Your Mug Matters at Mugshots!
Mugshots Coffee Company was launched in 2015 by Hillside Church as vision of creating a space where community can come together over a cup of great coffee—and experience the love of Christ through baristas, staff, and friends. It has grown into a gathering place that’s known in Bloomington for its welcoming atmosphere and delicious hand-crafted beverages.
The vision eventually shifted to a partnership with Bethany Global University, which now manages the coffee shop. Bethany students, who are preparing for careers in missions, serve as the baristas. Not only are they learning a skill that can be duplicated in other coffee shops overseas (and even in launching additional Mugshots Coffee Companies), but the baristas are also learning to engage customers in gospel-centered interactions.
Hillside remains fully invested in Mugshots by supporting it as faithful customers and through our missions budget. Your mug still matters to us—and to Mugshots!
