Job Encouragement Tools
The Job Encouragement Tools ministry provides information for people seeking employment or contemplating a career change.
Chapelwood United Methodist Church’s Job Encouragement Tools (JET) Ministry brings employment and training resources to those in job transition.
The JET Ministry for Chapelwood United Methodist Church is a referral source to connect job seekers with potential employment leads. All participants are encouraged to represent good faith efforts. The provider of this service implies no guarantee of accuracy or availability from the job seeker or employer leads.
It is our genuine hope that our services will empower you and sustain you as you contemplate your path and make your choices.
Whether you have just lost a job, have been stuck in an extended job search, or are dissatisfied with where you are occupationally, you may be in a time of transition where you could use some extra emotional and spiritual support. Job transitions may cause feelings of loss, anger, fear, discouragement, or confusion. So often, we define ourselves by our jobs and during a transition period aren't sure who we are or where God is. JET Support Groups are offered at various times throughout the year. Please check www.chapelwood.org and search "jet support." If the Jet Support workshop is available it will be listed. If none are listed the Support Group is not meeting during this time.
