The Lutheran Hour Ministries Foundation adopts this Code of Ethics to guide the conduct of the Board of Trustees, employees and volunteer leaders.
In our various capacities as volunteers, employees or elected leaders, we work together to serve our Lord in an effort to Bring Christ to the Nations and the Nations to the Church.
These roles demand a high standard of integrity, trust and stewardship. The Board of Trustees, employees and volunteer leaders will strive to be aware of the consequences of their actions.
Our service must reflect compliance with the law and the highest standards of professional knowledge, conduct, care and respect for each individual served.
There will be times when the choice of conduct is not clear. When faced by an unclear choice, ask yourself this question: "If my actions were to be published, would foundation supporters agree that the best interests of all were served?" If the choice is still not clear, ask for guidance from your supervisor, other foundation officers or pastoral advisors.
Responsibilities shall be conducted in a manner consistent with Scriptures and the Lutheran Confessions.
