  History of Coffee With Conscience  

 

The Coffee With Conscience Concert Series was conceived back in September of 2000, by the minister of the Springfield Emanuel United Methodist Church, the Reverend Jeff Markay. The Reverend was searching for a way to involve members of his congregation in some form of service to the larger community. A group of interested congregants met and brainstormed ways to meet this goal. Those in attendance decided that a “Coffee House Style” concert series was the answer.

Such a series could act as a fund-raiser—raising much needed funds for worthy causes—while providing the participants with the opportunity to serve the larger community, providing artists with a venue to display their talents, providing an audience with a cultural experience and generally strengthening the local community by bringing a group of people together for an evening of music in a comfortable setting.

This arts program is made possible in part by a HEART GRANT (History, Education, Arts–Reaching Thousands) from the Union County Board of Chosen  Freeholders.

The citizens of Union County, are the primary beneficiaries. The concert series will benefit the county by bringing together all types of people for an evening of great music supporting worthy causes. The events are intended to provide the type of entertainment that is missing from so many of our communities…Entertainment that fosters community and friendship, structured around a good cause, presents a win-win situation for everyone involved.
