Special to the
Neeley Caldwell, executive director for the Christian Women’s Job Corps of Lee County, recently served as trainer for Level 1 Training for site coordinators from across the country. Every two years, the national organization for Christian Women’s Job Corps and Christian Men’s Job Corps establish a site in Alabama to provide training for all who will lead local ministries of the CWJC and CMJC. Caldwell conducted training in Prattville June 19 – 22. In order for Caldwell to be selected as a trainer, she had to complete her own Level 1 Training in 2014 and Level 2 Training in 2016. When asked to serve as trainer, Caldwell agreed to complete a leadership class as well as several meetings with national leaders. “It was an honor to be asked to be a trainer. WMU (Women’s Ministry Union) has been so good, so helpful to me, I wanted to give back,” Caldwell said.
Caldwell has served as executive director for CWJC of Lee County for five years, working with hundreds of volunteers to provide a wide array of classes to local women in need, from computer skills to job skills to life skills. Serving as Trainer challenged Caldwell’s own leadership and teaching skills. “It was motivating and encouraging to hear about God working in representatives and sites throughout the country. I love being kept in the know with what’s going on in so many places. I will definitely like to serve again as trainer. Although it is hard work, I experience a sense of refreshing knowing I will return to lead the women in Lee County,” Caldwell said.
