Our Family Dinner Groups make it easier for brothers and sisters who have the gift of hospitality and leadership to host and join us on mission to be beacons of hospitality and community building so desperately needed in our cities.

Our Family Dinner Groups are a place for brothers and sisters develop real relationships, that allow them to know and be known, cared for and welcomed by others like family. While gathering as a larger city is vital, gathering in smaller groups is equally as vital to ensuring brothers and sisters have a real opportunity to develop lifelong friendships.

Types of Hosts

There are three types of hosts: Servant Lead Host, Home Host or Dual Host.

You can be a dual host who leads and hosts the group in his or her home. You can be a home host who opens up their home for Our Family Dinner Group gatherings). Or you can be a home host or servant lead host who partners with another home host or lead host.
