Lila has lived in various states and even in other countries. She has traveled extensively around the world and loves to talk about her adventures. Lila graduated from Lassiter Highschool in Marietta, Georgia. She received her Bachelors degree from Kennesaw State University. (How about them Owls?) Lila has worked in ministry for more than 20 years and loves helping people who want to change their life for the better.

Becky Kite

Becky Kite

Program Coordinator

Becky was born and raised in Nacogdoches, although she did try Florida before deciding there was no place like Texas and came home. She currently resides in Cushing, Texas. She attended Nacogdoches High School, but now has two grown daughters of her own. My how time flies! Becky worked for Angelina Home Health Services and Veva J Hawkins CPA before coming on board with CWJC. She currently serves as our Program Site Coordinator for Christian Women’s Job Corps. She has been with us since 2014, and she has a very supportive husband Jay Kite who she married on May 30, 2018. Becky is a budding artist and occasionally you can see some of her paintings online. They are pretty good if we can say so.

Making a Difference

CWJC exists to empower individuals to experience spiritual, personal and professional success. Success can be measured in many ways:

Here at CWJC we strive to give you the tools you need to be able to make a living wage. We partner with local businesses to help you achieve this goal. Our local businesses provide mentors, special speakers, and instructors for our program. Some of the businesses even hire our grads.

We partner with both Angelina College and the Angelina College Adult Education Consortium (ACAEC) to help you achieve this goal. ACAEC offers our participants the chance to obtain a Highschool Equivalency Certification. While Angelina College has scholarships available for our students who complete our program and qualify for certain certification programs.

Healing a broken relationship can be tough. CWJC offers classes and techniques that can help you determine wither the relationship is fixable and how you can go about repairing it.

A healthy Spiritual life can bring peace, power and a sense of inner well-being. As you work on a better understanding of your spiritual needs and how it connects you to others, then you can gain insight on how to prevent future problems. You can even learn how to deal with difficult problems when they come around.

A sure sign of success is when you can give back to your community. CWCJ will not only help prepare you for a job, we will provide you opportunities to help others.

There are some things that are difficult to define or measure. Sometimes personal goals can be unique and specific to your needs or dreams. We cannot always compare ourselves to others. Perhaps you have something that you want to accomplish, here at CWJC we want to offer you the encouragement you need to achieve that Goal.

Here’s what our students had to say about our program:

I didn’t have a Highschool Degree, and they helped me get a Highschool Equivalent Degree. And I passed the first time I tried! Yes.

Sophia Jones

CWJC really helped build my confidence during an interview and the certificate I got helped me find a better paying job! Highly recommended.

Janice Green

The instructors were great. You could tell that they really wanted to help. I learned so much from the ladies. I just loved it!

Kate Lewis

5 stars all around. Not only did this program help me. It helped my daughters. Now we are all employed.

Luanne Harvey

I struggled holding on to a job. I lacked social skills and they really held me back. CWJC worked with me and now I am doing great.
