Teaching Materials

Household DevelopmentThis section is concerned with establishing an active Church House or a series of them in an area with a church building. An established Bible study, prayer or other home group meetings may be turned into a House. The Clergy would have the initial responsibility of selecting a leader and a host for each House. They would actively support the leader or a group of leaders, seek to mentor them and provide them with suitable teaching materials for the house as in Resources.

Weekly Meeting Times

The location and weekly meeting time for the House would not be announced generally but participants would be invited by the house leader. A sign up sheet could be provided for those interested in taking part. Initially, the Leader would enroll three other committed and active members of the church and they would invite four to eight others who might be less active, occasional attendees or non attendees. There could be some flexibility with numbers to a maximum of twelve. One house might be for teenagers only, or single and single again individuals. Another might be for a mixed group of different ages including children. Teaching materials would have to be suitable for the make up of each House. For the actual meeting agenda of each church house refer to "Running the House of Faith."
