Lafayette Park UMC is a progressive urban local church in one of the oldest parts of St. Louis. Through prayer and discernment, a small group of disciples began exploring the ministry and business of social enterprise. Social enterprises are ventures that advance its primary social or environmental mission using business methods. The group’s first social enterprise venture resulted in Bridge Bread in September 2011. Since then, Lafayette Park has started HomeFirst, New Beginnings and Fresh Start.
