Hatch-a-thon Alumni in the News!

11 · 21 · 19

It’s so exciting to see Hatch-a-thon alumni doing amazing things throughout the US, and to see their hatchling ventures flying!

Pastor Brent Raska and Burning Bush Brewery

Pastor Brent Raska, former pastor of a Chicago-area Presbyterian congregation, recently made the news with his new venture, Burning Bush Brewery, opening later this winter on Chicago’s North Rockwell Street in Lincoln Square.

The blockclubchicago.org post says, “Though operating a brewery is a career change for the pastor, he said Burning Bush will build community much like a church does. He hopes to partner with local nonprofits and community groups to host coat drives, fundraisers and fellowship.”

Rev. Meredith Mills and Gastrochurch

The Rev. Meredith Mills, pastor at Westminster United Methodist Church in Houston, TX, received coverage by the Houston Chronicle for her work with Gastrochurch.

Rev. Mills conceptualized Gastrochurch—dinner gatherings where the food supports the theological theme for the evening—as an intentionally created “space where a range of guests could come, somewhere outside of church walls, and talk about spirituality,” and to be “’church’ for people who didn’t fit in at a traditional setting.”

Congratulations to both!
