Career Education through the Church.
Drier, Harry N.
As trained counselors, career educators, and career education guidance and counseling programs have become increasingly available, there has been a tendency for the church to lose the perspective of its role in preparing people, particularly the young, for purposeful and satisfying lives. A church-based career development program would provide resources and experiences which would enable each individual to assess and appraise his/her own abilities and develop and maintain a sense of purpose, a calling that is personally his/hers. Church-sponsored career education programs might include youth drug community counseling; adult alcohol community counseling; emergency family assistance center; career seminars; parent discussion groups; daily preparation for job environment; and being a witnessing Christian on the job. Genuine spiritual revival must await the rediscovery of the Christian significance of daily work, and the church can lead the challenge. (BL)
