Table Talk Podcast is Now Live!

"Table Talk" is a new podcast designed to help facilitate deeper conversations across our connection and enable us to learn together how we might venture boldly into this new season of ministry as United Methodists.

We want to engage in discussions that inspire curiosity, openness, and innovation in our different ministry contexts; explore questions that lead us deeper into relationship with one another and our communities; and experience what it means to embody the love of Christ wherever we are.

Stay Connected with The Vine

Community is a blessing God offers us in the body of Christ.

We welcome you.

Our prayer at the Lord's table is "make us one with Christ, one with each other, and one in ministry to all the world."  The Vine is grounded in that prayer.


Our Vision: Unifying to embody the love of Christ in Spirit-led actions one community at a time.
Our Mission: To discover, equip, connect and send lay and clergy leaders who shape congregations that offer Christ to a hurting world, one neighborhood at a time.
