Intro. to Coffee House Ministry
Since 1957, coffeehouse evangelism has proven to be a very useful ministry tool in reaching people for Christ. In this period of time, much has been learned to correct the many discouraging failures and enhance the overall effectiveness of coffeehouse work. At this point in time, God is still blessing and choosing to use coffeehouses as valuable means of evangelism, but a more sensitive, mature, and Spirit-directed approach is being required. This lesson seeks to lay down some fundamental principles that will help in establishing a healthy, powerful, and effective coffeehouse ministry. This course is available in: English, Russian
Developing the Coffeehouse Strategy
Any new endeavor that is going to succeed must have a strategy and a coffeehouse is no exception. The circular planning model* is one approach that can be used in thinking through a coffee house strategy. It covers all phases of strategy building: research, organization, action, and evaluation. It is circular, not linear, since each stage is interrelated and will be reconsidered throughout the process.
