Training for Local and Community Missions
When you receive this letter we’ll be making final preparations for 2 days of training in Nashville, TN with the Chalmer’s Institute. For the past month we’ve been taking online classes to prepare us to become facilitators of Work Life. The time in Nashville will be the final steps to receive our certification.
The Chalmers Center trains churches and ministries in Work Life, a biblically integrated job preparedness curriculum designed specifically for people from backgrounds of generational poverty. In addition to practical job skills, the curriculum empowers participants to recognize that God is at work in the world and that their jobs are a way of participating in that work.
We are very grateful for our donors and supporters, and to those who have financially gifted the Metanoia Center, to make this training and certification possible! The potential this resource has in our town, and it’s surrounding neighborhoods, is huge. We’re very excited to add this offering to the Metanoia Center’s, and our own, catalog of equipping and training tools.
