Multihousing Church Planting The Church That Meets At The House
Readiness The Church Planting Process
Greet Priscilla and Aquila, my fellow workers in Christ Jesus, who risked their own necks for my life, to who not only I give thanks, but also all the churches of the Gentiles. Likewise greet the church that is in their house. Romans 16:3-5
Readiness Hear the cries of those who live in Multihousing
Then Jesus made a circuit of all the towns and villages. He taught in their meeting places, reported kingdom news, and healed their diseased bodies, healed their bruised and hurt lives. When he looked out over the crowds, his heart broke. So confused and aimless they were, like sheep with no shepherd, the overlooked and ignored. Matthew 9:35-36 (The Message)
What is worst than being lost? Being lost and not having anyone looking for you. Chuck Kelly, NOBTS

Priority of Prayer Ask of me… The Acts Pattern
Indigenous Leaders Persons of Peace The Acts Pattern
Often, the person of peace has the church meet in their home and may even be the new leader of the emerging church. A church that starts this way is unique in that it is born out of the harvest, and is bent on a mission to continue reaching the lost. Neil Cole, Organic Church
Oikos Household Network The Acts Pattern
Enlistment The Outside In Approach Paul The Missionary Macedonian People (Acts 16)
Acts 16 Outside In Enter the Area Evangelize the Community Equip the Believers Empower the Leaders Exit with Joy
Enlistment The Inside Out Approach Peter the Missionary Cornelius the Seeker (Acts 10)
Acts 10 Inside Out Invitation from God Initiate the Connection Impart the Gospel Ignite the Revival Flames Invest in the New Church
Epoch A process to engage missional leaders in the harvest
Epoch- An extended period of time ushered in by the brokenness and faithful praying of Gods people; bringing forth the sending of everyday Christ followers into the harvest to establish relational-based, mission focused, faith communities which results in the reduction of lostness among all people groups in North America.
Enlistment The One Word Secret to Volunteer Recruitment is ASK 1. ASK God 2. ASK the Potential Worker
