MVBC Coffee House is a weekly gathering of college students and young professionals for discussion of contemporary topics from a Biblical worldview in a casual atmosphere.  We welcome individuals of all backgrounds and faith traditions to join us each week for lively conversation and thoughtful engagement of the doctrines of Christianity with the issues of the day.

Our Winter 2016 schedule features a series of sessions based on David Platt’s best-selling Counter Culture.  In this study we will discuss how a biblical worldview informs the most pressing and contentious issues of our day–including poverty, homosexuality, abortion, sex trafficking, climate change, immigration, and religious liberty–and challenges us to become compassionate, unwavering voices for the truth of the gospel in our homes, schools, workplaces, and communities.
