WorkFaith Birmingham began holding workshops four years ago, and on March 23, 2018, we reached more than 500 total graduates since the beginning. Praise the Lord for this milestone! Each of these men and women have been impacted with the Gospel and empowered with the skills they need to succeed in getting and keeping a job.
We love watching God use WorkFaith workshops to impact the lives of our graduates.
Like Whitney and Misty from a recent class at the Lovelady Center. These two ladies did so well in their mock interviews, and were particularly impressive to one of our mock interview volunteers, that he arranged interviews for them the week after graduation and hired them both.
Or Tommy, a recent graduate who said, "My perspective on life is different now...WorkFaith has had a major impact on my life, and it helped me gain a better understanding about my need for spiritual development."
And Kelly, from one of our Salvation Army classes who showed up without a resume or any job prospects. During the class he put together a resume and came up with a job search plan. Now he has a job as a carpenter for a local company, and WorkFaith was able to help him find a place to live. He has constantly remarked about God's blessings and provision in his life.
So many of our graduates show up for a WorkFaith workshop defeated and hopeless. But when they leave the class, they are confident, empowered, and ready to succeed in finding a job and a new direction in life. Many of them grow closer to God during the class, as they hear the Gospel and study His Word. And some graduates even make decisions to begin following Christ during the workshop.
Over the last four years, we've been helped along the way by many faithful partners. Individuals, churches and businesses have come alongside of this ministry to provide support and encouragement to help us serve over 500 men and women in Birmingham. What has happened here at WorkFaith has truly been a team effort, and we are grateful to God for all who have played a part in what God is doing here. Thank you for the role you have played. We hope you will continue to be a part of what God is doing at WorkFaith.
