We are Patrick and Leah Conti, two normal people who are embracing the adventure of serving God, wherever He leads. We are ending a season of living in Africa- having served the last 3 years in South Africa and Tanzania. After a combined 12 years of full-time ministry in 4 different countries, we have seen a theme develop in the global Church. Too often we see passionate people with a heart to serve God become tired and worn down, often by being ill-supported or working too long without a respite.
Our passion is to see missionaries and local pastors equipped and encouraged to do the work God has called them to from a place of health. We believe healthy ministers will serve the communities God has called them to more effectively.
Our name, Juniper Table, is inspired by Elijah's restorative encounter with the Lord under a Juniper tree in 1 Kings 19. In the story, the angel of the Lord fed a discouraged Elijah to give him strength for the journey to Mount Sinai where he had an encounter with God. We want to set the table for ministers of the gospel to have a "juniper moment" as well.
As the chapters of our story unfold you can help us strengthen these incredible leaders who are hungry to transform their communities through effective ministry. We can't and don't want to do this alone, and would love to have you on board!
Excited for what is to come.
- Patrick + Leah
