What is Table Talks?

Missionary Table Talks are one-day seminars for pastors, missionaries, and mission leaders. The goal is to help bridge the chasm of misunderstanding between many pastors and the real-life experience of missionaries. Important subjects that undermine a church’s investment in missions are addressed and discussed in a relaxed, informal, confidential, and non-judgmental setting. A Table Talk is not preaching or Bible exposition.  The subjects are presented in a forum/workshop format. There is no cost to attend. Coffee breaks, snacks, and lunch are provided.  

Topics Discussed

The Subjects Addressed At Table Talks Have Included Narcissism, Pragmatism, PTSD And Missionaries, Missionary Sending Responsibility, And Missions Finances.
