For owner, cafe is about more than just running a business

For owner, cafe is about more than just running a business

  • Updated

Recently, one of the recipients of both meals and sweet treats was Longview Nursing Home in Missouri Valley.

For Missy Rowe, her business is much more than just that.

While she loves cooking and serving meals, she also is running a ministry through the Cornerstone Cafe.

In fact, the slogan for the local eatery, located on the corner of North Fourth Avenue and East Sixth Street, is “One cannot live on bread alone.” A Bible verse from the Gospel of Matthew 4:4.

As a Christian, she said, I believe I wouldn’t have anything if it weren’t for God.

“And so therefore, all of my labor, all of my intentions are Christ-centered...,” said Rowe.

One of the main pieces of her ministry, Rowe feels, is feeding people, which she does through her business.

But sometimes, Rowe feeds people and it ends up not costing them a dime.

This idea of gifting a meal to a customer each day and gifting meals and sweet treats to businesses and organizations in the community started back in May.

Read the rest of this feature story on how Rowe is running this ministry in the September 9 issue of your hometown newspaper, The Twiner-Herald!
