And how do we look at those areas where there's continuous improvement and focus on those as a staff? But we've always really just been so committed to culture. Again, we're a ministry; we're not a foster-care agency that hires Christians. We're an extension of God's church that has been placed in this area. And so culture for us is very important." (07:41)
