United Church of Christ military chaplains have found an old way to invite U.S. soldiers into a safe and informal place where they can receive spiritual care and good coffee. Congregations and individuals can support the Coffee House Ministry and simultaneously participate in the UCC Coffee Project by sending Equal Exchange Coffee to the military chaplains in Afghanistan, and Kuwait. Since its founding in 2006, Holy Joe's has served over 22 million cups of coffee to troops who need to discuss their experiences and supports 151 military chaplains!
