• What is Mesa?

    La Mesa is a Spanish word for table. It suggests a way of coming together in mutual acceptance, respect, and service. It reminds us of the life and message of Jesus - who used a table to tell the story of God's welcoming and reconciling love.

  • Our mission

    To embody and articulate what we perceive to be an emerging ethos amongst diverse groups of followers of Jesus, and to help that ethos be expressed as a global spiritual movement.

  • When's it happening?

    Beginning in 2013 with a gathering in Thailand 24 to 31 October, Mesa will be completed in 2017 with a final gathering. Regional gatherings and local conversations will happen in between these dates.
