      Steve Naughton and Katherine Simons, volunteer leaders with the Job Networking Ministry at Roswell UMC, have been asked to join a planning initiative bringing together the full strength of the Greater Dalton (GA) Chamber of Commerce (Brian Anderson, CEO leading the charge), Dalton area churches, the Department of Labor, Murray County Chamber and Government, and others.
       The newly designed event kicks off Oct. 22, 23, and 24 at the Northwest Georgia Trade and Convention Center in Dalton, GA, offering jobs, workshops, resume writing, resume review by professional job coaches, on-site coaching, and much more. No charge for services. The Greater Dalton area has experienced a serious employment set-back due to a reduced customer base for carpeting.
       The RUMC Job Networking Ministry is currently involved with start-up programs in the Dalton area, and has coached several locations in Tennessee and Pensacola, FL. The United Methodist Church has produced 25 videos for promoting new area programs. The videos and information about RUMC’s Job Networking Ministry are available through
