Job development and the provision of sustainable, living wages are at the heart of WorldCrafts’ vision to offer an income with dignity and the hope of everlasting life to every person on earth. This vision fits hand-in-glove with the mission of Christian Women’s Job Corps and Christian Men’s Job Corps (CWJC/CMJC): to equip women and men, in a faith-based context, for life and employment.
As a ministry of national WMU, CWJC/CMJC sites are changing lives around the world by offering
- High school equivalency diploma preparation
- English as a Second Language (ESL) classes
- Computer classes
- Bible study
- Job readiness skills
- Life skills
Are you ready to join us in the fight against poverty? What if we told you that it’s as simple as hosting a one-month online benefit?
Renee Mathis of Tulip Grove Baptist Church recently hosted a benefit for Begin Anew in Nashville, TN. Renee shares, “Our WMU/Women on Mission hosted a [benefit] for Begin Anew in conjunction with our Women’s Ministry Mini Retreat August 18. The Women’s Ministry loved it so much they want to do it again for our Ladies Fall Retreat October 19-21! Our Mini Retreat raised $438.63 for Begin Anew. Our goal is to raise $500 during the Fall Retreat benefit. For us, having a WMU WorldCrafts [benefit] in conjunction with a Women’s Ministry retreat was the perfect way to partner between WMU/Women on Mission and Women’s Ministry.”
How to Host a Benefit for CWJC/CMJC
You, your small group, or your whole church can host a one-month online WorldCrafts benefit for the CWJC/CMJC site you wish to help.
Simply complete an online registration form and WorldCrafts will do the rest. Be sure to register no later than the 15th of the month prior to the month you wish to host the benefit.
In the week prior to your benefit, you will receive a link to a webpage created just for you, along with a promotion code, promotional pieces, and instructions for hosting the benefit.
During the month of your online benefit, you simply promote the benefit through social media, email, and your church or community’s promotional systems. You can invite your friends to spread the word by liking and sharing your posts on Facebook and Instagram, and retweeting on Twitter.
In the month following your benefit, we will send a check for 20% of your proceeds directly to your selected CWJC/CMJC site. You will receive an email notifying you of the total amount donated, along with fun ways to share your results on social media.
