q cafe revitalization and 10%

So, the Q Cafe is closed for about one month. Q Cafe is a non-profit/non-religious cafe birthed by Quest Church in our efforts to “be a good neighbor.”  We’ll be reopening on Monday, January 14, 2008.  During this short break, we’ll be taking some time to reorganize and revitalize the cafe.  We’re excited about our two new staff:  Anu Orebiyi will be the cafe director [anu(at)qcafe.org] and Bethany Peterson [bethany(at)qcafe.org] will be the live music/art coordinator.  Feel free to contact them if you’re interested in volunteering with either the cafe or live music.

One of the things that we’ll be changing is the website.  I’ll simply redo it via a wordpress blog for the time being until some web guru can take it to the next level.  But having said that, please enjoy the current Q Cafe Website before it gets taken down next week.  It’s really a beautiful website.  Many thanks to Hage Creative for his work with both the website and the photos.  Please do me a favor and visit his photography site…it’s not easy starting your own small business.

As we have this past year, we will be giving away 10% of our monthly cafe sales to an outside non-profit organization.  So, we need to finalize a list of 10-12 organizations to donate our proceeds.  Our hope is to give half to local non-profits and the other half to global organizations.  This year, we are asking patrons, supporters, and friends of Q Cafe to make suggestions who we should support.  Each month, we’ll also highlight those organizations. 

So, take a few moments and make your recommendations here.

    I actually think the current qcafe site is fantabulous!

    I was in the neighborhood on Thursday and hoping to a) hang out with friends from work who work down the hill from Q, and b) have a good cuppa joe and wifi, and c) celebrity spot the world-famous Eugene Cho, but… no luck; Q Cafe had just started renovation.

    (The website doesn’t say that the renovation has begun though ;-))

    I don’t know much about running a coffee house, but when I do visit one to get work done, I usually do it at night and when I was a student, I used to sleep late into the morning, classes all day and study at night. So my guess is, other than first thing in the morning, coffee houses get most of their businesses in the evening and at night. Also, I don’t think people like sharing tables. So maybe having more smaller tables just big enough for a laptop, a book and a cup of coffee will invite more patrons. Lastly, Sunday nights are school nights and are for cramming.

One Day’s Wages

My Instagram

The family that karaokes together stays together. #ChoFamilyKPopFamily Family time in one of my favorite cities in the world - especially when the exchange rate is so favorable. Thank you, Vancouver, for being such a great refuge for our souls for the past 20 years. #QuestVancouver It's the day after...that day.
Be grateful. Again.
We woke up. We're alive.
Breathing. Dreaming.
Pursuing. Embodying. Loving.

It's never that perfect or easy but that we get to try to do these things is reason enough to be grateful to the One who gives us life.

Yes. Be grateful.
That you, Jesus.
#PreachingToMyself This is what real life looks like after a crazy couple weeks. Grateful for this woman. I love her. She's gonna scream at me for posting this pic. #ThoseSocksThough Grateful for the opportunity to encourage 2500 youth leaders & pastors at the @youthspecialties conference in Cincinnati, Ohio. Had prayed for wisdom to encourage leaders and courage to navigate a word for leaders post election about empathy and compassion for the unseen, marginalized, and those experiencing real fear.

Also, what a joy to have my church's youth pastor, @cobycagle, also here teaching. Some years ago, I was a youth pastor for several years in California, Korea, NY, and NJ. They were meaningful years but filled with challenges and loneliness. Sometimes, I felt unseen and insignificant - in comparison to "real" adult ministry. As a lead pastor now, I want to make sure I don't make those mistakes of overlooking our youth and children's ministry and their volunteers and staff. 
Pastor Coby, Pastor Katey, Pam, Jalle, and Jasmin: We see you. We appreciate you. We are grateful for your presence and leadership at Quest and beyond. Thank you and all of our amazing volunteers Wow. So proud of our 13 year-old son. When he began the trumpet in middle school, you could say it was a little painful. But this cat has got some groove. He's taught himself the piano, guitar, and really come along on the trumpet.

Parents: Fret not if you have no musical skills. I am living proof that musical genes or the lack thereof are not passed on. #AsianMilesDavis
