Economic Empowerment Ministry of Mt Gilead FGIM and the Workforce Partnership Team

The Economic Empowerment Ministry.  One of the hallmarks of the ministry of Bishop Daniel and Co-Pastor Elena Robertson has been a passion for proclaiming a practical and balanced message regarding the financial health and well-being of God’s people.  Bringing people and jobs together is the mission of Economic Empowerment’s annual job fair.  Our contacts with some of Central Virginia’s most competitive employers continue to give us the inside track on employment opportunities in both the public and private sector.

The collaboration with the Workforce Partnership Team has opened doors to numerous community resources as well as granted access to an increased number of high caliber employers. We thank God for the countless testimonies from job seekers and employers who have benefited from our efforts to bring people and jobs together. As the event date draws near, please visit our website for more information: http://www.thebalmingilead.org/economic_empowerment.htm

The Workforce Partnership Team members are joined together in a collaborative effort to develop a system that provides business services and employment and training opportunities to the unemployed and underemployed. The partners aim to create a collaborative seamless network of services that will streamline processes and facilitate sustainable employment that enhances the economic development of the region.

The partners’ goal are to be recognized by the business community as the source for recruiting job candidates and building the workforce to answer the needs of the emerging economy. The Workforce Partnership Team is focused around task force groups, which develop and implement projects related to the improvement of our workforce system; currently, we have created a task force around these five areas:

  1. Partnership Events
  2. Service Integration/Process Improvement
  3. Communication/Marketing 
  4. Servicing Clients with Barriers to Employment (i.e. Criminal backgrounds, mature workers, etc.) 
  5. Digital Divide (The issue around access to and the ability to use technology in both careers and job search)-This project is an outgrowth of research conducted by VCU which we decided to explore, develop and implement a solution for within our region.

All of these are designed to provide practical solutions to challenges our partner members have identified at a service level while working with our shared clients. Our goal is to create a truly seamless, comprehensive workforce system, which develops career pathways to success for individuals and talent pipelines for our business community.
