We will not have a coffeehouse on the first Friday in November. Instead, we'll have A Taste of Jacob's Well inside the JesusFest Pavilion at the 2nd annual Lifestyles Expo CT on Saturday, November 8. Live performances will be held at 10 am, 11 am, 12 noon, 1 pm, 2 pm and 3 pm. Admission to the Expo is free. Click on the logo above for a hotlink to the Expo website.
Jacob's Well was recently featured on the Crossroads Magazine TV Show produced by the Archdiocese of Hartford Office or Radio & TV. Click here to view the segment, which featured Gospel Doo-Wop singer Walter Santos.
We're now in our 20th year of coffeehouse ministry! Here are some of the testimonies that we have received:
"I've spent a lot of money going to a lot of events, but this free event was the most inspirational event I've ever been to."
"I've been doing the coffeehouse circuit across New England for nine years, and Jacob's Well is my favorite venue. It's also the only coffeehouse that consistently shares a gospel message and invitation. I find that refreshing!"
"This storefront coffeehouse is awesome. Very alive. I love the outreach and the preaching!"
"It was my 48th birthday when I went to your coffeehouse free of charge...to my delight, the evening was amusing and full of joy. Talent went through the setting and into the street. I tell you, you're Jacob's Well is worth all the time and effort. Thank you!"
"Jacob's Well is one of the best Christian coffeehouses I've been to. The historic storefront venue is great, the crowd is attentive and engaged, and the Good News is preached more clearly than at any coffeehouse I've been to in years."
Joyfully yours, Drew Drew Crandall, Director Jacob's Well Christian Coffeehouse
Jacob's Well is held inside an 1889 storefront with tall, colorful ceilings; big windows facing Central Park; cafe-style tables and chairs; and dimmed lighting. It's a wonderful atmosphere for a classic 1960s/1970s style Jesus Movement coffeehouse!
Coffeehouse director Drew Crandall first became acquainted with coffeehouses when he lived in Chicago in the late 1970s. His wife Dawn came to Christ at a Christian coffeehouse in Worcester, Massachusetts in the early 1970s.
