Our Story

Hands of Faith Fair Trade Ministry began in 2005 with fair trade coffee sales at Lord of Life Lutheran Church in The Woodlands, TX. In 2013, we opened the Hands of Faith store in a small church classroom. Our growing ministry, run completely by volunteers, now has its own storefront and is a proud member of the Fair Trade Federation. We continue our mission to promote fair trade principles. We currently sell items from more than 40 countries. Stop in soon and bring a friend!
We have superb volunteer opportunities! Age 15 and up are welcome. What a great way to earn Community Service hours! Greet guests and process sales. Excellent training provided. Pay = $1 in store credit/volunteer hour. Email lordoflifehof@outlook.com or call Beth Kuper at 281-384-8597 for more info. Sign up for shifts online.

What is Fair Trade?

fair trade matters Behind items that we consume every day (coffee, tea and chocolate to name a few) are farmers struggling to survive and support their families. Living in poor, rural regions of the world where paved roads and internet access are rare, small-scale farmers who produce these items do not have their pick of buyers. In conventional trade, middlemen take advantage of this and pay unfairly low price — prices that do not even cover farmers’ costs and leave them no money for nutritious  food, medicine, clothes or education. Children are forced to work instead of attending school. In line with Martin Luther’s teaching that that “we should fear and love God that we may … help [our neighbor] to improve and protect his property and business,” it is a way of doing business that acknowledges the worth and basic human rights of all people. When you buy Fair Trade items, more of the money you spend reaches the hands of the people who crafted them.
