Uncommon Grounds Cafe Vision
Uncommon Grounds is the national headquarters for Church Army U.S.A. Church Army’s mission is “to train up evangelists within the Church of Jesus Christ to “Go and make disciples..” We want to equip the Church to get outside of its four walls, to meet people where they are, and to bring them the gospel of Jesus Christ. Ultimately, we want to see the church become comfortable with the idea of reaching out to the "least of these" and seeing them brought into fellowship with Christ and His Church.” https://churcharmyusa.org
