Why Faith-based and Free?


We believe everybody needs career ministry, because everyone gets vocationally sick sometime.  Those who are unemployed or underemployed are especially at risk.  Since God made us masterpieces for good works, faith in God can bring healing, hope and help. 


Why free?  Over the past year, we worked hard to bring the best of “high tech and high touch” career ministry resources.  We want to share with all Job Clubs because we don’t believe in competing.  We believe in completing.  We are all better together.  That’s why we are offering a basic career ministry package for free through the end of 2013, so that any job club can start and grow job and career search services with a faith-based approach.


More Career Ministry Resources?


Crossroads Career Network also publishes Crossroads Career Work Books in print and for e-readers.  Job clubs can join the network via annual membership and receive the complete menu of ministry resources and direct connection with all Crossroads Career members for best practice sharing.  For larger organizations, we also offer customized website development with job connection technology to engage employers and build local community.
