Purpose

A table is a place to gather, listen, share, and be nourished. This is what the American Church needs.

There is something simple and powerful about a table as a symbol and as a literal gathering place. Tables make room for all kinds of people, and everyone has something to offer or receive. A table is a place to be fed-and then go out with strength.

We want to see all generations of Americans invited to know Jesus.

The rising generation is increasingly missing from the Church. This diverse, action-oriented generation does not want to be "reached" or preached at; they long for authentic community and wholistic thinking. There are countless emerging young leaders whose perspectives and influence could dramatically strengthen the Church's outreach to the next generation-and through it, the future of the American Church.

We exist to convene diverse leaders in the American Church to put gospel relationship into action that shares Jesus.

In Jesus, there are no lines between evangelism, prayer, justice, and discipleship-they are part of the same whole gospel. If we're going to know Jesus more ourselves and invite more people to know him, we gain infinitely more by drawing together the collective strengths of the traditions of the Church.

We offer resources, training and action frameworks for national and local tables to work together on mission.

Jesus spent much of his ministry gathering people around him-and then sending them out on mission to share the Good News. This is the spirit of every effort of the Table Coalition. The table isn't the end goal; it's the starting place for gospel relationship in action.

History

Over our 25 year history, we have changed names, logos, and CEOs, but our focus has remained the same; share Jesus with America.

1974 - One year following the first International Congress For World Evangelization in Switzerland in 1974, The U.S. Lausanne Committee was formed as a statement by American leaders of their desire for evangelization of America.

1993 - The U.S Lausanne Committee launch the Mission America Coalition. Our founding chairs-Dr. Billy Grahm, Dr. Bill Bright (founder of Campus Crusade for Christ), and Dr. John Perkins (founder of the Christian Community Development Association)-tasked Dr. Paul Cedar, a national voice in evangelism, as CEO.

2017 - Dr. Paul Cedar passes the baton to Nick Hall, who was appointed by his peers on the board of Mission America Coalition as the next President and CEO. As a leading next-generation voice in the cause of evangelism, Nick is strategically positioned to bring multiple generations and spheres of the Church together on a shared mission.

Rooted in our rich legacy of partnership and in response to today's cultural climate, we step forward as the Table Coalition, again uniting around the timeless mission of sharing the good news of Jesus.
