Careers With A Purpose (Careers) is a (501c3) non-profit ministry based in Denver, Colorado. Taking a bold faith-based approach, we encourage and equip students and adults to take positive steps towards finding and pursuing their career calling. Careers is for those adults who are unemployed or unfulfilled in their current careers, seeking job transition, or wishing to sharpen their job search skills. Our approach is comprehensive, with a focus on the emotional, spiritual, relational and skill-building aspects of our client's journey.
Careers is also for high school and college students and their families. Helping students find the right path that fits the students’ God-given strengths is our specialty. Whether that path includes college, vocational school, military, a gap year, or entering the workforce, we can help.
THE BEGINNING – OUR HISTORY
After twenty-five years in corporate America and non-profit ministries, Gary Hansen experienced firsthand the effects of job loss. As a result, Hansen founded Careers With A Purpose in February 2009; a non-profit ministry that seeks to help individuals in any phase of job transition through comprehensive tailored, individual coaching.
THE ROADMAP – OUR MISSION
Inspiring each generation to apply their God-given strengths to their life, career and legacy.
Our mission is our driving purpose, and it guides every action and decision we make as an organization.

Statement of Faith
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, only infallible, authoritative Word of God;
We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit;
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father and in His personal return in power and glory;
We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful humanity, regeneration by the Holy Spirit through faith in Jesus Christ is absolutely essential.
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life;
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, they who are saved unto the resurrection of life and they who are lost unto the resurrection of damnation;
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
The Statement of Faith does not exhaust the extent of our beliefs. The Bible itself, as the inspired and infallible Word of God that speaks with final authority concerning truth, morality, and the proper conduct of mankind, is the sole and final source of all that we believe.
