We serve as a resource connecting ministry in the area of career and economic development. We “link” and “connect” people with resources , empower and equip individuals and organizations with strategic tools needed to achieve success in the marketplace.
The Employment Network Ministry is comprised of a network of Recruiters, talent acquisition managers, project managers, business owners, career coaches, and human resources professionals with HR experience from major corporations, and non-profit organizations.
Our goal is to provide career seekers with access to job information, educational information, recruiters and other hiring officials by hosting recruiting events, employment info sessions, career readiness and training seminars.
We provide access to the New Birth Job Connection ATS Technology to connect Job Candidates and Employers seeking competitive talent for jobs, together as a point of contact for hiring and job fair opportunities. Our most powerful tool is the Prayer Network, encouraging job seekers during career transitions.
By pooling our resources and contacts we are able to provide New Birth Members and the community with a variety of professional complimentary services including: resume writing, interview coaching and seminars on various employment topics. Contact us with any job leads or employment opportunities that you or someone that you may know of has to be shared.
New Birth provides additional support to jobseekers, post pandemic & affected by COVID-19 such as:
The New Birth Employment Network & Job Connections has served thousands of Job Seekers, HR Professionals, and Employer Partners as an impactful Employment Service for the entire Community!
Providing Job Seekers and Employers with over 150 Career Resources including: Automatic Job Alerts, Direct Job Applications, Resume Builder, Interest Profiler, Career Tips of the Day, Powerful Networking, Dress for Success Clothing, Job Fair Manager, Employer Portal, Live Statistics, RSS Job Integration, Email Manager and much much more.
Faith-based Career Ministry Leaders from across the US were able to speak about the Career Ministry Wins, challenges, and key takeaways from serving those in career transitions. We all agreed that the Career Ministries that have 3 foundational components are most successful; “Spiritual, Emotional, & Behavioral ” well-being brings the most value to our ministries. Not many African American Churches offer a Career Ministry platform to this magnitude, and there is opportunity to share and to help other churches to start Employment Ministries to get America back to work.
The Breakout sessions allowed for each of us to share what is working well in our Ministries and what is the number one problem we would like to see solved. I was asked personally to share a testimony about one of our greatest outcomes from utilizing the Job Connections Platform. I shared how the “Prayer Portal” suicide text alert feature, was one of the most significant outcomes, ( Prayer Portal is used most frequently with New Birth Job Seekers).
We receive an alert text message anytime someone in our Ministry is threatening suicide.
Overall, the roundtable was an enlightening encounter, and we were honored to represent. The New Birth Employment Network Job Connection is a thriving Career Ministry!
Workforce Wednesday is designed to connect DeKalb County residents to eligible training providers and employers in a centralized location. DeKalb County residents can learn about Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) eligibility requirements, meet with eligible training providers and learn about high demand careers. This event equips DeKalb County residents with the knowledge and resources to overcome barriers to employment, education and economic development.
We focus on one goal: Understanding and responding to employer workforce needs. We connect employers with a regional workforce partner network that provides workforce development programs and services to ensure a pipeline of qualified workers and to help people get good jobs. New Birth Employment Network was provided an opportunity to share with local Employers how we will continue empowering business innovations “post-pandemic”, connecting and providing value through the New Birth Job Connection features for Employers.

We are grateful for the opportunity to be of service to our job seekers, Employers, Workforce Professionals, and the community.

The best is yet to come!
