San Angelo Christian Men’s Job Corps
Many of the men who come to Christian Men’s Job Corps exist in a world of poverty. Some are homeless, others are on the verge of being homeless, and others have family support (but not necessarily financial help) that makes it possible for them to avoid being homeless.
The reasons for their conditions are many and varied. Some have made poor choices that have resulted in criminal convictions. A number of them have become addicted to drug and alcohol. Others have fallen on hard times through conditions beyond their control such as illness or the economic downturn. Some of these men have grown up in poverty, and not knowing any other way of life, they feel destined to live out their lives in poverty.
It is common for some of them to feel hopelessly trapped in their circumstances while others are looking for help that will make it possible to work their way out of this condition. One man who came to the CMJC in search of help had a master’s degree in computer science, had worked more than twenty years at a well known company which has a presence in San Angelo. But he had been let go because the company was restructuring and his position no longer existed.
In an attempt to meet the needs of these various individuals, we have begun working with our participants one-to-one. Each of them has strengths around which we can develop a plan for finding employment, but each of them also faces barriers blocking their way. These strengths and barriers are as varied as the individuals themselves. A barrier which is typical of many of these men is related to their inner persons and typically appears in their attitudes and the way they interact with other people and attempt to resolve problems.
An important role of CMJC is to lead men to accept the lordship of Christ in their lives. This relationship is the key to dealing with all of life, including the barriers these men face. Please pray with us that we will be able to help the participants meet the risen Christ (the conversion experience) and allow Him to take control of their everyday lives (discipleship). – J. H.
