One of Northridge Church’s 2016 Advent Conspiracy partners is 441 Ministries, a local Christian non-profit organization whose mission to “partner with local churches and other like-minded organizations to bring hope, healing, and holistic development through the proclamation of the gospel of Jesus Christ to the Beechwood neighborhood of Rochester.”
One of its new, exciting ministries is the development of a new coffee shop, the New City Café. 441’s vision for the café is “to see our neighborhood flourish, by promoting economic development and Christ-like business principles with a youth-centric approach. As an employer, New City Cafe will focus on professional development, equipping teenagers with the necessary skills for careers later in life. As a ministry, New City Cafe will focus on spiritual growth by mentoring teenagers to develop Christ-like values."
This is real “rubber-meets-the-road" ministry, and the gospel is central to everything 441 does.
The café is scheduled to have its Grand Opening on Friday June 9, and you can support their mission by simply stopping in soon to get a cup of coffee! The café is located at 441 Parsells Avenue, right in the heart of the Beechwood neighborhood. You can also check out their Facebook page:
