Most of you know that at the end of 2014 I joined The Table Network as their Regional Director over the Mid-South. Over the last couple of months I have received many questions from people wanting to know about my role specifically and the network as a whole. Although I have shared some of what we do before, today I wanted to share some the core initiatives of the Table Network.
ASSESSING // Whether you are an experienced leader or someone stepping out for the first time, a good assessment will help you determine your next steps as you seek to establish a disciple-making movement in your context. Our experience holds this process in high value, not as a way of entry, but as a tool that helps us better understand how to meet each applicant where they are.
COACHING // By nature of the leadership entailed with starting new ventures, many leaders often miss out on the joy that accompanies the journey. As practitioners, we understand the highs and lows leaders face...which is why we place such a high-priority on helping them successfully navigate the challenges inherent in establishing disciple-making movements. Whether you are an experienced leader or not, don’t go it alone.
TRAINING // The opportunity to begin new ventures can be found everywhere. Having the freedom to create something though, and having the knowledge and resources needed to create it, are often two different things. To help leaders bridge the gap we offer a variety of trainings: 1) Workshops specific to seeing disciples made and new churches form; 2) Leadership Residencies; and 3) our DETOX initiative.
PARTNERING // Working together is better than working alone, especially when the partnership doesn't translate into ownership. As a united family of independent communities...our partnerships not only offer ongoing training, coaching, and resources such as admin support and non-profit status for those who need it...but friendship, a pool of talents to pull from, and the opportunity to give with others towards the furtherance of our mission.
CONSULTING // Our heart is to serve any church or organization we can, not just the network. Our experience ranges from transitioning existing churches to planting new ones, and from the urban context to the small town and everything in between. Whether you are looking to establish a disciple-making culture in your context, create a leadership pipeline, or become a church-planting church...give us a shout, we’ll come to you.
If you're interested in any of the above initiatives we would love to discuss how we can join in assisting you. Give us a shout.
