What do you like about working at Vanguard?: Another synonym that could be interchangeably used for Vanguard could be “family.” There’s an intimate nature and connection found between the students, staff, and faculty. The culture of this family values each individual’s story and how that story integrates in God’s ultimate narrative. Vanguard particularizes every person that enters seeing them unique and vital to the body of Christ. Being a part of this family goes beyond just working; it dabbles in the divine design.
