Since JD’s church in Minneapolis reimagined itself as a Dinner Church, they’ve reached people in their neighborhood they would never have met before. This shift was inspired in part by their experience at Thanksgiving. In this episode, you will hear J.D.’s story about how they used the lessons of a Holiday service project to help start a different kind of church.

He and his wife have three kids and a springer spaniel who all love the outdoors and good food.
