"Sweet Surrender" coffee ministry brews in Poland
Tuesday, July 15, 2008
Gdansk, Poland
As the pioneer ministry in Gdnask, Poland, is in the process of becoming a full-fledged coffee shop, local ministers Dawid and Simona Berdowski recently completed a barista course, in which they learned to make espressos, steamed milk, and cappuccinos––all the basic orders in a modern coffee bar.

They’re working toward opening a coffee shop called “Sweet Surrender,” a wordplay on desserts and spiritual life.

“Ultimately, we want the people to taste that the Lord is good, as the Bible says, although in a very unconventional way,” said Dawid Berdowski. “Just like Starbucks has become a third place for many people, we hope our coffee shops can provide a similar atmosphere, where people feel good and safe. But as hopefully we will form our own coffee shop community, this fellowship would evolve into spiritual discovery groups as well.”

Work and Witness teams are set to begin construction in September; meanwhile, the team is working through a viable business plan to open the Gdansk cafè in October, with hopes that a sister shop could be opened in Poznan, Poland, next spring.
