I’ll answer the question you’re probably already asking right now. Yes. Those three things in the title can relate. I’ve experienced this truth firsthand many times over the last few years, but it was especially evident to me on a sunny day earlier this summer.

Judy Golden celebrates 20 years

Posted by on Jul 31, 2014


Judy Golden began her career at Northview by volunteering to clean toilets. That was thirty-one years ago. Judy and her husband were new believers who had crossed the line of faith under the teaching of Rev. Thomas Paino II, pastor of Lakeview Temple on Indianapolis’ Westside. The Golden’s lived on the Northside so Rev. Paino recommended a much closer church home, the church of his son, Rev. Tommy Paino III of Northview Christian Life — now known as Northview Church.

The Golden’s started attending and have been faithful members of the congregation ever since. Judy’s children were small then and she was a social worker turned stay-at-home mom. When her youngest son entered middle school her friend, who was also a Northview receptionist, was leaving for the mission field and recommended Judy to be her replacement. The rest is a 20-year history of excellence.

Northview Church’s Capstone Cafe & Bookstore is a staple in the Northview community — known for its amazing baristas, great selection of award winning authors and not to mention the infamous “Bronzer.” Val Welty, Capstone Manager, recently had a desire to make Capstone even better. It was time to get back to the basics — the coffee that is served in hundreds of different forms at Capstone throughout the week and during all three services on the weekend.

Capstone has always had a desire to provide the best product possible as well as partner with local companies and ministries that truly make an impact in the community. Thus, Kids Against Hunger has always been part of the process when it comes to selling coffee.  A portion of every coffee based drink or whole bean bag sold goes to support the Kids Against Hunger foundation — an organization committed to providing nutritious meals to the hungry around the globe. Therefore, it was very important to find a coffee roaster that shared Capstone’s same vision for ministry.
