Lifetree Café is an innovative, Christian, national program that resources a network of church-run Cafés, preferably located in private areas of restaurants and pubs. That resourcing includes providing materials like the well-produced, weekly discussion video that is shown in all locations. The friendly, guided conversations at weekly Lifetree Café sites cover topics that can be heavy or lighthearted, often generating keen insights about life, values and faith.
“People today want to participate in the conversation,” says National Lifetree Café co-founder Thom Schultz. “It’s not enough to simply hear someone lecture on an important topic. People want to share their thoughts, ask questions, and tell their own stories. Lifetree offers a safe place and time to do that.“
