Operation Transition Houses

Operation Transition Houses provide homes for boys and girls who are transitioning from orphanages (age 12) before predators can pull them into the world of sex trafficking in Moldova. These homes are safe places for kids to sleep and learn a life skill so they can eventually transition into society. Transition Houses is a ministry of one of our missionaries, Oleg Reutki. The homes cost $8,000 and are being built in Moldova, Romania and other neighboring countries. Drop a donation in one of the buckets at the bookstore.

Kingdom Growers Coffee

At The Corner, we are proud to serve mission-sourced coffee from Kingdom Growers and we share their powerful vision: Love through mission, respect through business.

Part ministry, part business, part community development. These three pillars of the Kingdom Growers ministries are all founded on biblical principals. In Genesis we see that all people are unique, valuable and made to work. Kingdom Growers gives people around the world a chance to use their talents to  provide for their families and communities. We also see in books like Matthew and Acts that a faithful response to the Gospel is an active one. Kingdom Growers gives missionaries access to unreached people so they can share the love of Christ. 

"Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men" Colossians 3:23   

Here at Kingdom Growers, we hold to the "Principal of Subsidiarity". Simply put, the person closest to a problem is the most equipped to solve it. This means that no farmer, artist, or worker of any kind is "ours". We work WITH people around the globe to tackle real-world problems with creative and sustainable solutions. The most crucial of these problems is man's need for salvation. Lucky for all of us, this problem has already been solved; we just need to share the solution. This is why Kingdom Growers exists. 

Kingdom Growers operates as a business simply because we believe that work leads to independence. People are given the opportunity to perfect and expand their craft as they sell to Kingdom Growers, allowing them to have a sustainable livelihood that could exist with or without Kingdom Growers. We never seek to create a dependent partner, but an empowered one.

Come by The Corner to enjoy a cup and connect with others.


10 Books Every Christian Should Read

Beyond the 66 books of the Bible, here are 10 highly recommended books to read at least once and perhaps return to over the years as a follower of Jesus.

1. The Pursuit of God
(1948), A. W. Tozer

During a train trip from Chicago to Texas in the late 1940s, A.W. Tozer began to write The Pursuit of God. He wrote all night, and when the train arrived at his destination, the rough draft was done. The depth of this book has made it an enduring favorite. Essential.

2. Mere Christianity
(1943), CS Lewis

In 1943 England, when all hope was threatened by the inhumanity of war, Lewis was invited to give a series of radio lectures addressing the central issues of Christianity. First heard as informal radio broadcasts, the lectures were then published as three books and subsequently combined as Mere Christianity. Total Classic.

3. The Hiding Place
(1971), Corrie ten Boom w/John & Elizabeth Sherrill)

Here is a book aglow with the glory of God and the courage of a quiet Christian spinster whose life was transformed by it. A story of Christ's message and the courageous woman who listened and lived to pass it along — with joy and triumph!

4. Fearfully & Wonderfully Made
(1980), Philip Yancey and Dr. Paul Brand

Best-selling writer Philip Yancey and renowned surgeon Dr. Paul Brand explore the human body. Join them in a remarkable journey through inner space -- a spellbinding world of cells, systems, and chemistry that bears the impress of a still deeper, unseen reality. This Gold Medallion Award-winning book uncovers eternal statements that God has made in the very structure of our bodies, presenting captivating insights into the Body of Christ.

5. The Pursuit Of Man
(1950), A. W. Tozer

Tozer's profound meditations on God's pursuit of us will draw you into deeper spiritual fellowship. From God's continual presence in our lives to a daily, conscious dependence on the Holy Spirit, these powerful essays emphasize the essentials of walking with Christ.

6. The Knowledge Of The Holy
(1961), A. W. Tozer

An Inspiring Classic on the Nature of God, The Knowledge of the Holy illuminates God's attributes 'from wisdom, to grace, to mercy' and shows through prayerful and insightful discussion, how we can more fully recognize and appreciate each of these divine aspects. This book will be treasured by anyone committed to the Christian faith. It bears eloquent witness to God's majesty and shows us new ways to experience and understand the wonder and the power of God's spirit in our daily lives.

7. Holiness
(1879), J. C. Ryle

Everyone knows that we are called upon to be holy, but what exactly does "holy" mean? and what does "holy" look like? With his trademark candor, J.C. Ryle strips away the gaudy ornamentation that many confuse for holiness, and systematically unfolds the true beauty of what it means to adorn the doctrine of God our Savior. Deep, rich, and penetrating, this timeless classic is quite simply profound.

8. The Shaping of a Christian Family
(1992), Elisabeth Elliot

Elliot tells the story of her childhood to share valuable insights on raising godly children. She talks candidly on parental expectations, emphasizes daily Bible reading and prayer, and shows the benefits of practicing such scriptural principles as trust, discipline, courtesy and teaching by example.

9. Desiring God
(1987), John Piper

John Piper turns your heart toward the one true Object of human desire -- God. He shows how fulfilling your duty to delight in Him can change your attitude toward worship, toward marriage, toward material goods, toward your very mission and purpose on earth! Join him on a journey from desperate desire to infinite delight!

10. The Holiness Of God
(1985), R. C. Sproul

Sproul takes you on a journey into the awesome presence of God, and helps you wrestle with the tension that exists between God's terrifying holiness and his inexplicable grace.
