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.

Review 1 for Starting a House Church: A New Model for Living Out Your Faith
Date:July 4, 2007
Terry A. Pfautz
This is an excellent "nuts and bolts" look at house church ministry and what is on the next horizon for the church. Larry and Floyd's hearts are well expressed on the pages of this book. It is not only insightful and thought provoking, but gives you hands on ideas on what it means to do house church ministry. A must read for all of us that are asking the BIG questions about where the church is headed.

Larry and Floyd have provided cutting edge thinking and revelation to an emerging reality in how many believers will be living out their faith in the years to come.The beauty of this publication is the integration of the house church concept with all of the other wine skins God has established. If you are a house church practitioner it gives you a sense of credibility with some good examples of how its looking in various parts of the country.Each of our network house and micro churches is currently reading and reviewing the book as a way to measure and evaluate what we are doing.
