Cookies for Ministry
She grew up in the southern shadows of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and if you carefully listen to Morgan Rubosky, you can still hear some of her lifelong Pittsburghese language spill out in a conversation.
As an introvert, Morgan always imagined she’d stay close to home for her college education, but when she heard about Cedarville University — located four hours from her Pleasant Hills Borough home — she immediately felt at peace about calling it home. Then, after one visit to campus with her mom, she knew this was God’s choice for her.
Four years later, Morgan graduated with a degree in youth ministry, and her life has since been filled with ministry opportunities in the most unusual ways.
First, she embarked on the biggest adventure of her life – The World Race, an 11-month missions program that covered 11 different countries. She didn’t know any of her ministry companions until a 10-day training camp leading up to the race.
She experienced life in the most primitive ways as she journeyed through South Africa, Indonesia, the Philippines, and Chile sharing the Gospel. American conveniences were traded for living out of a backpack and washing her clothes by hand.
Life didn’t get any easier when she returned to the United States at the end of November 2019, just months before COVID shut down the world.
For the world traveler, being confined to her personal residence was tough. COVID was as much a culture shock to Morgan as her 11-month, 11-country ministry.
So, with her family’s cookie business on the doorstep of closing, Morgan decided to take over the business, change the name, and use it to continue her support of missions. Morgan uses her business, Church Street Cookies, to minister to college students, support missionaries, and encourage ministries with her excess funds from cookie sales.
And, with a storefront business in the heart of Cedarville, business is thriving, and the Gospel is going forward.
