Kevin & Charla Lum, Lead Pastors

Kevin and Charla planted the church in their dining room in 2013 and have seen it become an innovative and diverse, staff-lead, multi-site church in the heart of Washington, DC. 

Kevin previously served in an executive role at various non-profits. Prior to planting The Table, Kevin served as the head Faith & Justice Churches for Sojourners. Faith & Justice Churches is a unique network that provides a place for churches across the country to receive much needed resources and a place to connect with other like-minded ministers.

Charla recently stepped back from her position as Vice President of Talent Management at Community of Hope.  Charla provided leadership in all aspects of staff development as the staff grew from about 25 employees at two locations in 2006, to about 250 employees at seven locations in 2017. During her time at Community of Hope they were also awarded the The Washington Post's Best Work Place award on three separate occassions. 

Kevin and Charla live on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC with their daughter Eloise. You can follow Kevin on Instagram if you want to be overwhelmed with stories about Eloise.
