WHat is the stone table?

For Kingdom Impact

Our Story in a Nutshell

The Stone Table leverages business to create sustainable revenue for global missions work while serving the Church in the arena of faith and work. We were created because the founders of Community Reinvestment Foundation (CRF) desired to have a business which supported missions work around the world. And for over 25 years, CRF has given half its profits to The Stone Table to underwrite global missions projects. We are now expanding our work to help the next generation of entrepreneurs and businesses understand the biblical foundation for faith, work, and missions through a resourcing community.
