Mission, Vision & Core Values

Mission Statement

“The families of Kings River Packing seek to honor God by impacting the lives of our employees, customers, and community.”

We believe that God owns this business and we are simply His stewards of it for a season. We want to make sure that all we do in and through the business honors Him. By the same token, we do not want to do anything that will dishonor Him.

Vision Statement

“Helping move people.”

We want to take employees, customers, and those in the community and “help move” them from their current position (or circumstances) to a better place. Regardless of where they are in life (financially, professionally, emotionally, etc.), we want to help move them to an improved situation. Regardless of how they interact with us, we want them to be better off having done so.

Core Values

Spiritual Growth –

“We provide the opportunity for all to know God and make Him known.”

No one who works in our company is required to believe what we believe. However, we make it clear early on that God is the owner of our company. Therefore, all that we do centers around Him. This includes many efforts to sow seeds of faith all around through various efforts. We will not force anyone to believe, but they will certainly have opportunities to hear.

Integrity –

“We do what is right even when no one is watching.”

Without integrity we will not have the impact we desire. We take this very seriously. We will extend grace when it comes to mistakes and error, giving people a chance to grow and improve in their jobs. We are not as tolerant of violations concerning integrity and the way we treat people we are working with.

Employee Development –

“We strive to create an atmosphere that inspires and enables people to reach their full potential.”

As a company, we want to meet our employees where they are as they strive for excellence. Our goal is to provide the resources and inspiration required to “help move” them forward on their path. Sometimes this means they advance within our company and sometimes it means they move on to other opportunities. Either way, we want to help!

"This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent us his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins."

1 John 4:10 (NIV)
