Finance & Career Ministry

LIVE IN FREEDOM: WORK WITH PURPOSE

Mission:

We provide finance & career educational opportunities allowing individuals to discover stewardship principals & become champions of financial health.

The Finance & Career Building Ministry was birthed by the Care Team through meeting the needs of our congregants. The Care Team identified 2 consistent areas where there was a need for support & guidance – Financial Guidance and Job Seeking.

We offer Financial Guidance through intentional and proactive educational, counseling, and coaching to develop an action plan for establishing long-term, self-sustaining, financial freedom, stability and strength. The priority is to walk with our congregants through their present circumstances and help them take their next steps toward financial health.

The Celebration Career Center is a valuable tool in connecting local employers to qualified, skilled employees. Job-seekers receive exclusive access to an online database where they can search and apply for job openings, post their resume, receive career tips, and find workshops for resume writing, interview skills, and other trainings to sharpen their job skills. Employers can also post job openings to the Career Center. We also offer Career Workshops which exist to sharpen job skills in a fun, friendly, supportive atmosphere. The objectives for each workshop are to acquire job skills, gain knowledge, receive practical application, and for networking.

LEADERSHIP WEBINAR – 21 INDISPENSABLE QUALITIES OF A LEADER by John Maxwell
September 9th – October 14th 7:00PM – 8:30PM

John Maxwell says, “Part of any leader’s development comes from learning the laws of leadership, for those are the tools that teach how leadership works. But leaders are effective because of who they are on the inside. To go to the highest level of leadership, you must develop these character qualities from the inside out.”
 If you can become the leader you ought to be on the inside, you will be able to become the leader you want to be on the outside.
