The CLIMB INC., a ministry resource organization (Christ Like In Mind and Body). With a passion to affect and infect lives for the cause of Christ, CLIMB’S ROAST engages people from all walks of life desiring to infuse them with the message of HOPE.
Currently, we continue to follow God’s call by stepping out in faith when financially it does not add up. But the more we trust the more God continues to send those who desire to help and be a apart of something bigger than themselves. It’s all about the journey and the saving grace of Jesus Christ.

The CLIMB is about building relationships. Engaging people locally and around the world using coffee as the bridge to the marketplace. We desire to affect and infect lives for the cause of Christ, but make no mistake we are passionate about roasting fabulous coffee. This labor of love is about connecting lives and building community. Great roasted coffee opens avenues of conversation with people we would never engage otherwise.
In connecting lives through passion and giftedness, we help begin the process of advocating, promoting education and training those who are in need of opportunity and sustainability. Our avenue of equipping each person is carried out through our coffee roasting, K-cup production, food truck, Sackcloth and Ashes repurposed bags, and our up and coming 4,000 sq. ft. industrial teaching kitchen. Each of these ministries has the incredible power and opportunity to better lives.
The driving force behind this dream to empower and uplift is the construction of a 4,000 sq. ft. Industrial Teaching Kitchen to be located in SouthEnd. This kitchen will focus on educating those caught in human trafficking, veterans returning from tours of duty, and those that are in desperate need work by offering them an education in the Culinary world. We believe by creating this avenue of possibilities, lives will be changed for the good of those who desire a hand up, not a hand out.
“How big should we dream?” I was once asked. My response?
“Dare to dream big enough that you put yourself in a place that if God doesn’t show up it won’t happen.” The projects you see to your right are ongoing and God continues to fuel each of these dreams. So…stay tuned so you will know where we stand any where God is blessing us currently!
