Cafe Fellowship is the evolution of a ministry the Holy Spirit directed the McKnights to form (April 2008) at Bible Deliverance Temple, where they were Senior Pastors in Augusta Georgia. On the first Sunday morning of 2008, brother Jim Jewell (guitarist with the Eryn Eubank's band "The Family Fold") shared that he was impressed for us to reach those who were "down and out," those who had fallen down and help them get back up! This vision was birthed with one pot of grits, a couple pans of toast, few dozen eggs, a little sausage and bacon. However it quickly grew to averaging over 125 meals every Sunday morning!
As it grew, the McKnights, along with the ACMN ministry staff including many volunteers, the BDT's membership support along with outside supporters, began to feed in excess of 10,000 free hot meals annually from their church campus.
Upon the McKnight's relocation to Jacksonville Florida, the Holy Spirit impressed them to continue ministry centered around worship, food and fellowship... especially with those in need of support while focusing on connecting, encouraging, assisting our Street Friends and Beach Friends of the First Coast.
This ministry effort, while in its infancy is currently facilitating the distribution of over 250 free hot meals weekly following a time of worship, ministry and prayer.
The McKnights are at the New Dawn Outreach Center every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday ministering, along with the Cafe' Fellowship-NDOC ministry team... also serving a free hot meal to those in attendance following each service. After the meal, personal interviews are conducted by the NDOC staff for those interested in receiving additional assistance.
