“Nick Synko’s session was thought-provoking and engaging surrounded by a backdrop of spirituality. The concepts presented continue to challenge me today as I discover more about my dreams and the dreams of those most dearest to me.”— Elizabeth Herness Peters
The Careers Through Faith ministry offers professionally-led programs designed to start participants on their journey to integrate their career, faith and life and learn practical “street smart” skills to compete in today’s challenging employment marketplace. These programs take place in various churches or the CTF Training Center in Ann Arbor, MI. These programs strive to move participants from “What’s next?” to “What’s BEST?”
The 90 Minute Evening Presentation by Nick Synko. This presentation helps participants begin the process of self-discovery and to acknowledge their faith as an important part of career decisions. This new awareness challenges participants to take a fresh look at their career choices from a far more mature standpoint, which leads to an awareness that viable alternative careers are indeed possible. As a result of this singular workshop we find inspiration often turns into action and a complete reassessment of career and life decisions from a faith-based perspective. Participants in this introductory workshop are encouraged to continue to further explore their career possibilities by attending a Workshop or Webinar.
The One-Day Workshop while covering the same topics as the 90 Minute Evening Presentation, participants have the opportunity for a more in-depth discussion of each topic and focused time to work within small groups to share their thoughts and learn from others. The design of this workshop allows participants to move from awareness to application of these concepts to their career, faith and life.
The Six-Week Workshop, Webinar or Retreat Weekend is an in-depth program which allows participants more time for reflection and discussion in small groups. Substantial time is also spent on networking strategies, resume and cover letter development and personal marketing strategies. An important benefit of this program is the team-based, support group activities both within and outside of the classroom, including prayer. Participants develop an awareness that no one should go through a career transition without the support, insight and feedback of others who understand.
Individual Coaching is available for those whose career situation requires more one-to-one attention, candid insight, feedback, direction and accountability from a professional career coach. We find there are questions and decisions that are inappropriate for a classroom setting and best served in a private manner.
