For many years, Grace Anglican Church has had a desire to plant more churches. We are so excited that Lenny and Caly Konschewitz, former missionaries and church planters in Europe, heard a call from the Lord to come and help us take the next step on this adventure. Our desire is to reach more people with the Gospel, and planting new churches is a great way of doing so.
Thank you so much for your interest in finding out more about this exciting project of our church. Please read through the following Q&A and don’t hesitate to get in touch with Lenny if you would like to know more.
Why St. Johns County?
St. Johns County is one of the fastest growing counties in the USA. Thousands of people move there every year and new neighborhoods are currently being built. In other words, there is a need for churches.
Our church plant: The Table Church
At The Table Church, we envision a “three streams” approach that blends the evangelical, Spirit-empowered, and historical streams of the global Church. This makes us distinctly AnglicanThe Table Church's Mission
- Encountering God
. From the “Table of God’s Presence” in the Tabernacle, to the table of the Lord’s Supper, to the “wedding banquet table” in the book of Revelation, we observe that God has always desired to create a place to encounter Him around tables.
- Uniting Believers
. The Table is also the place where we celebrate the new covenant in the broken body and blood of Jesus. Regardless of our background, our ethnicity, our age, or our status in society - we are all equally loved and united in Christ.
- Inviting the World . Finally, The Table represents the place in our own homes where we enjoy and build relationships with family, friends, and neighbors. Our tables help us reach others.
From the outset, our church will carry a DNA of local and global missions as well as multiplication:
Locally, we sense a call to serve the children and youth in St. Johns County. At this point we are still praying about what exactly this will look like, but it is interesting that many people who are already connected to the church plant have jobs that help children in some way.
Globally, a special focus will be on Europe. Many centuries ago, Europeans arrived at the shores of St. Johns County and founded the oldest city in the United States, St. Augustine. With our lead planters, Lenny and Caly, having served in Europe over the last decade there is a natural “bridge” which we believe God has intentionally built for his purposes for Europe.
Lastly, we envision a church that multiplies itself by planting more churches in the future in St. Johns County and beyond.
More about our lead planters
Lenny & Caly Konschewitz have been involved in church planting work in Europe for many years with Every Nation Ministries. As singles, they helped launch churches and non-profits in Nuremberg, Germany and Madrid, Spain; as a couple, they’ve helped launch a church in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
Lenny is originally from Germany and Caly's roots are in Florida. They have two sons, Elias (born in 2016) and Micah (born in 2020).
In the beginning of 2019, as their commitment in Belfast was coming to an end, Lenny and Caly began sensing a call from God to move to Florida to lead a church plant with Grace Anglican. Grace has been an integral partner and supporter on the mission field in Europe for many years.
