"What's Next? God's Design For Job Change" uses the lives of 12 Bible characters who changed jobs to explore 24 relevant job transition issues, such as rejection, bitterness, failure, discouragement, waiting, and our personal identity, as well as God's purpose, provident hand, and preparation of us in the context of job change.
The truths in this study will help provide confidence that God is present and active in your job transition and the He has a specific design for the job search process, your new job, and for you.
Individuals who are in job transitions, their spouse and pastors, and groups who share the job transition challenge have gained encouragement and direction from the book content.
