Building Bridges with Coffee

Dave Kelso, a long-time member of Peace Church, has always had a passion for coffee and a deep desire to serve others. Recognizing the role that coffeehouses often play as community gathering places, Dave saw an opportunity to combine his love for coffee with his faith. With the support of Peace Church, Dave embarked on a mission to create a ministry centered around this beloved beverage.

Connecting Through Conversations

At the heart of Dave's ministry is the belief that genuine conversations can be a catalyst for sharing the teachings of the Gospel. By offering free or discounted coffee at local coffeehouses, Dave creates an inviting space where people can come together, engage in meaningful conversations, and explore their own spiritual journeys.

Spreading Faith and Love

Dave understands that acts of service and kindness can be powerful ways to demonstrate God's love in the world. Through his coffee ministry, he not only connects with individuals on a personal level but also has the opportunity to share the message of faith and love that Peace Church embodies. Each interaction over a cup of coffee becomes an opportunity to inspire, encourage, and plant seeds of hope in the lives of others.

The impact of Dave's coffee ministry on the community has been profound. Through his unwavering commitment and the power of the Gospel message, lives have been transformed, relationships have flourished, and a sense of belonging has been fostered. The local coffeehouses have become cherished spaces where individuals from all walks of life can find acceptance, support, and spiritual nourishment.

Fostering Community Engagement

By bringing people together over a shared love for coffee, Dave has facilitated a sense of community that extends beyond traditional church walls. The diverse conversations that take place in these coffeehouses transcend societal boundaries and create an atmosphere of inclusiveness and unity.

A Venue for Outreach

Dave's coffee ministry serves as a platform for bringing the Gospel to those who may never step foot inside a church.
