Rev. Howard E. Jones, Jr., Senior Pastor at Fairfield Missionary Baptist, the Church that owns Kingdom Café & Grill, says “This is an outreach ministry of the Church. Our goal is to provide a way for economic salvation rooted in our church and branching out into the community of Jefferson Street and beyond.”

Fairfield purchased the former Harpers Restaurant at 2610 Jefferson Street from Mr. Paul Harper and Senator Thelma Harper in July, 2015. Renovations and upgrades have been taking place and the newly named Kingdom Café & Grill will be open for business soon.

The menu at the café will be a variety of vegetables, meats, fish, salads and desserts, served cafeteria style in a pleasant dining area. The grill section will focus on short-order items, ranging from health conscious sandwiches to traditional fried fish sandwiches.

There will be a Circle of Love in Prayer event with the Pride of Tennessee Elks Lodge #102 on Saturday, May 28 at 12 Noon. Exalted Ruler Navery Moore will lead the ceremony along with Rev. Jones, and the neighboring organizations will join for a joint ceremony to work together with their various enterprises.

The goal for Kingdom Café & Grill is to help revitalize Jefferson Street by bringing back the vibrancy of historic Jefferson Street and helping it to regain its prominence of old; which was a time when thriving businesses, retail establishments and other social enterprises were peppered among the academic institutions in the area, which include Tennessee State University, Fisk University and Meharry Medical College, and even high schools, such as Martin Luther King Magnet High School for Engineering and Health Sciences and Pearl Cohn High School.

The Fairfield Missionary Baptist Church, located at 1004 S. Dickerson Road in Goodlettsville, strives to serve in an all-inclusive manner.

It does so through the living word of the Gospel and by social enterprises to support the holistic quality of life for its congregants, as well as the community at large.

The Church endeavors to be the great manifestation of Christ on earth, by believing that a Great Commitment to the Great God will result in the Great Commission growing a Great Church. For more information about the Church, visit their website: www.fairfieldmbc.org.

Donations to assist them to provide jobs for the job-challenged, a service to the community and helping to revitalize Historic Jefferson Street continue to be accepted on their website.
