From Oak Tree Communications: Jim Mullaney is a creative Christian businessman with a heart for ministry. He and an ecumenical board of Christian leaders based at the Lindenwald United Methodist Church in Fairfield are expanding their five-year-old kettle corn BIZNISTRY nationwide to benefit nonprofits and help shine the light of Christ in places where it isn’t normally visible. The ministry, a nonprofit organization called Christian Ministry Campus, Inc., attends about 25 outdoor festivals and other events each year and sells $5 bags and $6 tubs of freshly-made kettle corn out of an “Amaizing Grace”-branded kettle corn booth. Volunteers at nonprofit organizations help staff the booth and 20 percent of profits go to their organizations; another 20 percent goes to the event host organization. Revenues awarded to nonprofits have been “popping good:” Amaizing Grace has generated $185,000 over the past five years and awarded $60,000 to local ministries and host organizations. The rest of revenue goes for supplies, equipment costs, and to expand the organization. Each bag or bucket of kettle corn contains a salvation message meant to encourage people to turn to Christ, said Mullaney.
