A NETWORK OF RISK-TAKERS BREAKING DOWN THE BARRIERS BETWEEN THE CHURCH & THE WORLD

With Jesus, we find the table was never the end goal of an evening or event but rather a conduit to something else, to something mysterious that magically turns meals into occasions and lifts eating beyond nourishment to friendship. It’s in this simple, everyday place that the barriers between the church and the world break down. Helping you join Jesus in that space, right where you are, is what we’re about.

How can we serve you?
