Community Resources

St. John’s CCDC Family-Owned Businesses

Here at St. John’s, we promote community-based living; shopping local, helping neighbors, and promoting organizations and businesses that give back to the community. Here’s our list of businesses run by St. John’s CCDC families:


Vis. is a new optical shop and eye clinic at the corner 8th and 8th. We are the one-stop shop for your eyes. Our goal is to bring you the best quality, aesthetics, and care you can find. We specialize in glasses and sunglasses from independent designers where nothing is mass produced. We are passionate about preventative and evidence-based eye care. Our optometrist is available for routine eye exams, contact lens fittings, infections, diseases and emergencies. Learn more here.

Bonfire Legal

There’s something special about a bonfire.  As folks gather around it, conversations grow deeper.  People draw closer.  Ideas get bigger.  Dreams seem attainable. Bonfire Legal aims to provide that same energy to the practice of law by providing outstanding legal services to its community of culture creators.  Our mission is to empower athletes, filmmakers, educators, students, coffee shop owners, coffee roasters, entrepreneurs, and small business owners to dream big, seek fun fearlessly, and to make the world a better place for everybody.


Dharana Method Meditation 

As a single mom who has survived depression, anxiety, chronic back pain, divorce and job loss, I’m passionate about sharing tools for taking care of yourself – on a budget! Meditation saved my life, and made it possible for me to re-prioritize my physical and mental wellness, find my life purpose, and really be present for my family. I want to offer you a meditation practice that – after a discounted investment (10% off when you give me the code STJOHNS) – will be a FREE tool for you for the rest of your life! Online training happens over 4 weeks, with one virtual session per week. I want to see you living your best life, in 21 days or less! Love, Amandha B. Jones – certified meditation and yoga instructor (personally trained by Dr. Deepak Chopra)



JT Decking

JT Decking is a local Salt Lake City based company that prides itself in custom outdoor woodworking and craftsmanship.

We build more than just decks; we believe your deck should be an extension of your home. Your outdoor space should be your own sanctuary. We believe a tasteful deck is a lifestyle!

Nate Christenson Photography

Snowboarding was Nate Christenson’s entry into the world of professional photography, and it’s from that culture of risk taking and deep camaraderie that he developed his empathetic style of visual storytelling. The legacy of his snowboarding days is still evident in his vibrant images, in the instincts honed at speed on icy slopes and the immersion into a culture that prides itself on pushing limits while maintaining a laid back approach to life. Action shots and emotionally truthful portraits are rare companions but in the photography of Nate Christenson they expose both sides of his talent. Working across editorial, advertising and live action for the last twenty years, he approaches subjects and complicated assignments with the same sharp eye and open mind. Behind every one of Nate’s images there is a story to tell, whether of struggle or achievement, joy or pain, arrogance or humility. From every project, he leaves with those stories captured in a single frame. Learn more here.
