We believe work is a part of God's identity, and He gave us work as a gift to continue His creation, live out our unique calling, and worship Him. Work has value and the power to heal. We need to make a shift in the way we view our work. Work isn't simply about what we do, it is also about who we are and created to be.

And with recent unprecedented economic uncertainties, unstable unemployment rates, job uncertainty and complacency as a result of the pandemic, the need for people to discover the dignity of work is more critical than ever before.Since January, we have equipped more than 100 leaders to take Jobs for Life back to their communities. Our goal is to equip 100 more this year.To do so, we must engage visionary leaders who desire to see their communities transformed. Your gift will support us in doing just that!

A majority of the Church's effort and resources for those in need however, begins with food, housing, and clothing. At the bottom of the list is work. But without employment, and the means to actually provide for themselves and their families, the cycle continues.
