Coffee House Teaches Biblical Lesson

Kirk Walker has had a passion for coffee since he drank his first cup at age 14. His love for the brew has since led him to launch a business that is not only satisfying palates, but also creating ministry opportunities.

“The name always gets people’s attention,” Walker says of Shadrach, Meshach & ABeanToGo Inc., the gourmet coffee company he founded in Goodrich, Mich. “Mostly the secular world has reflected back to their childhood and remembered those things” they learned in Sunday school.

Walker says God gave him the name several years ago, but brought it back to mind in 2003 when he was praying about the next step he should take after his concierge business failed. He launched ABeanToGo ( the following year, and today its coffee is sold in grocery stores, restaurants, theaters and coffee shops in 13 states, as well as in Christian stores and church bookstores nationwide. Last spring, Walker and his wife, Amy, opened a cafe of their own in Goodrich, which he says has created opportunities for the couple to pray with customers.
