Shannon, Javon, and Tori share their passion working at Holy Grounds Cafe: it’s all about being genuine and loving people where they’re at. It’s a good time barista-ing for Jesus!

18: Randy and Connie McDonald
The message of the gospel isn’t that we must get ourselves clean before coming to Jesus. The message of the gospel isn’t that we must become good enough for God to accept us into His family. The message of the gospel is the story of God reaching into our sin, into our mess, into our pain, our pride, our addiction, our darkness, and pulling us out of it all, not because of anything we did, but because of what Jesus did for us on the cross. It’s the glorious story of people getting what they don’t deserve. This is Randy and Connie’s story of grace.
19: Javon Brown
God is our Father, our Healer, and our Great Physician. Even through our sickness and hardships, He is constantly holding on to us, His children. When we put our faith in Him, He will bring us joy in our sadness, strength in our weakness, and life in our fallen state. This is Javon’s story.
