To change the lives of our community...
one cup and one heart at a time.
Why us? Why now?
At All for One (A41) Ministry, our mission is to unite local churches for the purposes of worship, service, and giving. To answer a question that has been asked by many: no, we are not a church. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization focused on building bridges among those in our area. We want to see lives changed in Jesus' Name, and we also realize that the deepest relationships with God can be experienced in part through authentic, meaningful relationships among His people.
This effort is all about our city. Everything about it is rooted in a deep and abiding desire to see lives changed in Greensburg and beyond. This community has a really special culture. While we have seen population growth in recent years, it's still an everybody-knows-everybody type of town. We love that. We want to capture the essence of our community in our community's gathering place. Your baristas will know you by name. They'll know your favorite drinks. They'll know when you're not yourself and when you might need a hug. That is what we're striving for: a place that knows and cares. Not a place where you are an acquaintance, but a place where you're a friend. Where you're not a number, but a name. And you're not a few dollars in the cash register, but a life and a heart that is worth everything. You are loved by God, and you are loved by us. That is what we are all about. Because this is a community benefit project, we are calling on the help of our community to make it happen. Every dollar, every idea, every prayer. It's all-important, and it is all necessary for this effort to be successful. We are ready to make it happen, and we are confident that, with your help, we will be able to make this community dream a reality!
How did we land on the name "The Branch"?
You're not the first one to ask!
We wanted something that conveyed outreach. We are rooted in the needs of our community and reaching out to serve our neighbors.
Since the Tower Tree is the hallmark of our community, we thought it was only fitting to incorporate the tree into our community's gathering place.
John 15:2-5 gives us clear instructions to abide in Jesus as branches to a vine. Walking with Him, we are empowered to love and serve as He has.
Frequently asked questions
Why should I give to a coffee shop?
The simple answer is: you aren't. Coffee shops are typically for-profit and not always community-focused. We aren't just a coffee shop. We are a gathering place first and foremost. Coffee is merely a vehicle to start a conversation. Coffee has a unique ability to establish common grounds (pun intended) between individuals.
Is this place going to be really churchy?
Nope. Even though we are a faith-based organization, we realize that not everyone comes from that background, and we respect that. We are not called to love conditionally. When we say "community gathering place", we mean it. It is for all the people-- regardless of their religious affiliation. So you will find our team living out faith through action. Not by hanging Bible verse decor around the place and quoting Scripture to each customer.
Why would this place stay in business if others haven't?
Because we're different. Those who have gone before us have done a lot of things right, but we will add value to this community by pushing the community aspect; by being a place where you can come in, sit down, and do life. We will do everything with excellence and with love. Not to mention, we'll have some pretty weet amenities that make us stand out: free wi-fi, a rocking event space in addition to the world's best coffee drinks.
Philanthropic giving is for the rich... isn't it?
We are fully expectant that this place will have a monumental impact on the communtiy, so we are calling on the help of our community to make it happen. We want our residents to have a vested interest in this shop. It is yours. It is ours. Time and time again, we have seen God do a lot with a little, and we are trusting in Him to move again for this cuase. You don't have to be rich to have an impact. Every dollar. Every prayer. Every volunteer hour. It all counts.
