Dorcas Ministries celebrated 7 graduates of their 3rd Jobs for Life Class on Friday evening, May 10th. The commencement ceremony took place at First Reformed Church of Cary and included testimonials from the students, gospel singing by the talented Wray Sisters and a reception afterwards.
Dorcas volunteers led by Chris Forte and Bob Stapleton provided leadership support for the program, along with Dorcas staff Jill Straight. Gary McKinney, Dorcas Ministries’ Board President, and his wife Teresa, were on hand to personally congratulate the students and volunteer champions. Many thanks to First Reformed Church of Cary for hosting the ceremony, and the over 20 mentors and volunteers who make the program possible.
Our next Jobs for Life class is presently scheduled for the fall.
The 16 session class, held at Dorcas Ministries, covers key job readiness skills such as preparing a 60 second elevator speech, networking, and resume writing– all grounded in the biblical value that God uniquely gifted each person for work.
