New Paris family starts Do Right Coffee as a funding mechanism for missionaries
Do Right Coffee raising funds for missionaries
Brew together one man’s passion for coffee and his family’s love of church missions, and those are the grounds for Do Right Coffee.
New Paris resident Mike Silliman, the care and connections pastor at Grace Community Church, said the idea for Do Right Coffee began percolating in his mind for about a year before he broached the concept with his family early this year.
“I love coffee,” Mike said. “A couple of years ago I started roasting my own coffee. Also, we love missions and going on mission trips.”
It cost the Sillimans $1,500 per person to travel. “Nine thousand dollars for our family was huge,” he said.
That got Mike to thinking about how he and his family could help other missionaries fund their trips. “How can we help?” Mike asked himself. “We can leverage what we love and create an avenue for people to go out on mission trips.”
