Gibson County Christian Women’s Job Corp
    421 East Armory Street      
Trenton, Tennessee  38382

 Christian Women’s Job Corp celebrates its twentieth (20th) anniversary this year. Today, the ministry has twenty-five (25) sites across the state of Tennessee, one hundred sixty-seven (167) nationally as well as sites in Mexico and Africa. The ministry was established for empowering women toward self-sufficiency and productive lives.
 The Gibson County site was nationally certified in 2003 and operates as a thrift store, not only serving the community; but, providing income for the operation of the ministry. The site is staffed by volunteers and supported by the community and churches in Gibson County through donations both monetary and in-kind. The thrift store, Twice Blessed, also operates a small food pantry and screens applicants for utility assistance provided by the Trenton Ministerial Alliance.
 Classes such as parenting, computer, budgeting, and Bible study are held next door to the thrift store and are designed to meet women’s individual needs. Participants in the program benefit from a support group and a mentor who is assigned to them personal.
  Gibson County Christian Women’s Job Corp operates as a non-profit under the 501c3 of the Gibson Baptist Association.
 Site Manager, Christy Skelton, welcomes any questions you may have about the organization, how to donate to this organization or how you can volunteer to assist with such a worthy cause. You may reach Christy at 731-855-3305 or take a look at their Facebook page.
 Thanks, Gibson County Christian Women’s Job Corp, for your support of the Chamber and all you do for Gibson County!

Board Member Spotlight

Board Member Name: Felecia Teddleton
Business/Company: Felecia Bella Boutique
Position: Owner/ Entrepreneur
Work phone: 731-205-2153

Area of expertise
Being a business owner/ a personal stylist and of course a buyer
Other Interest
I love spending extra time with my family and going to the river to just relax and get away. One of my favorite things to do is to read and study. I’m always reading Christian books and books on how we think. Of course, I love fashion and looking at all new styles, color, and fabrics.
Why did I join the chamber?
I feel as a business owner it’s very important to have an active role in your local chamber to be seen and have a voice. As a small business, you become a part of something much greater than your four walls. It’s always good to help others and learn and grow so being involved opens yours eyes to a bigger picture.
Why do I serve on the Board?
To me it’s being a finger on your hand. But it takes the five fingers to make the whole. Just being able to help and serve our county, brings great rewards. I just want to see this area grow and prosper beyond our wildest dreams. It’s very personal to me.
What is the chambers role in the business community?
Again, when small businesses add together we become stronger. Attending the events and classes offered ready helps to educate and learn. Then taking the knowledge back to your business helps you grow. It’s a great service offered to small businesses to be a part of something much bigger. On the flip side, you only gain from what you put in.
Does your business have one of these signs?  If not, call the Chamber Office (855-0973) to find out how you can get yours.
 You don't want to miss out!
