Trapped in an eight year cycle of unemployment, Ben’s dreams and ambitions began to wither away. Applying for job after job and never hearing back, he lost hope; His mental health worsened. He struggled to leave the house. He even considered suicide.
Jobless and hopeless, Ben had nothing left and no way out. Until one evening when his friend insisted he come out for a drink with him.
Meeting Gareth at the bar that night led Ben to his local CAP Job Club, where he encountered the love of God through a supportive church community.
After finding not just work, but hope in Jesus, Ben has never looked back.
