In January 2009, God directed Brian & Tina Ahern to start a ministry in Perry, Oklahoma. We had no personal connections to Perry, but we listened and obeyed this calling to plant a ministry and coffeeshop/cafe named "611 Bakehouse." Now, several years later, we are immersed in the community of Perry - we live here, we work here, we do mission work here. Basically, we do life here.
611 Bakehouse is the primary engine of our ministry. It is where we build relationships with people inside and outside the community and the place we get to love and serve every single person that walks through our doors. But, doing the day-to-day work through 611, as well as many of the other activities and commitments that we fulfill each week, requires additional financial resources than what 611 Bakehouse can provide.
Along the way, we have learned that community members want to help and want to be a part of the Vision that God has called us to in this community. They desire to be more than a regular customer at the counter of 611 Bakehouse (which we greatly appreciate!). They want to be a part of something that is bigger than themselves and they want to financially support a ministry that has a strong burden and desire to be transforming agents in the community of Perry.
The Bakehouse 100 is our goal to partner with at least 100 people willing to contribute $25/month or more toward our ministry. It's local... it's easy... and it's tax-deductible! We can even set up your contribution through ACH debit so you don't even have to remember to write a check each month. We would be honored to have you join our growing team. To get started, click on the links below and then contact Brian at email@example.com, by phone at 580-370-0639, or just come by and talk with him at the counter. We look forward to hearing from you!
