Rail//Line Spotlight: by Josiah Ramos, Assistant Manager

Discipleship cannot be accomplished without love. During his time on Earth, Jesus modeled a beautiful picture of what it looks like to practically disciple others: simply sharing His love in everyday life. 

This loving attitude and welcoming atmosphere is exactly the environment Rail//Line Coffee House aspires to maintain. While providing leadership and job training, the individuals at Rail//Line work to reflect God’s heart to every person who enters the shop.

We strive to show love and grace every day and we have seen the way that God works in each person’s life. For example, our friend Harold, who is a regular, has had an incredible journey starting in the Montana Rescue Mission to now getting a job that he loves and an apartment. Another exciting celebration is with Aleiah who began in the apprenticeship program and recently launched into a job as a dental assistant. 

Learning about each person and getting to live life with them is one of the greatest blessings I’ve had working at Rail//Line. Continual growth is one of the biggest aspects of discipleship that we incorporate here at this amazing little shop. 

This past month, Rail//Line Apprentice, Promise, welcomed her baby boy into the world! His name is Lennox and it was amazing to finally meet him in person after so much anticipation. We also welcomed Elle Thompson as Director of the Apprenticeship Program who’s hard at work in her new role mentoring the staff.
