Jon Katov is the Founder and CEO of Open Table (www.theopentable.org). Jon’s mantra is – “A Movement of Us! Relationship Transforms Communities. We can’t restore our communities until we restore our relationships with each other.” In 2005, as a member of Paradise Valley UMC, Jon had a profound experience in a connection with Ernie, a homeless man. Open Table had its genesis (2005) out of that experience and it has become an international movement to help people develop better lives they envision for themselves. Jon and his team are now preparing to launch a new initiative called, Network Table ™, which our North District has the opportunity to pilot.
Join us for a pilot program overview and conversation about how your church can participate in the Abundant Church demonstration project and become a social capital pioneer in your community. As a pioneer church, your congregation will help develop, test and refine the ministry model.
This is just one of the offerings on January 26, 2019, at Green Valley UMC in Henderson, NV at the North District Leadership Training Conference. For more information and to register, click here.
