The Brushfire ministry and coffeehouse is possible because of its team. Many voluntarily serve as part-time interns and baristas, while some serve full-time. Full-time staff are involved with planning, communication, and behind the scenes work related to the ministry. Supporting full-time staff gives them the ability to stay in Gunnison and serve God and others through the Brushfire more effectively.
Our coffeehouse provides a means for people of all backgrounds and interests to grow in relationship with one another. We have a library of books in our shop we loan and give away as a resource for others to grow in their relationship of God and others. Supporting the ministry financially allows our bills to be paid and resources to be replenished, and ultimately the work to continue.
There are different construction projects or events that The Brushfire may have going on or planned that need financial support to happen. Helping financially with these helps The Brushfire be effective in a more specific way.
