PRLog - June 27, 2012 - Brooklyn, New York June 25, 2012– 2 weeks ago Senator Gillibrand (NY) 2012 sponsored an Interfaith Symposium - Job Clubs & Career Ministries with the theme, "On the Front Lines of Getting New Yorkers Back to Work". Representatives of U.S. Department of Labor, Workforce Development, New York City Department of Small Business Services, several faith based organizations throughout New York State and Empowering Today's Professionals, were in attendance.
Continuing the engaging conversations from Senator Gillibrand’s symposium, Empowering Today's Professionals is collaborating with The Brooklyn Tabernacle Ministry to host a Career Seminar to be held on Saturday, June 30th 17 Smith Street – Brooklyn, New York 11201 - 11:00 A.M.
The Ministry at Brooklyn Tabernacle – “believes that it’s a lot more than just finding a job.” We help people cope with issues faced when losing a job, or with members who have been in the job search market for quite some time: Why did this happen to me? What plan does God have for my life? Who am I? Is my faith strong enough to overcome these obstacles?
“Assisting our membership and community at large with practical advice on the life-skills necessary to take ownership of one’s career directly comes from Christ’s command in James 2:15 -16 to meet people practical needs. Our expectation is people will come away from the seminar with both hope and the life-skills that will allow their God given talents to thrive.” Dan Arbeeny – Brooklyn Tabernacle Ministry
Keynote Speaker Rod Colon, Founder and CEO of ETP Network (Empowering Today’s Professionals)
As the accountability for their own success begins to take shape, members discover that being in control has incredible advantage. “Own Your Career” is far more than just a tagline… it’s the guiding principle for everything we do and everything we stand for.
If you’ve been involved with other networking organizations, then strap yourself in for a whole new experience! Rod Colon takes the traditional guidelines for career management and completely rewrites the rulebook.
Who are the most important people in your life? The most popular answer to that question is: “My family.” For most of us, “family” represents those individuals who believe in us and trust us to provide them with the necessities of life. These are the people to whom you have the greatest responsibility and who will benefit the most from your successful job search. They are also the individuals who endure hardship if your search is unproductive and there’s no other source of income. They deserve to have you working at nothing less than peak performance during your job search. This Saturday your family will be very proud of you and the accomplishments to follow,” states Rod Colon, Founder & CEO ETP Network
Mr. Tim Adams, Chief Private Brands Officer -- Macy’s Inc., will offer a corporate prospective on “What Corporations are looking for in Executives and the Importance of Positive Networking Attitude.” " What each and every employee can bring to their job to make a meaningful , positive impact to their company's success is just amazing! The "Power of One" is all about YOU and your ability to feel confident in what YOU can bring to your employer and IMPORTANTLY what your employer can bring to you.....YOU can make a difference!

About Brooklyn Tabernacle
The Brooklyn Tabernacle is a multicultural, non-denominational church in the heart of downtown Brooklyn. The church began with a handful of members in a small, rundown building in a difficult area of the city, and today it is a congregation of about ten thousand people who attend the weekly services. Pastor Jim Cymbala and his wife Carol, who directs the Grammy Award winning Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir, have had the privilege to not only preach the gospel in the inner city, but also to see new churches grow out of the congregation in response to needs in other parts of the city and elsewhere in the country, as well as internationally. Because of its location, The Brooklyn Tabernacle has a unique open door- to minister to-the cross-cultural melting pot of New York City. The church itself includes members from all walks of life, and diverse ethnic and national origins. Central to the growth and outreach of The Brooklyn Tabernacle has been a strong emphasis on prayer, through the Tuesday Night Prayer Meeting and the Prayer Band, which is devoted to interceding for needs from around the world.
