Jobs for Life Class
In the Fall of 2018, we began a partnership with Lexington Rescue Mission to facilitate a Jobs for Life Class at The Mission. This is a 12 session training program. By training, equipping, and connecting churches, ministries, and businesses in communities, Jobs for life helps prepare men and women for meaningful work through honest relationships, mentoring, work-force development training, and an ongoing community of support. Our class this winter starts Wednesday, January 30 at noon with lunch and class will begin at 12:30pm. Call the Mission for more details or simply show up!
