Adult Life Skills Classes

The second part of our vision involves reaching beyond housing and assisting with education in many other areas. A lack of basic life skills, education, and experience using those skills can contribute to low self-esteem and a lack of desire to continue in a positive direction. It is a vicious cycle and it is one that the Bridge ministry would like to help break.

While some women are in need of low-income housing to help them save money, that is only one area that must be tackled in Bridging between the world and Christ. Our ministry will offer opportunities for women to learn skills that they may have never learned. The classes will vary from quarter to quarter and we will advertise in low-income areas of our community.

  • Housing
  • Managing Money
  • Healthy Relationships
  • Raising Children
  • Domestic Skills
  • The Value of Work
  • Bible Study

In conversations with different agencies in the West TN area, we have found that while there are similar skills classes offered in some places, the missing piece is having the Bible as the foundation of all teaching. We respect the local agencies who are working to train women in these areas and we will continue to partner with them to learn more about what can be done to help women in poverty. But even the people we have interviewed agree that more needs to be done from a Christian foundation.
