Dinner Church Encounter: Cape Coral/Ft. Myers, FL

Leaders all across the country are rediscovering Jesus’ dinner table theology that dominated the Apostolic Era. The present-day Dinner Church movement is giving leaders and churches a renewed ability to reach people who would never attend their Sunday morning gatherings. Join us for this special event to find out how the Dinner Church vision could impact your congregation’s ministry and leave with practical insights that can enable you to begin hosting a Dinner Church in your own community,

A Dinner Church Encounter is a 1-day training event, beginning with the rich theological history of the dinner church vision, and progresses throughout the day toward more practical insights that would enable a leader or group to imagine hosting a Dinner Church in their town. The training day includes light refreshments in the morning, lunch and light refreshments in the afternoon.
