People need a third space or a relational environment that isn’t home / work / school. CAFE BARNABAS creates this culture while innovating and leading the tea industry. Our ministry team intentionally engages students with the goal of sharing their faith in Christ and being avalible to talk about anything. We are another possible connection point for a student unwilling to reach out to a pastor, parent, or police officer. The next step from our first connection point is engagment.
Every day our team invests high impact time into developing relationships with student volunteers. Cafe Barnabas is a platform allowing students to cultivate skills and charater in a real world setting. These skills produce self confidence, a common goal, and shared experiences . This quality relational time results in an understanding of that student’s strengths and struggles. This knowledge enables our team to relavantly challenges students to understand and come to faith in Christ or grow in their faith in Christ. Ultimately, we desire to develop community leaders.
