Why Make God Known Coffee?
First of all, we are NOT selling our coffee for profit. We sell our signature coffee that we created while owning our own coffee shop to be obedient to God's voice. You see it all began when I (Jen) learned to put my priorities in God's order by putting my daughter first before making money.
At the time I was working as a coffee barista making an average of $100.00 a day in just tips. God had challenged me to put my daughter as a priority and to do so I had to switch my shifts around to be at home with her more before school instead of dropping her off at daycare. Doing so however made my tips go from $100.00 a day to only $3.00 a day.
I was so discouraged about this one day and totally bored waiting to clock out after doing everything ahead of schedule with no customers to serve, that I asked God why? Why did God ask me to give up my morning shift to be home with Emily more when He know I was a single mom at the time and needed the income. The answer to my why was a still small voice I heard say as clear as day, "To learn to do this, to use it to pour into the ministry I will show you."
The "this" was running the coffee shop I was now in charge of instead of just being a coffee barista. It was learning all the in's and out's of the business so that when the day came when God would literally give us the very same business, I would know how to run it. Not only that, after owning our own coffee shop 10 years later, God showed me the ministry He wanted us to use the coffee to pour into. The very church He has now called us to plant He had also spoken to me about when He spoke to me to sell our coffee shop to go into "full time ministry".
Since then, God has showed me that His coffee is to MAKE HIM KNOWN, to raise money for ministry, and not just our church here at Legacy, but the ministries we support. The first ministry God showed me was Operation Ignite Light whom we partner with to raise the funds needed to purchase backpacks full of everything a child needs their first night away from home, after being pulled from abuse or neglect.
This same ministry that our MGK Coffee supports is now partnering with Legacy Church to donate to us 100 backpacks to give to 100 children here in the Anchorage area. Since our experience as foster parents ourselves, God has spoken to me to begin a ministry called Kings Kids to help foster parents pay for the essential items children need coming into their home as well. This ministry has not began as of yet, but I know in God's perfect timing He will provide for us to do so through the coffee He gave to us to fund it in the first place.
We have done all this through acts of obedience and continued trusting in God as the heavenly father He is! By our continued obedience to give what He has given to us we help children in need in the foster care system as He shows us. It may not seem like a lot to you, but every time you purchase MGK Coffee and enjoy it, your purchase goes to support the ministry God has laid on our hearts, and YOU ARE PART OF IT!
