Heart of JfL
Flip the List Video
The Flip the List Video is one of Jobs for Life’s signature marketing pieces. It summarizes why Work is important to God and the dignity of every person. It demonstrates how Jobs for Life uses Work as means to break the cycle of poverty and joblessness. Use this video as a way to market your Jobs for Life ministry to your church and/or community to give a case why others should get involved.
The Joy’s Story-The Lord’s hand is in Everything video is one of Jobs for Life’s most impactful testimonial pieces. It takes the viewer on Joy’s emotional journey through the Jobs for Life program and highlights the enormous influence Margie Thompson, her Champion, played in Joy’s transformation. Use this video as a way to highlight your Jobs for Life ministry to your church and/or community to provide a compelling example of the divinely inspired outcome generated through the Jobs for Life program.

Joy came to her end when she learned she could not escape addiction and destructive behavior on her own. Every time she tried to quit she fell deeper. Through Jobs for Life, Joy met Margie, a caring friend who committed to walk alongside her. Through the story of Joseph discussed in class, Joy learned not to compromise and that the Lord’s hand is in all.

Daniel’s Story: Learning the Language of Work
Daniel began seeking employment after losing his job of 17 years. Originally, he did not believe he could learn anything new from the Martha O’Brian Center Jobs for Life class. However, after attending a job interview ill-prepared, Daniel decided to try the JfL class. Since completing the training course Daniel has grown in his presentation skills, confidence, and relationship with God. This is a great testimony video to show participants in the class.
