About Shepherd’s Table
The Shepherd’s Table was established in January 2007. The quarterly event is organized by Transformation Forum in association with Prison Fellowship Ministries (PFM) at Lansdowne, local churches and faith based non-profit organizations. The purpose of the Shepherds Table is to provide a neutral quarterly forum in Northern Virginia to bring together Pulpit ministers from across denominational and cultural boundaries and the marketplace (including people of faith in government, education, media, arts/ entertainment, family, intercessors, faith-based non-profit organizations and any person(s) or civic organizations interested in seeing their city transformed.
In biblical times, the elders of the city met at the city gate to discuss matters of the city. Similarly, at the quarterly Shepherd’s Table pastors and elders meet for fellowship, prayer, to identify synergy opportunities, share ideas and discuss focus items and have a meal together Currently about fifty churches are praying and working in Christian unity within Loudoun County and this number is gradually increasing.
It all started back in 2006 when Jack Stagman and the original members of Shepherd’s Table established this pastoral prayer group and contacted PFM leader Jim Heigl (http://www.prisonfellowship.org). Jack was searching for a neutral and centrally located venue to accommodate the periodic meetings and PFM agreed to meet that need. PFM is always seeking to work with the faith community and provided the use of the facility conference room free of charge.
