Dear Friends,

I am so excited to share with you the call that God has placed on our lives to start a new church in Denver. As we have discerned our call to start a church, God called us to Denver. Since moving here in August, we are even more excited that God has called us to Denver — a great city in great need of the Gospel. 

Denver has exploded as a city in the last twenty years. It has shed its cowtown reputation and become a city that grows by a thousand people each month, mainly from the millennial generation. And they move here to be close to the mountains, for the weather and even for the legalized marijuana. Simultaneously, Denver is on the leading edge of secularization. Churches are shrinking and closing all across the Denver metro area. 

Our hope is to be a part of a changing tide in the city of Denver — to be one in a myriad of new churches being established all across the city. To invite people into a relationship with Christ and form a community who worships and serves together.

We believe this happens around a table. Thus we are calling this church planting endeavor The Table Project. Whether we are eating, working, relaxing or worshipping, our lives take place around a table. And we believe our deepest hungers in life can be finally satisfied around the table of God’s grace and mercy, in and through the person of Jesus Christ.

And so we want to share our vision and strategy with you, in the hopes that you would too would have a vision for what God is doing in the city of Denver. And we pray that you would join in this mission by praying for us, partnering with us and even, if God calls you, to personally join in this new work God is doing. We believe the establishment of a new church will take $150,000 per year for five years for a total of $750,000. More details on our budget are available upon request.

Starting a new church is no easy task, but we believe that with your partnership, God will sustain us and guide us in this endeavor. It is infinitely encouraging to us to know that you are with us, praying for us, and supporting us in this work of God. 

At the bottom of each page, you will find links to the details of the scope and vision of The Table Project, as well as a link to our giving page with Aspen Grove Church Planting Network.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me. 

May the grace and peace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ be with you always,

Mark Grapengater
