The “Industry of Faith” is a faith-based organization created for networking and encouragement for those in and affected by the Oil and Gas industry in the State of Louisiana. As we all know, this industry has not been the same for the past couple of years, with significant downturn in natural gas and oil prices. This has made it even more difficult for companies to do business here in Louisiana.
With other factors affecting our way of life, the time has come for us, in this industry, to seek council and wisdom from our Lord and Savior.
There are hundreds of men and women across this state still unemployed in our industry, and in need of employment. There are many others who are employed, but in need of encouragement, and a way to stay positive in these troubled times. I believe that gathering in His name is a great place to start.
2 Chronicles 7:14 "If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land."
Our goal is to have monthly meetings with those who are involved in the Oil and Gas Industry. They can come and fellowship, network, hear an encouraging message from a local speaker, and pray for our country, our state and our industry. Companies are invited and encouraged to come in and sponsor a meeting. They will have an opportunity to give a brief overview of what they do in the industry. Those just looking for new opportunities are encouraged to come and share resumes and talk with others about possible employment opportunities.
Matthew 18:20 "For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them."
