There are several training opportunities for leaders who desire to increase their understanding of the Dinner Church:
HANDBOOKS AND RESOURCES:
Three books are now available on the dinner table theology, one of which includes a video series companion that can be used as a group discussion guide. All are available on this website under the “resources” top tab. This is a first step for any leader desiring to investigate the primary way the apostolic era did church.
DINNER CHURCH ENCOUNTERS:
These are 1-day training events that are offered in numerous locations across the country. They are typically held on Saturdays with training sessions from 9am-4pm, and then experience an actual Dinner Church gathering that evening at 5pm. These day events begin 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.
Note: If you are interested in more information about an upcoming Dinner Church Encounter, please fill out the contact box at the bottom of the page.
DINNER CHURCH IMMERSIONS:
Dinner Church Collective owns a training house in Seattle WA to host church leaders for a 3-day training and observation event. These visits include accommodations, breakfast’s, training sessions, opportunities to observe a couple Dinner Churches in action, and fireside dialogues with experienced leaders during the evenings. (note: it is assumed that each one attending a Dinner Church Immersion has read the Dinner Church Handbook or the Overseers Handbook, both of which can be ordered from this site.)
UPCOMING DINNER CHURCH IMMERSIONS:

COACHING & CHURCH TRAINING:
Verlon and Melodee are available to meet with leaders and leadership teams to craft mission vision and necessary transformational strategies. Further, numerous training approaches, sessions, and events can be custom-fit for churches that feel the need to get their congregation ready for a new neighborhood, a new mission-centric assignment, or a new way of doing church for people with a different sociology.
