For Diaconate Clients Only - One on One Job Search Ministry

Clients will consult with the job search ministry for an initial assessment. Based on this assessment, we can provide resources in the area of resume writing, interview skills, networking, vocational training, workplace issues, etc. Clients can also participate in mock interviews and specific workshops designed to improve skills. Those who are unsure about their career path can access career assessment tools (Strong Interest Inventory and Myers-Briggs Type Indicator). We realize that everyone has specific needs and will work with you to gather resources in your specific area of interest. At this time, this ministry is open to Diaconate clients only.
