Thank you ALL who donated to A Seat at the Table in yesterday’s GivingTuesday! Your more than $20,000 in donations will help equip our new family home in Ferguson for promising young women. Please also consider becoming a MONTHLY SPONSOR as well at www.aseatatthetable.org/donate.
Oct. 19, 2021 was a BIG day for A Seat at the Table! Thanks to generous donors, we purchased our 2nd STL-area home: a 7-bdrm, 4 full & 1 half bath 2-story in the north county community of Ferguson. Highlights include: a finished-basement with a second kitchen, spacious family room and a large sunroom. We’re excited to soon welcome in 4 young WOMEN to live with a phenomenal set of host parents! Check back soon for more details on our host parents and in-coming young women!
Recently, with the help of interviewer Henry Wynd and videographer Brian Mongoven (both Youth Crossing standouts in their younger days!), we recorded thoughts from our current three A Seat at the Table residents, Jamel Williams, Larry Hearn and Resident Intern Joe Lewis III, as well as from co-founders and host parents Bob & Chrissy Stergos.
These excerpts will give you an idea of the impact A Seat at the Table is having on all their lives… and a preview of what, with your help, we can also do for the 3 to 4 girls who will move into our second A Seat at the Table home:

Included in Crossing Pastor Angela Beise's insightful "Paul-Timothy mentoring" weekend messages was an interview with our resident Larry Hearn and Executive Director Bob Stergos.
We're so thankful to Angela and The Crossing for raising awareness of A Seat at the Table and to our supporters for making this ministry possible.
And if you missed Angela's weekend message, you should check it out here: https://thecrossing.online/message/timothy.
Please join us in welcoming our newest (and 3rd) A Seat at the Table resident, Larry Hearn. Previously a Webster University student, Larry will be transferring next school year to Missouri Baptist University, majoring in Ministry & Leadership. After undergrad work, Larry plans to get his Master’s to become a Family Counselor. Like our other residents, Larry attends nearby Midtown Church, and was nominated to us by his Pastor, Aaron Turner.
Larry is also quite the poet, as you can hear with his poem written 5 years ago: “Crippled Society!”
