Support Open Table

Prayerful Intercession

Above all, we need your prayers of support for the success of Open Table. We trust the moving of the Holy Spirit and the hands and feet of our leadership team as we embark on a wonderful journey of spiritual development and theological growth.

Feeding Plaque

Thanks to a generous grant of the Lilly Endowment, Inc., every student admitted to the 2019 Open Table youth theology institute will be awarded a full tuition scholarship valued at over $2,500 and includes housing, meals, field trips, entry fees for all field trips, water bottle, and an Open Table t-shirt.

In order to see it grow, and see Open Table host more and more high school students each year, we continue to rely on the generosity of others. See some of our more costly annual expenses below.
