MEET THE ONES TO MAKE IT HAPPEN
IN THE COFFEE INDUSTRY
AND IN THE CLUB MINISTRY
My current place of residence is in Elmira, Canada, but I have called many places home and many friends family over the years. I work in construction as a painter and love it! I would rather be outside than indoors and barefoot than wear shoes. I'm a writer and a runner -- the latter more of a struggle than the former. I dream big and there are a lot of things I enjoy, but nothing tops a great cup of coffee and good conversation.
Go-to beverages: Wild Ginger Latte (of course), Maple Latte or Americano with a little whipping cream and maple syrup
-- AKA The Wild Ginger
Small Town Coffee Roaster
I met Dwight Peachy in a downright awkward but miraculous way -- reaching out to a local cafe to find out who their roaster was which they gladly shared -- and I could not be more thankful they did.
Dwight approaches each roast with precision and heart while simultaneously keeping his wife and daughter (and little on on the way) at the forefront of his priorities.
He's a great guy and a phenomenal roaster. We count ourselves blessed to be partnered with him.
Go-to Beverage: Good fresh medium roast pour over or French press
LONG MILES COFFEE
Coffee Grower/Exporters, Burundi
I am always tempted to say that I came across Long Miles Coffee by accident, but I know deep in my heart that things like this are rarely accidents.
They take great pride in building community -- one farmer, one bean and one roaster at a time.
Each person I have worked with through this process has been wonderful and though they have grown into a larger company, they have managed to stay personal and intentional. We can't wait to work with them for years to come!
We are a family of women who believe we belong to God and to each other. Our mission is to build consistent and authentic relationships, first with each other and then with our friends working at The Manor (Guelph) with the hope that each of us will find our sense of belonging and worth in a consistent and authentic relationship with our Heavenly Father. Our hope is that His presence in us will transform not only our hearts, but our cities and our world, to the point where no human is treated as a product but rather as a person with immeasurable worth.

JEN AND PHIL SNELL
Hope Ministries, Brazil
Jen and Phil moved their family of four to Brazil thinking they were planting a church. Through a series of events, what they actually ended up doing was reaching out to girls prostituting themselves on the streets of Joao Pessoa. Their heart for these girls mirror's the Father's Heart for them and the girls can feel it. They released an eye-opening documentary about their work there and the Manor Team had the privilege of hosting a showing. Immediately they connected and have felt like family ever since.
