant creators of Kingdom culture in every community.


 The Syndicate Values



Art as a Cultural Change Agent

Art has the ability to express truth and beauty.  We additionally value art as a powerful influence that can be used to build relationships and create moral culture.  The Syndicates use art, dance, music, theater, fashion and food to bring people together and help them experience a culture of honor.


Servant Leadership

We take our leadership example from Jesus, who, knowing his mission well, served and empowered those below him to succeed him, adding value and longevity to his mission. We take risks on new leaders, mentoring, equipping and empowering them towards success, giving them mission-critical responsibilities. We honor and develop our leaders.


True Relationships

We value a strong community of honor and respect as exercised in the Matthew 18 process. We challenge men that honoring a woman is worth fighting for. We encourage women to gain security and self-worth, which in turn empowers them to respect and honor men. We demonstrate unconditional love through humility and vulnerability while maintaining a high level of accountability and low level of judgment.


Continually Raising the Bar

Personal growth and pursuit of betterment are essential.  We don’t settle for mediocrity, but relentlessly raise the standard for excellence, creating innovators who look for possibilities at all times and push forward with optimism.  The future is fabricated with ideas yet realized.


A Bias toward Action

We are biased toward taking action rather than simply thinking and talking about change. We overcome status quo by encouraging, equipping and supporting individuals to think outside the box and step into action. We value learning through active experience and believe that great faith with motion will always produce results.
