WHAT IS THE OPEN TABLE CONFERENCE

Exploring God's Heart for Humanity

The Open Table is a unique conference that provides space for authentic dialogue as we explore questions about God, life, and spirituality. It is part of a relational movement, a growing awareness, that bows at wonder and mystery and delights in love and freedom. Hidden agendas do not fuel our conversation, rather it is the relentless love of God, like living waters filling the deepest spaces of our stories, that we seek to engage.

In this unique forum, nationally recognized speakers like Wm. Paul Young (author of The Shack), Dr. Baxter Kruger (author of The Shack Revisited), John MacMurray (founder of Open Table Conferences), and other distinguished guests “set the table” and invite us into a conversation that brings clarity of mind and heart and wholeness in our person. We offer an unparalleled opportunity to personally meet and speak with these men and women both in break-out Q&A fashion, as well as times together on stage. To this end, we intentionally limit space and attendance creating margin for intimate dialogue.

 Remaining true to its original inspiration, the Open Table remains a welcoming space to learn and be refreshed as we journey together in a different narrative – that God revealed in Jesus is better than we ever imagined.

Unbelievable Speakers

Paul Young, Dr. Baxter Kruger, & John MacMurray attend each Conference, as well as a myriad of Guest Speakers.

Q & A Session
