Dear Table Church,
Every summer I take a vacation with my family to rest, relax, and refuel for a new chapter in ministry. This vacation I’m reflecting on the incredible past quarter we had. The best part about my vacation is that I don’t have to worry one bit about anything happening at church. I know our organization rests in the hands of great leaders.
I’m passionate about investing in leaders and it’s something we place a big emphasis on as we do ministry together. In fact, the very first thing I’m doing when I return from vacation is traveling to a leadership training with five individuals who pour countless time, energy, and love into our community.
Someone asked me the other day why I was so passionate about investing in leaders. My answer was simple. That’s what Jesus did. The life of Jesus is a blueprint for building leaders and trusting devoted members of your community to carry your ministry to a place you couldn’t even imagine. The early church exploded not simply because of the power of the Gospel, but because of the people Jesus invested in. It was those leaders who carried on his mission long after he was gone.
The wins from this past quarter are not because of me but because of the leaders who carry the mission of this church. I’m so grateful for them. And I can’t wait to see more leaders rise up and take us even further.

At our three Easter services, we rejoiced as five individuals stepped into the waters of baptism! The holy sacrament of baptism is a beautiful symbol of dying to the old and being raised in the way of Jesus. It was a privilege to witness these baptisms as a church family.

On April 1, we celebrated Christ’s resurrection with three incredible celebration services. We had over 400 people in attendance making it our highest attended Sunday ever!

We love celebrating new life and welcoming kiddos into our Table family! This quarter, we had six child dedications across our two parishes.

We are better together and only exist because of the dedicated people that give of their time, talents, and energy. We hosted two ALL-IN Team Nights this quarter where we celebrated our leaders, worshipped together, and prayed for and with one another.
