One of the latest trends in churches is as old at the book of Acts - the house church movement. Barna research estimates that 5% of believers in the US are attending house churches, and this number is increasing. People want to express their belief in Jesus in ways that do not conform to a traditional church model. They are hungry for the close relationships that a small group model offers them.
Small church veterans, Larry Kreider and Floyd McClung have compiled a complete guide to getting your own house church off the ground. This includes chapters on: how to start, how to include children, how to lead, pitfall to avoid, and how to work together with other groups.
Theres a new way of doing church and its taking North America by storm! Here, a recognized authority on the house church movement and a popular speaker and pastor share their expertise in starting and maintaining a healthy house church. Together they look at current and future trends in the house church movement and provide best practice models for planting and leading house churches. Also, they explore how house churches are not always the same as simple cell-groups or small groups, especially in the areas of leadership and money. Readers will discover all the information they need to begin a house church in their community.
