CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Pastor Dave Bendett of the Rock City Church has an interesting side gig.

Bendett is the owner of Coffee Waves in Flour Bluff at 10309 South Padre Island Drive, which has been serving java to Coastal Benders since 2013.

It's a place where you can sit and relax, sip coffee and surf the internet.

Those offering have made it very popular with college students over the years.

They serve all flavors of coffee along with many food items.

Bendett is a very busy man between his two jobs.

But he's never too involved to keep from giving back to the community. His coffee shop is involved in many local charities over the years.

"Coffee waves, the door is always open to help other organizations in town so we do a lot when it comes to ministries that fight human trafficking and we do a lot when it comes to fighting against homelessness," Bendett said.
