Jesus to downtown KC: Let’s have a mochaccino

Downtown Kansas City is experiencing a revival in the literal sense.

Earlier this month, Church Executive magazine (what, you don’t keep up?) ran a story about the decision made by United Methodist Church of the Resurrection, the Leawood-based megachurch, to open a campus at the Grand Avenue Temple.

Methodists have worshiped at Grand and East Ninth since 1866. The Grand Avenue Temple congregation dwindled over time, however. In its later years, the church existed mainly to serve the needy.

Church of the Resurrection hired a young guy, Dan Brooks, to make Grand Avenue Temple something else besides a soup kitchen.
