MBC offers a Career Network Ministry and a Classifieds board with job postings to assist our church family in finding and securing employment. Please see our job board at mcleanbible.org/classifieds.
The Career Network Ministry (CNM) provides ministry and caring support to anyone in a work life transition. We offer moral and prayer support in a safe environment, and exchange information, ideas and resources. CNM also provides consultation and training for skill development, job search development, resume development, job search techniques, networking and interviewing techniques. We provide career assessment, including consultation on discovering your spiritual gifts, talents, interests, experiences and potential career options.

Words cannot say how much Career Network at MBC has ministered to me. I have attended two meetings at CNM at MBC. I am so thankful for a group of caring people (the greeters, Mary, my resume reviewer, the speakers, and the prayer warrior - I forget her name). Yes, it provides networking and education, but more than that, God is using it to bring hope and perspective. Through it, He is reminding me that He provides and His timing is perfect. I found out a month ago that I was being let go after 16 years of working at a place where I loved my work. God is showing me more than I could ever imagine and reminding me He is my sufficiency. Great is His faithfulness! Blessings on your team!
