ABOUT ECONOMIC EMPOWERMENT

ECONOMIC EMPOWERMENT MINISTRY

Mission: 
Providing spiritual and practical tools and resources to empower members and the community to prosper

Vision: 
Empowering members and the community to live in financial freedom

“Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.”  3 John 1:2

Our members are important to us. Whether personal, professional, spiritual, social or physical, we aim to provide resources that will support each area of their lives. The Economic Empowerment Ministry (EEM) maintains a key presence in the lives of members who are seeking financial freedom and economical wholeness.


We teach the value of putting “your feet to your faith,” which 
can lead to true, personal, and financial transformation.


Just what do we do
? We build relationships with area employers and connect our members to employers who are seeking new talent. We host job fairs, provide résumé assistance, post open jobs on our website, maintain a business directory for members who have businesses, and provide online resources and training opportunities.
