“What is God up to?” is the question I’m most often asked. “Have you heard of the dinner church movement?” is my most common answer.
Leonard Sweet, E. Stanley Jones Professor of Evangelism at Drew University

80 churches close every week in the US. Dinner Church Collective helps pioneering leaders understand the approach used by Jesus’ first Apostles to start churches so they can use it today.
The Apostolic Era did church primarily around tables with food. Why don’t we do the same?

A short conversation introducing DCC
Schedule a short call with a Dinner Church trainer to imagine how you might get started.
Every Thursday, the director of the FX Dinner Church Collective writes a blog that is intended to inspire leaders and create an opportunity for comments and conversation with other planters and DC practitioners. These blogs are broken up into three segments: #JesusStories, #DinnerChurchQuotes, and #PracticalStuff. There is no cost to this subscription.
This is a half-hour Zoom call held every Thursday evening @ 4:30pm Pacific Time. Any dinner church pastor or team leader can join, hear a weekly inspiration, engage in prayer with other similar leaders, hear dinner church stories, and converse about challenges. It is typically led by Verlon Fosner, the director of FX Dinner Church Collective. Every movement needs a heartbeat; this is ours. There is no cost to this subscription.
Any leader who has already attended an ENCOUNTER, PRE-LAUNCH, OR POST- LAUNCH is invited to attend another one free of charge via Zoom as a brush-up training. Not only is new material always being developed, but the Lord will undoubtedly help you capture something that was missed the first time.
We have designed a Map of Dinner Churches across the nation complete with day-of-the-week, time, place, and leaders contact. The purpose is to make it easy for leaders to meet, talk, and visit each other’s sites for growth and support.
