The best conversations happen around the table. As we share a meal, we seem to share a piece of ourselves ― our experiences, our concerns, our beliefs, our hope. At the table, we pass down the history and legacy of those who have come before us.
And as we listen – truly listen – we begin to understand each other in powerful new ways. When we have a seat at the table, we have a window into a world beyond our own.
A Seat at the Table will help your church start vital conversations to build unity through diversity. It is an opportunity to bring together people from your congregation and your community and share the benefits of striving to be a church that includes persons of every color, culture and category from your community.
After this gathering, your church will be ready to take its next step on its journey toward greater biblical diversity.

Unity in diversity
Converge is a movement of churches working to help people meet, know and follow Jesus. We do this by starting and strengthening churches together worldwide. This includes reaching people of all colors, cultures and classes with the gospel of Jesus Christ and making him known throughout the world.
To accomplish this, Converge's Office of Biblical Diversity works alongside its U.S. regions to encourage, empower and equip your church to champion biblical diversity in your community.
