Joni Message

Joni Eareckson Tada, Founder & CEO

By surveying their culture regularly for the past 16 years, Joni and Friends has continued to build and sustain a flourishing organizational culture. A big reason for this is the organization’s humble founder.  


“At Joni and Friends, we strive to create a strong culture built around our core values: honor God in everything we do, build relationships based on trust and respect, maintain integrity and excellence in programs and services, and practice responsible stewardship. If our culture is strong, then the spiritual and emotional health will be strong as well.? 


“I constantly examine my heart, mindful that God has placed into my hands this amazing ministry to the world’s one billion people with disabilities; It is a calling and a responsibility which I dare not jeopardize, minimize or risk losing.”
