black churchThe Department of Labor has launched a program called the “Jobs Clubs,” designed to connect job seekers, churches and faith-based initiatives to one another in order to share resources and jobs announcements, according to

Although the program is in its initial stages, programs like this already existed in churches like the Metropolitan Baptist Church in Washington, D.C.

“In the past, so much that happened in the black church was through word of mouth. If someone was out of job, they went to the pastor and the pastor had certain connections. It was all about who you knew. Or we put them up on bulletin boards,” Wood said. “That kind of worked then. Today, churches do not get actively involved as they could or should. They do not create the vehicle. Some are still doing the old school way. But that is kind of playing out.”
