Café Serves Food, Conversation In A Contemporary Spiritual AtmosphereThe arrival of thousands of Seventh-day Adventists, including thousands of young adults, has added a new café to the entertainment scene of Toronto for this week. A Christian Café is up and running evenings after 8:30 at the Toronto East Seventh-day Adventist church, located at 170 Westwood Avenue, that will feature contemporary Christian music, snacks, and informal conversation.
The aim is to create a meeting place for young people who are uncomfortable in conventional church settings yet still want to know God. The café will follow community seminars presented by José Rojas, youth director for the North American Division of Seventh-day Adventists.
The café and its casual atmosphere are open to Christians and non-Christians alike, according to leaders from Impact Toronto 2000 Colette Muth and Wesley Szamko, who will host the café. "We want to open up the avenue of this type of ministry for youth to reach those who don't know Christ already," says Muth, who has run similar cafés in Australia and at Southern Adventist University in Collegedale, Tennessee.
