Mission and Vision
To equip people for life and vocation; to empower and encourage them to be all they desire to be, as we teach and grow them within a Christian context. At CJC, people receive a second chance and find hope, encouragement, and confidence to seek a vocation that matches their potential. Programs help them harness their talents and set up plans to achieve their goals. They are prepared and strengthened to meet life's challenges in the workplace and in daily life. CJC serves the people in Kendall and it's surrounding counties, or those who may relocate just to attend our programs. Programs are FREE to those enrolled.

CJC’s PREPPED FOR LIFE PROGRAM equips women to navigate their path toward better life-choices and a new start. It equips them with the tools to obtain and maintain employment which leverage their God-given skills and talents. If someone is suffering from past or present hurts, our programs can help the healing process. We work with our students strengths, identifying their talents, sharpening their skills, and encouraging them towards God’s intended path.
This six-week job prep program, held in-person and via Zoom, includes generational programming, dealing with hurt and guilt, setting boundaries, building character, conflict resolution, anger management, healthy relationships, domestic violence, money matters, identifying your gifts, completing your resume, job applications, confidence in talking about your gifts, interviewing for specific jobs, and money matters. Our curriculum prepares you for life’s challenges, today’s workforce, and builds character that employers are looking.
Educating and helping heal women inmates and probationers. CJC’s WOMEN INMATES - PREPPED FOR LIFE PROGRAM equips women inmates to navigate their path toward better life-choices and a new start. The majority of women who end up incarcerated did not learn God’s truths in childhood. We work with our students strengths and encourage them towards God’s intended path. The goal is to help them become healthier, happier, more productive people by dissolving self-imposed obstacles, limitations, and destructive life-style choices. Often, the answer to one’s future is in their past. If someone is suffering from past or present hurts, our programs can help the healing process. This program puts them on the path to life transformation with healing hope.
This is a five-week faith-based life-skills and behavior management program, held in-person in the Kendall County Jail. The curriculum covers generational programming, dealing with hurt and guilt, setting boundaries, building character, conflict resolution, anger management, healthy relationships, domestic violence, and money matters.
