A Little About Get Up and Go Ministries

Steve and Ann CorbinWe are Steve and Ann Corbin, residents of Pickens, South Carolina. For 18 years we served as North American Mission Board Volunteer Missionaries with the Southern Baptist Convention. In March of 2011, we started Get Up & Go Ministries, a non profit 501 (c)(3).

We exist to help those within the body of Christ to realize that they are a viable and important part of God's plan to reach the world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, using their God given spiritual gifts as an effective means of communicating the Gospel.

Cafe Connections, is our local outreach of Get Up & Go Ministries. Cafe Connections seeks to demonstrate the love of Christ through simple acts of kindness and hospitality to all people, locally, nationally and internationally.


We are a member of the South Carolina Christian Chamber of Commerce.

Cafe Connections, Pickens, SC, will be hosting another women's event called, "God, You Say - Finding Joy in Who God Say's You Are". Our featured speaker will be Candace Payne, also known as the "Chewbacca Mom". In 2016, Candace reached more than 200 million people when her surprise outburst of joy at the simplest pleasure of a Star Wars mask went viral on Facebook.

Since that time Candace has gone onto publish a memoir detailing her personal journey of discovering joy called, "Laugh it Up" and a small group curriculum, "Defiant Joy: What Happens When You're Full of it". She is a beloved speaker and speaks at multiple venues throughout the year.

The event will be held at East Pickens Baptist Church, 2244 Gentry Memorial Highway, Pickens, SC 29671.
