Our Workplace Culture

Reasons to Believe is an international, outreach-oriented, science apologetics ministry. We exist to inspire confident faith in the personal, transcendent God revealed in both Scripture and nature. We are seeking talented, innovative, mission-minded individuals who desire to use their God-given strengths in a challenging, collaborative, creative, fun, and thriving work environment. Join the RTB team and be part of a tightly knit community where work is life-giving, where staff members are valued for their unique contributions, where creativity and out-of-the-box thinking are encouraged, and where staff development and growth are a key to success.

 

We look for people with STAR qualities:

  • SPEAK TRUTH WITH GENTLENESS AND RESPECT At RTB, we understand that people observe attitude and demeanor as much as they listen to words; thus, we live out 1 Peter 3:15–16 both inside and outside the workplace. Whether we are helping someone come closer to the cross or discussing ideas with a teammate, we maintain an approachable manner, speaking truth with kindness, listening attentively, and treating others fairly and respectfully.
  • THINK BEYOND At RTB, thinking beyond means we think beyond the status quo and embrace change with a willingness to risk failure. We are bold but not reckless. We take initiative to find solutions and focus on possibilities more than on problems. We use our gifts wisely to discover more efficient avenues to advance RTB’s mission and inspire others to do the same (Romans 12:4–5). We hold a posture of innovation, curiosity, and flexibility, and we create space to explore diverse thoughts and creative options. We encourage all staff to cultivate a love of learning and to view personal growth and development as keys to success.
  • ADVANCE TOGETHER At RTB, we believe the best about, want the best for, and expect the best from each other. We foster an environment of teamwork and cultivate meaningful relationships within the bounds of professionalism. This means we exemplify maturity, self-awareness, and emotional intelligence (showing humility, empathy, and resilience) in our interactions (1 Peter 4:10–11). In discussions and decision-making, we value the collaborative process and challenge ideas respectfully. Once a decision is made, we unite and commit to effective implementation. We celebrate together, pray for one another, applaud each other’s achievements, and encourage unity through sharing information and expertise (Hebrews 10:24).
  • RADIATE INTEGRITY At RTB, we produce exemplary work not to please others but to honor the Lord (Colossians 3:23). We prize ethical virtue and make personal integrity a priority in everything we do (1 Peter 2:9). Whether it’s the integrity of our words, work, or spiritual walk, we all hold each other accountable and believe in a balance of grace and truth that builds trust and promotes productivity. We offer honest, specific feedback, not just when convenient, and we resolve disagreements in a timely, constructive manner (Matthew 18:15). We avoid gossip, act as advocates of reconciliation whenever we witness conversations that are not edifying, and rely on the Holy Spirit to help us radiate Christlike character in all our interactions.

TESTIMONIES

“People are often curious about where I work. Sometimes it’s because they see a picture of a group of my coworkers sporting genuine smiles and plates full of delicious food. Sometimes it’s because they wonder what sort of employer would allow their employees to have pink hair. Sometimes it’s because they find an RTB video, podcast, or article shared on social media and wonder how such thoughtful, intelligent content can come from joyful, relatable, sometimes goofy people. From the asker’s experience, coworkers can’t genuinely like each other, people with brightly colored hair can’t be taken seriously, and the cerebral are stodgy and dull. But the truth is RTB is a place that cherishes its staff like family, values expression and creativity, and drives science-faith conversations, always with gentleness and respect. Yes, it’s possible to work hard and love what you do. We get to do Kingdom work in a fun and fulfilling environment. What more can you ask for? Doughnuts? We’ve got those too!”
Sandra Dimas
Editorial Director
“There are lots of places to work or even to have a decent career. If you find a Christian organization that shares your values, the satisfaction level goes higher still. Reasons to Believe exceeds even that. RTB fosters an environment where your skills are realized, your mind is engaged, your coworkers will become dear friends, and your work will be extremely satisfying as you quickly discover how God uses your talents to accomplish his purposes in this world. Join the RTB team and find out why the turnover is so low!”
Joe Aguirre
Senior Editor
"Before I was an employee, I was very impressed with the passionate work Reasons to Believe (RTB) did. After being hired, I soon realized that RTB puts that same passion into its employees. RTB constantly strives to be a Christ-centered workplace by feeding into employees professional and spiritual growth. Whether it’s through attending events, reading RTB books, or dialoguing with the scholars, I often find myself learning more and coming closer to God through the work done here."
Bryan Rohrenbacher
Outreach Director
“Since joining the Reasons to Believe team, I have grown in so many ways. This is because RTB fosters an environment of learning and growing in your career and spiritual journey. Whether we are praying together or celebrating milestones, the culture here speaks to the relationships we have with each other. Everyone here is treated like family and work/life balance is valued. From the top leadership down, meaningful relationships have formed, and we all have the one purpose in mind, serving Christ with our talents.”
Shawna Frey
Human Resources Manager
“RTB prizes ethical virtue and moral conduct among its employees. Working in an environment that encourages its workers to pursue moral virtue is both challenging and rewarding. While I am far from a perfect person, I appreciate RTB inspiring me to make personal integrity a part of everything I do. RTB asks all its employees to work together as a team. Thus, deference, cooperation, and sacrifice are viewed as critical skills and qualities. I appreciate this team-oriented work environment because its importance carries over into other areas of life. And RTB encourages and gives its employees opportunities to grow as individuals and to develop their careers. This emphasis upon growth has allowed RTB to maintain many of its employees over the long term.”
Kenneth Samples
Senior Research Scholar
“The employees here at RTB not only work diligently toward the mission of RTB, but also live it in their daily lives. Our distinctive core values are evident in what we say, how we say it, and how we live it. Run into an RTB employee off hours and you’ll see the culture and character of RTB evident in their lives. Our mission is to spread the Christian gospel, and that is being done both corporately as well as personally.”
