EXTENDING THE FREEDOM AND FAMILY OF JESUS TO ALL—ONE TABLE AT A TIME

WHO WE ARE

As a network comprised of church families and disciples seeing new ones form, we believe two things are found with every table. First, a picture of the radically inclusive invitation of Jesus to imagine how life--here and now--might be if only we believed we are held by a love that will not let us go. And second, a place to slow down with others around this ever present mystery.

With ministry experience spanning an array of contexts, we have found the Gospel wasn't news to many and most are not interested in attending anything the church offers. With hopes that they, and everyone, would experience the freedom and family found at the table Jesus prepared, we are:

"Extending the freedom and family of Jesus to all—one table at a time."

OUR FRIENDS SAID SOME NICE THINGS ABOUT US

“The Table Network is an exciting missional movement focused on gospel saturation in cities in America and around the world. They are pioneering new methods to stir up kingdom movements of multiplication for the glory of God. Check ‘em out!”

— Daniel Im, Director of Church Multiplication NewChurches.com/Lifeway
 

"God, through the Spirit, seems to be re-focusing the church on the worldwide co-mission Jesus left us: to make disciples. The Table Network is one of the more promising networks that are equipping leaders and churches to live into movement. Their emphasis on people finding freedom in Christ as they connect with God’s new family at the table, attests to their understanding of the grassroots work of movement, for it is simple, sticky and scalable. May God increase their tribe.”

— JR Woodward, National Director of V3 Church Planting Movement
 

"God's Kingdom is coming and His will is being done on earth as it is in heaven. The Table Network is helping networks like mine think deeply about how we are going to reach the 70% of the population who isn't going to come to a religious service.  They are enriching the conversion of how we make disciples who make disciples."

— Dr. Wes Hughes, Portland Church Planting, Urban Church Planting Catalyst NWBC
 

"North America is an ever-increasing salad bowl of cultures. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to Christian mission in such a diversity of landscapes. The Table Network is a breath of fresh air, rooted in Christ, committed to their neighbors, and willing to embrace a bi-vocational posture. This network is doing an incredible job of remaining faithful to the scriptures while contextualizing the gospel."

— Travis Vaughn, Director of Cultural Renewal at Perimeter Church, Atlanta, GA
