CLASSES / EDUCATION

Work Life Classes

The Work Life Curriculum uses biblical principles, proven

job-skills training techniques, and engaging adult learning methods to ensure the participants understand and will internalize the information.


Work Life also incorporates mentors, called “Allies,” to provide the relational, friendship support that people so need when trying to make big life changes, and this support is offered for continuation throughout the first six months or a year after class graduation.

Work Life Graduate Testimonial

     This [class] has been a blessing to me in all aspects. We did not have a chance to do “Mock“ Dress for Success session. I have learned to not “work” in vain but as unto the Lord. The mentors are very supportive and encouraged the class to continue to learn and use God as your foundation; that stands firm when being attacked by curve balls. Overall, I highly recommend anyone for class no matter what your background is; there is always room for improvement.

Faith & Finances Class

Uniting people from varied backgrounds, Faith & Finances is designed specifically for low-income adults. We help address the challenges people in our city face while helping them rediscover their God-given dignity while exploring money management skills along with biblical stewardship principles.

Participants gain knowledge and understanding which they can use to propel them into the status of a valued employee.

Faith & Finances Graduate Testimonial

     When I began the Faith & Finances class, I felt I was in a good place personally. I wanted to see if this was a class that I could recommend to others that didn't have their act together. Not long after I began, I realized there were some holes in my plan and I could benefit from this training. I moved from observer to active participant. I made some long-term changes that I still adhere to. I became an Ally because I wanted to see others experience the freedom that I have experienced.

 

     ~ Stanley W. Bembry

     The teaching styles and methods were very good. Also the written material and handout. But one of the best ways the teacher used to help me manage my money was by telling me that if I put one hour's worth of my work pay away, I could save $6000 in a year’s time or even less. Another way was by telling me to give money to God like it’s His.

    One suggestion to improve the training would be giving more budgeting examples on paper by paychecks or by monthly income and bills . . .
