Mission Statement

The mission of Christian Women's Job Corps of Lindale is to equip women with job skills and life skills in a Christ-centered environment.

 

What is Christian Women's Job Corps?

We are a job readiness program seeking to equip women with job and life skills in a Christian environment.  We are committed to meeting the individual learning needs of each student to empower them to gain self-confidence, set positive life goals, and find hope for the future. In addition to job skills training, a key component of our program is Bible study and personal mentoring so that women can grow spiritually.

We just completed our Fall semester with five program graduates, and are now enrolling for the Spring 2018 semester.
