The Career Life Ministry (CLM) was established in 2010 to offer the next generation of young adults and others the opportunity to learn a trade skill. This program is designed to teach a variety of crafts that will enable students to enjoy a lucrative career in the trades. Students enrolled in CLM typically do not have financial resources to attend other trade schools where tuition can cost several thousand dollars. Because many CLM students are often married, have children and working dead-end jobs trying to make ends meet, they do not have time to attend training offered at other trade schools.

The Career Life Ministry is a non-profit 501c3, Faith-Based Trade School. We're an Accredited Training Unit through the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) and sponsored by Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC), Austin Chapter. Students successfully  completing a CLM curriculum earn a NCCER credential that is recognized across the United States and are entered into a national registry. The CLM also provides linkage to employers across the country seeking craft employees.
