John Gum and I are headed to Washington DC tomorrow for a quick trip. We are visiting John’s fiancee, Ginny Peterson. She’s been working at Ebenezer’s Coffeehouse for the past 2 months. I love that place.

Ebz is the best example of intersecting our faith with our community that I’ve ever seen. It is a coffeehouse that is owned and operated by National Community Church. Their purpose is “coffee with cause”. Completely fair trade coffee. And the coffeehouse is a non-profit, so all of the proceeds go back into the community and overseas missions projects.

I am going to connect with Mark Batterson (lead pastor and founder of NCC) tomorrow afternoon for a bit. I have a lot of respect for Mark and what he’s doing for the kingdom. A true thinker, visionary and entrepreneur for God.
