The week also includes inspiring music, seminars, and educational opportunities for the kids along with childcare for the little ones. All are welcome to attend this free week to be Inspired, Challenged and Shaped by God’s Word (inspired, challenged, and shaped by God’s word is our tag line so it would be nice to have this included)

The Job Foundation

The Job Foundation seeks to eradicate present and future financial poverty for disadvantaged children in the Cedar Valley. Financial education, stewardship training, rewarding academic achievement, and good behavior are the main keys used to equip students for a life of financial stability. Children can begin in this program as early as 5 years of age and the hope is that they will consistently stay with the program until graduation. Students who remain steadfast in this program have the opportunity to earn several thousand dollars upon graduation to be used for further education, a car, and other life expenses.
