The Coffee Shop Pastor Blog consists of devotionals and trainings aimed at equipping the saints for the work of the ministry (Eph.4:11-16) and aimed at Christians living on mission wherever they are. In short, we all can be coffee shop pastors. It’s not just for the paid professionals. God intended that everyone in the local church participates in the mission using their unique gifts in community with other believers. At our church, we call them Missional Communities (MC’s). Regardless of the name, we are trying to be like Jesus in community with other believers.

Keith Hartlaub is currently the pastor of “The Way Church of Harford County” (a new church plant in MD), a father of four, married to Olivia, a graduate of the Moody Bible Institute of Chicago, and a child of God. Keith also believes very deeply that the Philadelphia Eagles will one day win an NFL championship. In fact, he believes that God is an Eagles fan (Isaiah 40:31; Rev.3:7-13). 😉
