Meet a Missional Entrepreneur: Rev. Mike Baughman

1 · 19 · 16

Rev. Mike Baughman is the founding pastor and Community Curator at Union, a coffee shop/hub of generosity and community in Dallas, TX. If you happened to walk by, you’d see that Union looks and acts like a buzzing coffee shop on the edge of Southern Methodist University. In addition to serving as a “hub of generosity,” for the surrounding community, Union hosts a worshipping community, a storytelling stage, and—once a month—a cape-making factory that makes superhero capes for kids in local hospitals. They’re delivered in person by superheroes (okay, they might be SMU students, but if Flash shows up at your bedside wearing spandex and a mask, who’s to argue?).

Find out more about Rev. Mike Baughman and Union on their website or watch the video below. Mike also has a new book coming out soon entitled, Flipping Church: How Successful Church Planters are Turning Conventional Wisdom Upside Down
