Sponsored by the Golden Triangle Baptist Association and the Women’s Missionary Union, CWJC offers free job skills and life skills training services to adult women of all races, religions, creeds and socio-economic status and provides resources for educational and employment needs.  Our focus area includes unemployed and underemployed women from Clay, Lowndes and Oktibbeha counties who are suffering from financial need, low self-esteem, abuse and a lack of marketable job skills.  Although an outreach program of the Golden Triangle Baptist Association, CWJC operates with its own Advisory Council and budget.  Applicants and participants are not required to be a Christian to apply, be admitted or graduate from training.

Our motto is planting seeds of hope.  CWJC is not an employment agency, but instead provides job training that will help guide participants in their search to gain or maintain stable employment.  By communicating with local employment agencies and area employers, we offer referrals and networking with business professionals who will give insight and advice about the current job market.  Each session typically includes a non-denominational Bible study, Basic computer, Money Management, Communications, Health & Nutrition, Relationship Building, Anger Management & Conflict Resolution, Employer Round table discussions, one-on-one Mentoring and Jobs for Life training.

CWJC is a part of the Golden Triangle Baptist Association and all women from Oktibbeha, Lowndes and Clay counties, regardless of religion, are welcome to enroll in the free computer training and job training sessions.  The training is typically held twice a year from January – April (night classes) and again from September – November (day classes).  A Level II class is also offered for our graduates. Call for more details about specific dates and times.

For those interested in applying, you may email the CWJC Site Coordinator at, call us at (662) 722-3016, or call the Golden Triangle Baptist Association at (662) 328-6802 with further questions about the program.

Graduate Testimonial

“I thank God for CWJC (Christian Women Job Corps) . This program came at a time in my life when I was facing many obstacles–In search for some computer skills to help me find a job and seeking direction from God. He led me to an ad in the newspaper for computer classes. When I entered the program I found it was Christian based and not only would I get computer skills, but Bible Study–more than what I expected, but what I needed. The word of God was taught in a way that I have never heard before and it helped me to understand that God really does have a Plan and Purpose for my life in spite of all my roadblocks.

Being in CWJC has helped me see roadblocks that I have faced as speed bumps. I was taught every skill needed in everyday life from the word of God here at CWJC. I now have a new confidence and joy that only comes from” Almighty God”. CWJC was a safe haven of peace, and love for me and that’s what was shown from every instructor the love of God. I will forever be grateful for CWJC and Mrs. Amanda Thornton, Site Coordinator. This program has truly been a “Blessing” in my life. I will continue to stand on Proverbs 3:5-6 and Jeremiah 29:11.”
