Nonprofit in Training: Bread Coffeehouse

Making Bread...
Bread Coffeehouse offers free coffee to Emory students. They act as a refuge for anyone, of whatever faith background. Students are given lavish hospitality, and in the process are introduced to Jesus, then a small group, then a bible study. ‘We watch Jesus transform lives" says Angie Stryker, Executive Director. Even with 15 years experience as a campus minister, and a Management degree from Georgia Tech, after running the Bread ministry for a few years Angie realized she needed help. Hearing about LEAD, she saw it would provide the understanding and structure she needed to do her job. “I love learning that I’m not alone, that the challenges are common to all nonprofit leaders. I appreciate the variety of backgrounds in the class. I also really like the expertise of the trainers, and the practical Best Practices they bring to us. The class on inbox management was transformative!” “I love my coach Bob. He has so much experience, and is able to share a wealth of information. He helps me with specific and personal ways to shape the organization. He’s also able to walk me through the steps to implement the training.” For more information, go to: https://www.breadcoffeehouse.org/
