446 people die every day in Taiwan. Out of that, 432 don't know the Father.
We desire to be a light in what can be a dark place. That means spreading the aroma of Christ. Luckily we've got a place to do that.
At Aroma Church and Cafe we have found many ways to build up the ministry to continue it's vision of seeing Taiwan transformed by the Gospel. Videography, graphic design, social media, and marketing are some of our specialities, but we don't just want to stop there. Our ministry is a magnet for youthful Taiwanese who desire to get to know Western culture and learn English, so our cafe is the perfect place to develop relationships, build up young Christians, and it's even where we host our church! We don't want to stop here though...
There are many broken families and fatherless orphans in our district. Wanhua is the one of the poorest and socially outcast districts of Taipei, Taiwan. Physically the people ache and spiritually they long for the Father. These people need the Healer. And so we work hard to help them reconnect with their Creator.
We are partnered with an organization called Envision, a partner of the Christian & Missionary Alliance. Along with loving on and discipling Taiwanese young adults, hosting small groups, and intentionally pouring into the people we meet, we host Envision interns in our home so that we can provide encouragement, prayer, and refuge on those days when culture shock can be overwhelming.
CHRIST CENTERED DISCIPLESHIP
Sometimes the people we meet don't know how to forgive each other. Other times they're trapped in sin patterns or identity problems. Both Brittany and Justin are intentional about making time for those around them, whether it's as a one-on-one with a colleague, coffee and encouragement with an Envision team or intern , or perhaps even leading a small group through understanding the weekly sermons being preached at the Aroma Church. We have been given our Father's eyes for the people around us and want to see them flourish.
BIBLICALLY GROUNDED TEACHING
As church leadership, Brittany and Justin serve active roles in helping our community connect, disciple, and spread their new faith to the people around them. Justin serves regularly on the preaching and teaching team. Brittany can often be found managing outgoing communication between new friends and those that are interested in finding out what we're all about. In addition, our entire family loves hosting; Community Groups, Small Groups, Huddles, Church events... you name it and we want to help it happen. God has given us a gift to host others and provide that safe space for people to connect and develop.
GOSPEL CENTERED MARKETING & MEDIA
Whether it's social media or creating business cards. Justin and Brittany serve in active roles within the Aroma Church and Cafe ensuring that the organization as a whole presents itself as the aroma of Christ. Sermon media, promotional coffee shop posters, and event organizing are all part of our day to day at Aroma.
