Planter’s Starbucks Office!

Church planter Bruce Logue makes Starbucks his office! When Bruce & Bev moved to Merced (central California) 14 months ago to plant a church to reach the predominantly young adult, educated population – Bruce set up his office in Starbucks. He works at his computer, reads, calls and visits – and interacts with people who stop by. Bev networks with people as a Speech Therapist. Since 10 September 2006 there has been a group of about 25 worshipping each week in a local Play House (arts theatre). “I realized we needed to slow down and notice people around us – to show simple acts of kindness to the people we meet.” Bruce told us.

    Peter, it was so nice to meet you in Seattle. And thanks for the comment about my Starbucks office.

    I just got back from Starbucks, and in the hour I was there three or four folks drifted by my table and started conversations.

    What a great place to office!

    Bruce, I had been making Gloria Jeans Cafe (Australian cafe franchise) a place for meetings. After listening to you, I am making it my “office” – reading, writing, etc. Opportunities come to greet people. Many people make it their “office”! Did you see the post about the church plant in a Gloria Jeans Cafe?

    I think that I will try somthing similar at the book store in the mall. The store has a cafe area. I did set up shop there while visiting my daughter while on vacation recently, but I didn’t have the approach (openness/availability) that Bruce showed, because I wasn’t in that frame of mind—but I am now.
