We continue to be in awe of how God is working in and through churches and ministries around the country to help individuals find meaningful work. Men and women are not only learning the skills needed to find and keep a good job, they’re also entering the workforce with a strong supportive community and a transformative understanding of true personal identity which helps them on their journey. (Scroll down to read stories from JfL classes around the country.)

As we look forward to 2018, we’re excited about the next steps for JfL—but we need your support! Your gift to JfL will help us equip, train, and support more ministries helping people find and keep employment. We depend on supporters just like you to help us continue this mission.
