Career Transformation Ministry

Career Transformation Ministry provides practical guidance to support job seekers in finding and transitioning to a new position. We tie our discussions to scripture. Examples of topics include: resume assistance, best practices for networking, and interviewing skill development. We invite you to join us anytime for meetings on Thursdays from 7–8:15 pm in the Good Shepherd Room. While we discuss scripture as it pertains to those looking for their next career, this ministry is open to anyone regardless of faith. For more information, please visit www.crossroadscareer.org.
