The Bird & Baby Café opened on Grimerud Farm in 2015 to serve the staff, students, and guests of YWAM Grimerud. Our aim is to practice generous hospitality and serve as a bridge into the surrounding communities through creating a cozy and welcoming environment for all. We brew high quality and ethically produced coffee from Solberg & Hansen through a variety of methods and offer freshly baked, homemade food and pastries daily. All of our staff work voluntarily, and a large portion of the proceeds of the café go directly toward funding some of YWAM’s many humanitarian aid projects around the world. Check back here regularly to see which project we’re currently supporting!
We’re always looking for new baristas to join our team. If you’re passionate about knowing God and making Him known, and you just happen to also love brewing artisan coffee (or want to learn how), The Bird & Baby is the place for you!
We’re currently accepting applications for volunteers on a full-time, part-time, and seasonal basis who want to go deeper into understanding and practicing biblical hospitality in a creative environment. Our desire is that each person who is served by our café would feel seen and loved, as well as be encouraged and edified by their interactions with our staff.
As a volunteer with The Bird & Baby, you’ll have opportunities to learn and practice professional barista skills as well as prepare and develop farm-fresh menus of food and pastries. You’ll also be welcomed into the fold of the YWAM Grimerud community and have many opportunities to take part in seminars and activities that will strengthen you in your walk with God.
Come and join us as we press in to know God and make Him known through coffee, creativity, and radical hospitality!
