The first career missionary assigned to Poland was Ev and Rhonda Tustin. Ev had made contact in Maryland with Poles from Kraków, and they were seeking a church. Eventually, a church was started and began regular services. It was determined after time that a coffee shop would be a positive way to communicate permanence in the predominately nominal Catholic society, as well as provide a non-threatening entry point for our protestant church. All in the church agreed that regular services, conferences, sports ministry, English conversation, as well as the coffee shop would be excellent ministries that would result in more people coming into a relationship with Christ and experiencing New Life in the Kingdom of God. Having a physical presence establishes a launching point for ministry in this area. As a cathedral or a coffee shop church, it says we are here as the body of Christ in this world, on this corner, because He made all of this and called it good and wants to redeem it and renew it! Your gifts will enable this ministry to grow and become a launching point for reaching Krakow and beyond.
