“Nick suggested that ideally our careers will reflect our spiritual values and that we should first reflect on those values in order to find the way to an ideal career. Not only did I find this a worthwhile train of thought to pursue, I just plain enjoyed Nick because he inspired confidence in his listeners. I believe that he not only has developed a great set of tools for his clients but that his own spirit inspires his clients to believe they can identify and achieve their career goals.”— Cathy Sheets
Careers Through Faith (CTF) is a non-profit organization that offers job coaching and career discernment from a Christian perspective.
CTF is founded on Matthew 25:14-30, the Parable of the Talents. In this parable, Jesus explains how each of us is gifted with a unique set of talents for which we are accountable.
CTF is all about self-discovery. We help individuals define and deploy their talents in today’s world by providing straightforward, process oriented programs where they learn career discernment from a faith-based perspective. Participants are taught how to achieve their goals using street-smart job search strategies, resume writing, networking, and interviewing skills.
This self-discovery builds upon the interrelationship of the following three factors:
The first factor helps people discover their inner SAINT – Strengths, Abilities, Interests, and Natural Talents through our programs and counseling services.
The second factor is the discovery of their mission and purpose. We believe everyone has a responsibility to serve God, fulfill their purpose in life, and leave a legacy. CTF helps people accomplish these often-difficult tasks.
The third factor is securing a sustainable income. People can only keep using their SAINT and advancing their mission if they have a sustainable income. We show them how.
The interweaving of these factors brings far more meaning, fulfillment, and contribution to a person’s life. We believe this is God’s Call on every individual.
