Open Table | The Triumph of Relationship Over Poverty
The Open Table Model train congregation members to form communities – called Tables – that transform their vocational and life experiences into tools our Brothers and Sisters in poverty can use to develop and implement plans that create change. Congregations from 25 members to over 20,000 (estimated) practice the model.
At the core of A1:8 are three principles: assist the poor, care for the sick, and transformation through reconciliation. This year, NCC is partnering with Open Table to provide unique opportunities for the body of Christ to put these principles into action.
The vision of Open Table is to be a movement of servants restoring people in poverty to our communities through relationship and the investment of our own vocational and life experiences. Each community – called a Table – consists of 7 to 11 church members, each with a specific role, and 1 individual – called a Brother or Sister – who is overcoming poverty or other adverse life events. NCC will host the first Table in DC and the second Table in the nation supporting an individual who is a survivor of human trafficking.
