The Table is working with Communitas International, an organization that has decades of experience planting churches in Europe (and more recently in North America). Below are the stages that we will be walking:
Embed & Initiate
embed: live with, listening to and participating in the social context
initiate: serving, meeting needs, and blessing those who live around them
these activities continue through the life of the missional initiative, we are always listening to and loving those we live alongside
Practice & Churching
practice: living a rhythm that becomes transformative
churching: maturing both individually and as a faith community
Hubbing & Extend
hubbing: create new initiatives
extend: reproduction – where we plant churches who plant churches who plant churches.
