Business As A Ministry

Our Ministry

At Jake’s Finer Foods, we believe this company is God’s company. We are grateful to steward Jake’s and view the “business as a ministry.” Our ministry vision is “to intentionally love, serve and minister to our team members, business partners, and community, so lives are impacted and people come to know Jesus and grow in their relationship with Him as their Lord and Savior.”

We know ministry can happen in many different ways, so we have a Director of Ministry on staff to help guide and grow our efforts. We want our giving to be a sign of our faith, whether it be monetary or of our time. Sure, we pray with and for our team, but we also give a percentage of our profits to a variety of Christian and local organizations and causes. 

We also host on-site Bible studies, take part in community service through our Jake’s Cares program, and offer a variety of Christian-based resources and classes for our team, on topics such as marriage, parenting and financial planning. Please let us know if you have a specific need you’d like us to pray for. It would not only be our pleasure, but a blessing.

Schools

Heading back to school can be fun and expensive! We offer school supply assistance to all our team members with school aged children. We are blessed to help more than 150 children start the school year with all their needed supplies. Additionally, we provide school supply assistance to some of the children at McDougle Elementary, a nearby school.

Neighbors

Easter is a very special time for us at Jake’s, and what better way to celebrate Jesus than to share His love with others. Each Easter we host an egg hunt for the neighborhood near our facility. More than 200 children hunt 3,000 eggs and enjoy snacks with our team.

Community

God calls us to be good stewards of the resources we are given. Well, when you’re in the food business, you have the blessing of feeding people! We love showing our appreciation to first responders with hot, delicious meals. We also partner with Kids’ Meals to prepare and deliver meals to underserved preschool aged children.

Partners

In partnership with our vendors and Sports Catalyst, we were blessed to send an entire cargo container of food and supplies to assist the refugee camps surrounding Ukraine. Click here to listen to our podcast with a member of the Sports Catalyst team.

The holidays allow us to share the love of Jesus by participating in The Salvation Army Christmas Tree Angel program. Our team members provide Christmas gifts to more than 55 children and senior adults.
