A group of pastors from Unite Raleigh met Dec. 10 to begin planning a job fair and seminar to help the unemployed find work.
The group was started by Biblical Wellness Ministries (BWM) with the intent to come alongside pastors and help them in fulfilling their calling and to facilitate pastors working with other pastors, connecting them with a purpose.
Unite Raleigh is a roundtable for racial reconciliation. However, due to the recent economic issues pastors felt a great burden.
“We prayed together and this is what came out of it,” said Jerry Lankford, executive director and counselor of BWM. “We need to do more for others rather than pat them on the back and say we’re praying for you.”
The job fair is an evangelical cross-denominational and cross-racial effort, said Lankford. Many area churches are involved.
“Many networking groups tend to focus on just professionals, said Lankford. “We want to include others.”
The job fair is still in the planning stage and set to take place some time in 2009.
