Chelsea Spyres, who led the Leadership part of the Journey to the Table Steering Team
How do you see Journey to the Table working well with young adults?Journey to the Table works well with young adults because it focuses on such a unique life stage. It focuses on the transition of the young adult world, whatever that transition looks like in your life and talks about how to be in a faith community and how to live out your faith wherever you are. Journey to the Table, in its name and practice invites young adults no matter where they are on this journey of life, to the table, to a place that is welcoming and life giving. It invites young adults into deeper relationship with God, whatever that looks like for them individually.How has your involvement impacted you?Being involved in Journey to the Table has allowed me to connect with many other young adults on the steering team. It has challenged me to look at my life spiritually and to reevaluate my personal relationship with God who we are inviting others to be in relationship with.Describe Journey to the Table in one word: life-giving.And yes, Chelsea, I believe that a hyphen still makes it count as one word.

Why did you get involved with Journey to the Table?
I got involved with Journey to the Table because I wanted to help be a part of something that would have the power to connect young adults with each other and with God. After experiencing Chrysalis and helping lead many weekends I saw a need for something for young adults, and was excited about the conversation that was happening around The Upper Room which led to the creation of Journey to the Table.
