JOB FAIR
TAILGATE COOK-OFF &
EQUIPMENT SHOWCASE

The 2021 IOFLA Job Fair & Tailgate Cook-Off will be held on Thursday, October 21st 

 

Every year the Industry of Faith - Louisiana puts on our annual Job Fair & Tailgate Cook-Off. This is our core event which was started as a directive from the Lord to help those in need, to be able to find a way to provide for themselves and their families while gaining encouragement from fellow believers.

 

Once again, it will be graciously hosted by our friends at River Parishes Community College

in Gonzales, LA at the Technical Training Center

RPCC has one of the most state of the art Technical Training schools around.
